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:

  • Leukemia
  • Neuroblastoma
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Heart conditions
  • Neurological disorders, including autism

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.

Hear What Our Clients Are Saying

“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.”
