About Me

I am a former employee of Company X, before you dismiss me as a disgruntled employeed who got fired, let me tell you that I resigned from Company X because I couldn’t stand all the lies and non-sense that go on then (and now). I am also a customer of Company X, storing my baby’s cord blood with them. I am now working for a government-related biotech agency as an administrator. My motive of doing this is to publicize all the worrying activities of my former employer. You may not trust me completely, but I will put down sources of info that you can always verify independently. I am doing this anonymously for obvious reasons, given the horrible things that I have seen my two former lady-bosses are capable of.

    Do u not think tht u saying tht this paticular company is greedy cz they store stemcells tht r considered ciontaminated is rong?I would much rathersuffer a mild disease than to die of cancer!!R u discriminating against those ppl whu has diseases like hepatitis??

  • 2. MN  |  August 2, 2007 at 2:29 pm

    xylmel i think either way u will die. Either u die slowly from cancer or injected with Hb virus contaminated cord blood stem cells, while u do not have any immune defence system. The difference in latter is called a MURDER!

    Hepatitis B is very infectious & may lead to liver cancer if infected. My father & uncle died of liver cancer due to Hepatitis B. There is a higher risk of contamination if the blood is to be stored in the same tank with others. The sample should be stored separately. Why put other’s at risk?

  • 4. MN  |  August 7, 2007 at 10:29 am

    It’s not a matter of storing separately but a matter that the contaminated stem cells can never be used at all. If so, why store?

  • 5. ABCD  |  August 13, 2007 at 9:08 am

    I think tht it’s one choice whether or not he or she would want to store their stemcells should d cells b contaminated..At least u get to live longer..I don’t reali c d problem with tht..would one not want to spend more time living..considering one is still at a young age??I thiknk tht this company is providing a choice…and not reali forcing vryone to take the same road..Y question other people’s choice..I think we r not in the position to question another’s choice

  • 6. ABCD  |  August 13, 2007 at 9:11 am

    btw MN..the cells can stil b used if they r jz infected with hepi…itz one’s choice..and how sure r u tht they do not indeed keep them seperately KM??I actually think tht they do infact do so

  • 7. MN  |  August 13, 2007 at 1:42 pm

    ABCD u sounds as simple as ur name. If everyone thinks like u then cord blood bank should also store Hep C, syphillis, bacterial and fungus infected blood!! After all leukemia is more deadly than these infections isn’t it?! If u r speaking on behalf of Company X, obviously they also store all these contaminated blood since they always gave customer a choice and not advising them professionally.

  • 8. ABCD  |  August 13, 2007 at 2:03 pm

    I have no connection whatsoever with this company..I jz think probably one is giving a bad impression of this company..I stired my baby’s blood cells and I’m in fact quite happy with their service..at least they provide information regarding viles..unlike d rest.

  • 9. CDEF  |  August 13, 2007 at 2:50 pm

    well ABCD,all i can say is u did not do much research on cord blood banking…if u did more research u would notice tat all internationally acreadited cord blood bank DO NOT TAKE IN infectious sample…n if u read AABB website,its stated clearly about cross contamination….so dun be so naive…just because u did a “mistake” and keep on denying to make urself feel better…just accept the fact..”u are conned”!

  • 10. Debbie  |  August 13, 2007 at 3:40 pm

    ABCD… Good. Go ahead and continue storing with them. If you’re expecting more children, guess what, store ALL with them. I don’t give a damn if you don’t believe what we said here. If you love them so much… join them in their sales team. And when you eventually understand what we have said here, you can always come back =).

  • 11. xyz  |  August 14, 2007 at 12:48 am

    d starking tru abt SL vials is tat v do not process n xtract d MNC (ie stem cell). V juz freeze d cord blood tat is Y v can charge only RM800 d cheapest in d world!! I m juz fed up coz of all LIES here. They claim vials only 63% viability but take a look at this site (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-bch1U7pTE) n judge 4 yourself. I juz dont care anymore…make my money here and sayonara!!

  • 12. sad mum  |  August 14, 2007 at 10:54 am

    ABCD, you give them a ” choice ” to store containmated blood because you do not educate and inform the parents. You should not giving people false hope and ” open ” decision. By the way, is also too late for company X is tell people is a mistake to store containmated blood. I would advise all parents to find out more from the net before making any judgement. ABCD, the baby cordblood is once in a life time. We can never get it anymore but money can earn from proper channel. Thank you.

  • 13. saint  |  August 15, 2007 at 3:49 am

    xyz, can you elaborate on that account about the vials for RM800 by SL. I dont quite understand…

    And what all LIES do you mean?

    Are you an ex-staff or current staff of this company?

  • 14. Joana  |  August 15, 2007 at 3:54 am

    xyz, can you secretly film how you store cord blood into vias without processing and post it on youtube. Expose the lies of these people, they are so sick.

  • 15. unknown  |  August 15, 2007 at 10:06 am

    ya man..how can u store red blood cell together?the whole cells will burst under low temperature! this is really SHIT man!if im the customer i will sue them man!

  • 16. Angelina  |  August 15, 2007 at 12:27 pm

    then y hasn’t ANYONE sued them yet?maybe these are perpetually ALL LIES!!That’s y..noone can actually TAKE ACTION!!!

  • 17. unknown  |  August 15, 2007 at 2:52 pm

    i cant seem to add this comment at the “10 reasons” tab..maybe stemlie ppl trying to crash this blog coz they are chickens..
    anyways,debbie…”anabelle” ar,the cousin of the lady boss who told u to treat every sample like your own…
    anyway,i agree with u..one of the reason im so pist off is because of double standards they are giving..those not so rich one they cant be bothered..but those VIP,brushing their shoes like mad…n u call urself a scientist?hello!?
    and to the docs out there who are recommending stemlie to their patients just because you are treated well or receiving “commission” from them…u gotta watch ur back carefully..now tat u knw tat stemlie is taking in infected samples tat may possibly contaminate other samples,ur accountable of every recommendation u make..if one day ur patient need to retrieve her baby’s stem cells and discovered tat its infected due to cross-contamination,ur patient can actually point back their finger to u because u were the one who recomended them to choose stemlie…

  • 18. unknown  |  August 15, 2007 at 2:53 pm

    eh angelina,no one on earth will keep on protecting stemlie’s back la…ur their staff rite!!since u guys feel ur so “righteous”, admit it la…tell us ur real name..n tat ur their staff…chickens…

  • 19. xyz  |  August 16, 2007 at 4:20 am

    Saint ur question too direct 2 jeopardise my job. Joana i m not spy here n 4 tat money i get not worth d risk. To unknown how would d innocent customer know (Juz like d possible X-contamination) ?? Cheap, volume, more publicity n more S class r all tat matter here!!

  • 20. Joana  |  August 16, 2007 at 4:52 am

    xyz, how many S class they have now ? You got it spot on, it is all that matters to them!

    I just called up and talked to a lab staff, he said they store MNC in vials. Lying again ?

  • 21. Angelina  |  August 16, 2007 at 9:00 am

    reali..c’mon..sue them then..I am not working i stemlie beieve it or not..Y don’t u, unknown, just admit it then that ur some x saff who got FIRED!!!say ur name la..That’s for insulting ppl whom u dunno and assume itz sum1 u noe…

  • 22. angelina  |  August 17, 2007 at 3:31 pm

    hey angelina..go get al life!!fired?!ask stemlie to show u how many ppl actually the “fire”!
    and why not u urself say who u really are instead of pointing fingers to others…
    the truth will prevail soon..u think MOH is dumb ar?

  • 23. Sincere Heart  |  August 19, 2007 at 5:39 pm

    To all current Stemlie’s staffs, stop fighting!!! do your work with sincere heart. If you think u r only earn a living and can follow all the instructions given by the two ladies boss regardless is right or wrong then go ahead orelse just leave. Don’t protect the company by providing false information. Soon or later the truth will prevail.
    To all ex staffs, thanks so much for all the information! At least u guys help the public to know better. For me, too sad to tell, I am Stemlie’s customer too. Delivered last year. I plan to have second baby but will never consider to store with Stemlie anymore regardless they store HEP’s cord blood in the same tank or not. Not to say I don give Hep’s group a chance to live longer but the whole world is not agreed! By all mean, Stemlie shouln’t store!!!!! It’s really unfair to those healthy cord blood.
    To ABCD, cross your fingers that your baby’s precious cord blood not contaminated. What so special services that Stemlie provided to you? Let me know and I will call up the Sales people to ask for it? Don’t u felt bad when you read all the secret information? Why r u so happy with Stemlie?
    To Angelina, If you think all the ex staff tried to talk bad about Stemlie just because they got fired, Why no one talk bad about the other two companies? I believe you have the answer.

  • 24. Zzzz  |  August 19, 2007 at 5:49 pm

    Seemed like all of you are fighting here, some pointed that the ex staff being “fired” member is here trying to revenge their ex company, however, some even pointed that those who are “currently” working for them is trying to protect their own company BLINDLY.

    Try to think it in a more objective way!!!

    Not all the parents is well educated with medical field. Their intention to reveal the truth is not trying to “hit” SL.

    Though expectant parents have to be well educated, the choices of storing or not storing is still belong to THEM. Letting them to know how is actually happenning in SL, It is nothing wrong if parents still want to store SL, because they will be the one who reap the benefits and bear the consequences finally.

    AABB accreditation did mention that cord blood storing sample have to be FREE from any samples.However Hep B carrier mother doesnt mean that the child will 100% have Hep B as well, just higher chances of getting it.

    SL processed in a closed system manner, (bags form) it is true that the chances of cross contamination is low.( but NOT 0%).However, storing HEp B is a different tank in order to avoid contaminate other healthy sample is a wise way.

    But, another question raises up?
    How do you ensure that they are not storing hep B sample with healthy sample?
    And, how do you ensure that Hep B mother carrier’s babies is 100% FREE from any disease even though the result showed negative. This is because it is just the concentration of the virus is yet reached a certain level which showed positive, it doesnt mean that 100% NO disease.

    Besides, nothing wrong to store Hep B sample. Doctor of course would prefer to use a clean and healthy sample, if there is no alternatives, when a patient who is sick badly and cant wait any longer for matching cord blood or bone marrow samples, hep B sample is the last choice they will choose.Using
    a Hep B sample to treat a patient will put a risk for the patient for getting liver disease in the future.

    Everything has it good and bad side. The most important thing is don’t attempt to exploit consumers ignorance in this area to gain “something”. This is unethical.

  • 25. MN  |  August 20, 2007 at 9:06 am

    Zzz, u sounded v defensive over Co. X policy even though the world knows tat it is wrong. As far as I know there is no other cord blood bank which chooses to systematically store Hep B (incl CordXXXX in S’pore). The problem is that Co.X actually chooses to store Hep B even knowing that the mother is a Hep B antigen positive carrier. If Co. X does not do any maternal blood test it also means that Co.X may also be storing HIV, Syphillis, Hep C, HTLV (only virus known to cause Leukemia) without realising it. As someone pointed out that the MOH has refused Co.X to claim anything regarding Stem Cell Therapeutics in banners, posters, other adverts etc… then how can Co.X claim to be a Stem Cell Specialist at all??? U mean they have been telling LIES all this while??

  • 26. Zzz  |  August 27, 2007 at 3:37 pm

    Sorry MN, I am not sides SL for anything, please read my points carefully, i didnt say that “storing a HEp B sample” is correct, I said “Hep B carrier mother doesnt mean the child will be 100% having HEp B as well”.I am not sure whether SL is storing other infectious disease sample. For me, taking maternal blood is necessary for cord blood processing. Whether SL is telling LIES all the while, you yourself! consumer , doctors, everyone have their own eyes to observe themselves, we dont need other people come and tell them, what is true and vice versa.

    And, i am 100% agree with the comment made my Pioneer.

  • 27. Dr. Majid  |  August 28, 2007 at 3:26 pm

    Yes..the truth will prevail..N i believe all posted here will b proven wrong..honestly..condemning sum1 elses company..GET A LIFE!!

  • 28. Dr. Majid  |  August 28, 2007 at 3:28 pm

    Really..Just cz Su,1 didn’t start a blog insulting another company does not mean the other companies are perfect..Mayb I should start one huh..revealing all the other companies CRAP…but…honestly.I have a life..and don’t intend on insulting another companied..Like u all no life ppl

  • 29. MN  |  August 29, 2007 at 9:31 am

    Y is Dr. Majid so mad abt us just giving the truth ??!! If wat he said is true abt us having no life then Y is he in this blog site??

  • 30. mydaughter  |  August 29, 2007 at 2:36 pm

    that is Dr Shilar Majid fm the co.X, i guess.

    very much wanting to insult or confuse the crowd

  • 31. TNC  |  September 7, 2007 at 11:31 am

    Well i couldn’t agree more wif MN’s posting (No 25). How can they claim they are the specialist all these while and at the same time storing one of the most contagious viruses? Also proven that SL were unethical when MOH raided their booth and demanded them to remove all advertisings on buses and billboards. What more do you need to prove with all these facts to speak for themselves?

  • 32. ABCD  |  September 15, 2007 at 1:35 pm

    TNC…FYI..MOH didn’t RAID their booth at both the exhibitions..I think u were provided with FALSE information…They weren’t asked to remove everything..JUST change certain words which All componies dealing with stemcells were required to do so…Jz tht during the exhibition both Company C’s pretended not to noe!!!!!!
