    Stem cells are abundant in all of the body. You can find stem cells in the Basal skin layer, White blood cells, bone marrow, teeth, cheek etc... The latter is used sometimes as the location for cheek swabbing in DNA tests, since it contains stem cells, and stem cells usually are nucleated, so they have genetic material in them.

    I can't see why you would store the blood from the umbilical cord, you can just obtain blood from him. Or you could store the umbilical cord in a specialized place, for perhaps any future event where graft is necessary.

    Hope that helps.

    I would be careful storing "living" material.
    Of all the countries, this is possibly the most beautiful. All that is beautiful and can be rarely seen in
    other countries can be seen everywhere here... Here live the people who wear the cleanest clothes and prepare the
    most flavorful dishes... Of all of Godís servants, the local people are the most compassionate and merciful...
