SG Meditech Pte Ltd is a Singapore-based medical device company that has spent the past 10 years in research and development in the field of cord blood collection.
Lack of innovation in cord blood collection devices has limited the amount of stem cells that can be collected and this has been the main challenge faced by transplant physicians. This limitation in stem cell number count is further exacerbated by the practice of delayed cord clamping.
To revolutionize umbilical cord blood collection by increasing stem cell yields for better therapeutic outcomes.
