Umbilical cord blood (UCB) is an increasingly important and rich source of stem cells. These cells can be used for the treatment of many deadly diseases, including cancers, immune and genetic disorders. It also provides a readily available source of stem cells for transplantation purposes. In this paper, we review the literature published that reflects the designs of UCB collection apparatus in order to obtain stem cells.
