How long has your cord blood banking lab been storing cord blood?

Posted by Martin Smithmyer

We are headquartered in New York City, our laboratory is in Indianapolis, we do research and development in upstate NY and we have a fulfillment center in California. While Americord has only directly offered cord blood banking to clients since 2008, our laboratory has been around and collecting, preserving, processing and storing cord blood on behalf of other companies since 1997 and has over 35,000 cord blood units there. The lab is CLIA certified, FDA registered, AABB accredited and meets the highest standards for cord blood banking. Our Medical Director, Dr. Robert Dracker, was Executive Medical Director at ViaCord from the beginning and is considered one of the founders of the industry, and also wrote the guidelines for cord blood banking for New York State, and also sits on the FDA pediatrics advisory panel.

Americord has the best quality and follows all of the best practices for cord blood and cord tissue collection and storage, including the FDA, the AABB, state and federal guidelines and applicable licenses. We use the only commercially available FDA approved sterile exterior cord blood bag that is on the market and the fastest medical courier.
