At CariCord, one of the highest quality names in umbilical cord blood banking, we process all of our cells in a laboratory that is approved and licensed by the FDA to manufacture cord blood as a pharmaceutical drug. Currently, there are only five of these facilities that meet these high FDA standards in the world, which speaks volumes of the expertise of our cord blood bank.
Our laboratory and repository are located on the grounds of the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, which is part of the Colorado Science and Technology Park. When it is fully built out, the Colorado Science and Technology Park will include 17 million square feet of advanced healthcare facilities across 578 acres, which will be utilized for both research and the treatment of patients.
The Anschutz Medical Campus is a hub for state-of-the-art teaching, research, and clinical facilities. Home of the number one academic hospital in the country, the Medical Campus offers access to many top doctors you know and trust. Whether you are looking to expand your receive care or treatment, expand your education, access research resources, or participate in community education programs to increase your health, you can do it all on the grounds of the Anschutz Medical Campus, the nation’s newest health sciences city.
While the Medical Campus was being designed, the idea of collaboration was at the forefront, in order to promote research that will ultimately improve care. “The campus articulates a big idea - the integration of all aspects of an academic medical center on one campus,” says Brian M. Freed, Ph.D., Professor of Medicine and Immunology.
As you can see, CariCord has access to some of the most advanced healthcare facilities in the nation, which is critical in the field of umbilical cord blood banking. Directly adjacent to our laboratory is the Children’s Hospital of Colorado, which ranks in the top ten children’s hospitals in the nation. The Veterans Hospital is also located close by for easy access. This great location is just one of the many reasons why you should choose CariCord as your child’s cord blood bank.
