When it comes to stem cell transplants, more is better. The rate of transplant success increases when the doctor has a higher number of stem cells available to use in treatments. This applies to transplants performed with blood from a relative or unrelated donor or from a person’s own stem cells. The greater the number of cord blood stem cells available is also important if the treatment is performed after the child is grown, as the larger the body, the more cells that are needed for a successful transplant.

How can you ensure that you will get the maximum number of stem cells when you have your baby’s cord blood collected? For starters, by choosing CariCord, you will be receiving a collection kit that contains a sterile gravity collection bag that has the ability to preserve the maximum number of cells possible because of its design and the anticoagulant it contains. Our closed bag system minimizes the risk of contamination and is the preferred method of physicians. Our kits and shipping containers are temperature controlled which helps to preserve your baby’s cord blood during shipment.

(Once the cord blood has been collected, it must arrive at our processing facility within 48 hours to ensure the highest quality cell yield possible.)

Also, the methods in which CariCord processes your cord blood once it arrives at our facility, as well as the manner in which it is stored and monitored, ensures that the highest possible number of stem cells will be available to you and your family when, and if, you ever need to access your cord blood in the future.

CariCord cord blood is processed in the very same laboratory, as the FDA licensed publicly donated units. CariCord also uses the same processing, materials and lab technicians to process the cord blood units. CariCord is the first and only private bank to elevate their standards, to those of our FDA Licensed public bank.
