The decision to collect and store your child’s umbilical cord blood using CariCord’s family cord blood services may be tough to make, when it comes to the financial investment, but expecting parents can be assured that it is a sound investment in their child’s future. This is especially true if there is a history of disease in your family, particularly a disease that cord blood can treat. Those who wonder, “Why should I save baby cord blood?” are often surprised to find out that cord blood stem cells can be used to treat more than 80 diseases.

When considering cord blood pricing, expecting parents should take quality and security into consideration, rather than cost alone. We strive to make our family cord blood services as affordable as possible, while still maintaining a staunch commitment to quality. When you choose CariCord, you receive one of the highest grades of processing available for your child’s cord blood. We process on a pharmaceutical level, in a Class 10,000 clean room, within a FDA-certified laboratory. Your child’s stem cells will be stored in the same repository as the FDA-licensed public cord blood units of the University of Colorado Cord Blood Bank. These reasons are why many parents consider us to be the best cord blood bank available.

One of the reasons why cord blood banking is such a critical investment in your child’s future is the fact that the stem cells found in the blood of a newborn’s umbilical cord can only be collected at the birth of a child. If parents do not opt for baby cord blood banking, their child’s valuable cells will be discarded as medical waste. It is true that a decision you make before your child is born could potentially be a life-saving decision down the road.

In addition to cord blood banking, CariCord also offers cord tissue banking. Well there are not as many immediate cord tissue benefits, research is underway to determine approved human uses for cord tissue. Hopefully, at some point, there will be as many cord tissue banking benefits as there are for cord blood.
