Providing a rich source of live-saving stem cells, seven banks of umbilical cord blood are coming up across India, and the first of the series will open in Gurgaon this// month.

Cryobanks India, a joint venture between Cryobanks International, a US body, and R.J. Corporation headed by Ravi Jaipuria, will invest Rs.1 billion to build the seven repositories in metro cities.

"A family can save the cord blood of their baby for Rs.60,000 for a period of 21 years and it is a one time investment by a family for a secure future," Trehan added.
