Mean MNC count in cryopreserved and fresh CB. The mean MNC concentration for cryopreserved and fresh CB was 5.14 × 109/l (range 0.96–10.00, median 4.30, SD = 3.43) and 2.68 × 109/l (range 1.24–3.62, median 2.77, SD = 0.64), respectively. The difference between cryopreserved and fresh CB was not statistically significant (P = 0.06). Bars show means and error bars show standard deviations. Abbreviations: MNC, mononuclear cells; CB, cord blood.
