Why I founded Anja

“Anja (pronounced AN•jah) is named after my brother Andrew. Cord blood was his last chance at treatment for cerebral palsy, but we couldn’t find a match because we’re mixed race.”

How can I use the stem cells?

After birth, you have access to a portal where you can view your stem cell certificate and contact us in the case you ever want to retrieve your stem cells. You would need to have a physician ready to receive the stem cells for treatment (generally for a FDA-approved or clinical trial use case). We can get the stem cells to your designated physician shortly after you contact us.

Can I do delayed cord clamping as well?

Yes - delayed cord clamping includes delaying cutting the cord, allowing cord blood to flow back into the baby. You can do delayed cord clamping as well as cord blood banking with Anja.

What is the cost breakdown?

Anja Health Family Defense Baby, our package with just umbilical cord blood banking has an average industry price of $4900. However, Anja's is 35% lower because we prioritize accessibility and have a tech-enabled platform that lowers costs via automation. Cord blood banking in general is an investment, however, because stem cells have to be carefully manually processed and cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen, which is a hefty process.

Why bank the placenta?

The placenta is rich with mesenchymal stem cells. These stem cells have valuable growth elements, which are potentially effective when it comes to anti-aging, limiting neural degeneration, and more.

Why bank cord tissue?

The tissue of a baby's umbilical cord is filled with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Umbilical cord tissue stem cells are the subject of clinical research looking at treatments for lung disease, Alzheimer's, Autism, heart disease, hair loss, and more. In the case of personal injury or physical ailments, these can potentially be extremely helpful.

Why bank cord blood?

The umbilical cord is rich with powerful stem cells - hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to be precise. Umbilical cord blood stem cells are FDA-approved to treat cancers, blood disorders, immune disorders, and metabolic disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, leukemia, and sickle cell anemia.
