How Does Cord Blood Banking Work?


Hello, Baby!

Your baby is born with the umbilical cord attached, the cord will be clamped and cut so the baby can be cleaned and cared for.



Your doctor or midwife draws cord blood from the clamped cord into a special collection bag.



When the collection kit is ready, our medical courier picks it up and expedites the delivery to our lab.


Lab Processing

Our manual testing and processing is customized to your delivery. We optimize the amount of stem cell product stored based on your specific cord blood collection.



We store the stem cells in specially designed 5-compartment bags, giving families the option of multiple therapies from a single cord blood collection.



The cord blood stem cells will be preserved in a liquid nitrogen storage tank (-196° C) inside our secure lab facility.

"We banked our daughter's cord blood, not thinking that we'd ever need it. Two and a half years later we needed it ... Since the stem cell transplant, it's been unbelievable."
