This is a new trend.
A few friends that I know has taken the trouble of storing their baby's cord blood stem cell in Cordlife Singapore, as a future health insurance. And now the 'leading cord blood bank in the region' together with Indonesia's Pt Kalbe Farma has set up Pt Cordlife Indonesia, as announced last Saturday (14/10). The cord bank is expected to be fully operated by January 2007.

Quoted from Kompas (16/10), the cost for the initial collection of the cell is about SGD$ 1.400, and the yearly storage fee is about SGD$ 250.
