This paper analyses the current problems of public and private banks, and gives two hybrid models which facilitate the cell exchange and allocate resource more efficiently. One is the 'public and private combination' model, and the other is the 'donatable family banking' model. It analyzes these models in terms of cell exchange, quality and financial consideration. This paper provides an alternative perspective on how the cord blood industry can cooperate with stem cell science.
