If I ever need the cord blood or cord tissue from your cord blood storage bank, how do I get it back?

Posted by Martin Smithmyer

Retrieving a cord blood or cord tissue sample from storage is very straight-forward process. You would simply complete a medical release form and the cells and medical information are then transferred to whatever facility that is doing the stem cell transplant. The cells will be transported to the transplant facility using a dry-shipper, which is a tank that enables the cells to remain around -196 degrees during transport. The transplanting facility will thaw the cells using standard medical best practices and prepare them for transplant.

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.
