Once you have decided to use CariCord for collection and banking of your child’s umbilical cord blood, the first step is to enroll in the program. This can be done over the phone or online at www.caricord.com. To enroll over the phone, give us a call at 866-793-3880.
Once you are enrolled in our private cord blood banking program, we will ship a collection kit to your home. Standard UPS ground shipping is available at no charge, but we can also ship your kit overnight When you go to deliver your baby, make sure to take the collection kit with you to the hospital. At birth, your doctor will perform the collection and return the kit to you.
Once you are home with the kit, call 844-227-4267 to schedule a collection of the umbilical cord blood kit. A medical courier will pick up the kit within a few hours. They will ensure that the kit gets delivered to our laboratory for processing and storage in our world-class cord blood bank, located on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, located in the Denver Metro area.
We have a variety of cord blood banking plans, designed to fit your specific needs. You can choose to store your child’s cells in our state-of-the-art cord blood bank on a year to year basis, or purchase discounted prepaid storage plans in 10, 15, or 20 year increments.
