Cord Blood Market: The 4 key metrics

For those managing a cord blood bank or investing in the cord blood market, the market can initially appear technical and confusing. However, there are four key metrics to assess. These metrics are:

1.Hematopoietic Stem Cells Transplant Rates  – Determine the number of hematopoietic stem cell transplants occurring per year and quantify year-over-year changes.

2.Rates of Cord Blood Utilization – Determine the percentage of hematopoietic stem cell transplants (from all sources) contributed by cord blood stem cells.

3.Frequency of Cord Blood Stem Cell Transplant, Relative to Other Alternatives – Identify the frequency at which cord blood stem cell transplants are performed, relative to the other common stem cell transplant alternatives.

4.Rates for Cord Blood Banking Awareness – Quantify existing levels of market participating and the potential for future market expansion.

To help with this, Total Biopharm have produced a useful infographic that can be accessed here.
