As a leader in the advancement of umbilical cord blood and tissue, placental tissue, and exosome banking, Americord® partners with you to collect, process, and preserve your child’s stem cells for future medical or therapeutic use. We’re here to secure the lifelong health of you and your family.

What Is Cord Blood Banking?

Cord blood is the blood remaining in your baby’s umbilical cord after he or she is born. This blood is rich with nutrients and stem cells, a type of cell that can regenerate and replace damaged cells with newer, healthier ones. Cord blood banking — also known as stem cell banking — refers to how we cryogenically preserve these cells for future medical or therapeutic use.

What Is Cord Tissue Banking?

Cord tissue is the tissue surrounding the umbilical cord’s vessels. A physician or loved one will clamp and cut this tissue at birth. Like cord blood, cord tissue is rich in nutrients and stem cells. You can cryogenically preserve a portion of your baby’s cord tissue for future medical or therapeutic use.

What Is Placental Tissue Banking?

Placental tissue is the tissue surrounding and protecting the veins that carry blood and oxygen to your baby in utero. Placental tissue is also a rich source of nutrients and regenerative stem cells that you can store for future medical use. At Americord, we preserve this tissue using our advanced Placental Tissue 2.0™ processing technique.

What Is Exosome Banking?

Exosomes are small extracellular vesicles that carry genetic and other information — including lipids, proteins, RNA, and DNA — between cells. Like cord blood and placental tissue, we can isolate and extract these regenerative powerhouses from your baby’s cord blood and cryopreserve them.

How Can You Use Your Baby’s Stem Cells?

Umbilical cord blood, cord tissue, placental tissue, and exosomes each contain different types of stem cells, including Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) and Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs). These stem cells can be used to treat several blood cancers and immune disorders that could develop later in life.

As a result, storing your child’s stem cells could offer them immediate access to over 80 FDA-approved treatment opportunities and hundreds of clinical trials, including:

Why Is Preserving Your Baby’s Stem Cells Important?

Storing your child’s stem cells will offer them the most comprehensive, cutting-edge treatment opportunities in the future. Regenerative medicine is a rapidly expanding field that creates extensive opportunities for your child to use their stored stem cells. Having access to stored stem cells can alleviate the trouble of locating a stem cell donor, securing a match, or facing incompatibility risks. Plus, your newborn’s stem cells have the potential to provide life-saving treatment for other matching family members, including siblings, parents, and grandparents.

How Does Cord Blood Banking Work?

1

Hello, Baby!

Your baby is born with the umbilical cord attached, the cord will be clamped and cut so the baby can be cleaned and cared for.
2

Collection

Your doctor or midwife draws cord blood from the clamped cord into a special collection bag.
3

Transportation

When the collection kit is ready, our medical courier picks it up and expedites the delivery to our lab.
4

Lab Processing

Our manual testing and processing is customized to your delivery. We optimize the amount of stem cell product stored based on your specific cord blood collection.
5

Storage

We store the stem cells in specially designed 5-compartment bags, giving families the option of multiple therapies from a single cord blood collection.
6

Preserving

The cord blood stem cells will be preserved in a liquid nitrogen storage tank (-196° C) inside our secure lab facility.

“In the process of my wife going to the doctor, I came across Americord. So we banked it, not thinking that we would ever need it, but two and a half years later, we needed it.”
