What is Cord Blood 2.0™?

Americord® gives parents the chance to collect enough stem cells to treat children into adolescence and even adulthood. Our Cord Blood 2.0 technology has the ability to collect enough stem cells to treat a person with certain conditions up to 165 pounds. Traditional cord blood banks often collect only enough stem cells to treat a child under 65 pounds.

Industry Standard - 60ml, Americord - upt o 150ml

Collect up to twice as many stem cells as the industry standard with Cord Blood 2.0™

Industry Standard - 65lb, Americord - 165lb

More stem cells means the chance to treat larger patients.


More Stem Cells = More Options

Until now, a huge limitation of cord blood banking has been that the number of stem cells that are preserved in a typical cord blood collection are only sufficient to treat someone up to about 65 pounds. With Cord Blood 2.0™, up to twice as many stem cells can be preserved, making it possible to treat larger patients and expand treatment opportunities for smaller patients.

Why Bank?

Cord blood is an easily accessible source of stem cells that is available only when your baby is born. It remains in the umbilical cord and placenta following birth. The type of stem cells that are recovered from the cord blood are called hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). HSCs can become any of the blood cells and cellular blood components in our bodies (such as white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets, etc.).
