About Cryobanks:

Cryobanks International is a corporation located in Altamonte Springs, FL, which is to be acquired by BioStem, Inc. (OTCBB: BTEM) The Company is a leader in the collection, processing, and banking of stem cells derived from the umbilical cord immediately after birth. The units of cord blood (CB) are processed and stored by the company for use in unrelated transplants (where the donor is a histocompatible match, but is anonymous and unrelated to the recipient) and for personal storage and use. In recent years, cord blood transplants (CBTs) have become widely recognized as a safe, effective, and in many ways preferable, alternative to bone marrow transplant (BMT). There is tremendous potential need for CBTs in the United States and worldwide. Cryobanks International is well poised to help meet that need, equipped with an inventory of over 9,700 cord blood units.
