Americord® tests cord blood, cord tissue, and placenta tissue samples before and after processing as part of our quality control to ensure that each sample is contaminant-free on arrival and continues to be during processing in our laboratory. Our screening exceeds FDA regulations for testing and quality control.
Each client’s stem cells are stored in cryo-tanks using vapor nitrogen, which protects your family’s stem cells and eliminates the risk of cross-contamination from other samples.
Americord’s lab is CLIA Certified and located in New Jersey. We provide our clients with only the highest quality processing and most experienced laboratory professionals. You can rest assured that your stem cells are stored safely in a facility that provides constant monitoring and backup measures in place to ensure continued storage during any type of natural disaster.
The laboratory staff is made up of highly experienced health professionals and technicians who work under the guidance and expertise of our Medical Director. This ensures that Americord® delivers the cutting-edge of new cord blood advances, while guaranteeing the safety, integrity, and viability of your baby’s stem cells.
Americord® maintains strict confidentiality of all client information. All Americord® employees sign confidentiality agreements because of the sensitive nature of your family’s medical information. We are subject to government regulations (as are your caregivers and insurers) that may require disclosure of certain, limited information under certain circumstances.
