Cord blood is collected because it contains stem cells, including hematopoietic cells, which can be used to treat hematopoietic and genetic disorders. One unit of cord blood generally lacks stem cells in a quantity sufficient to treat an adult patient. The placenta is a much better source of stem cells since it contains up to ten times more than cord blood.

Well, the question has nothing to do with internet services in the least. That said, cord banking is needed for the same reason organ donations are needed and blood is need by the Red Cross. Cord blood, if matched with the patient\'s blood, is useful in transplants and in medical emergency situations. It is "frozen" for storage after being assessed for undesired contaminants (i. e. is disease free).
