LifeCell International, India’s largest and most accredited umbilical cord stem cell bank announced the launch of its 100th center at Jammu. This network expansion is part of LifeCell’s endeavor to make this valuable healthcare service of umbilical cord stem cell banking available to expectant parents in all major cities and towns in the country. With the launch of this center the reach of LifeCell now spans over 22 states covering over 80 cities and towns in India.

At the inauguration of the 100th customer service center, Mr. Mayur Abhaya, Executive Director, LifeCell International said, “We are extremely proud in launching our 100th Center in Jammu which is an important milestone for us. We are happy that we not only have the largest market share but we also have the largest network to serve our customers wherever they are. Our growth is the outcome of the encouraging response received from our customers”. “Jammu is an important location for us to have our center considering that it is one of the remotest locations in the country where generally many other products or services are not accessible. We wanted to break this trend and make stem cell banking accessible to the children of this city. The efficiency of our team and logistics blueprint will sure ensure successful preservation of stem cells at our facility despite the distance” added Mr. Mayur.

Today the penetration level in India is just 1/1000 when compared to penetration of 40/1000 in the US.
