ReeLabs is a leading cord blood bank in India. Cord blood banking in this region is of historic importance, because India has an astounding population of 1.4 billion. Representing 18% of the global population, nearly one-in-five people lives in India, placing it head-to-head with China as the world’s most populous country. India’s population growth is fueled by a birth rate (19 births/1,000 population) that substantially exceeds its death rate (7.3 deaths/1,000 population).
If you’re involved with cord blood banking, then you need to pay attention to this enormous and rapidly growing consumer market. In this interview with Dr. Abhijit Bopardikar, Director of ReeLabs, he explains the rise of cord blood banking within India and discusses the importance of pairing stem cell therapy and research applications with stem cell storage services.
