Cord Blood & Cord tissue Collection

After the baby is born, cord blood will be collected into the cord blood collection bag. Your physician will then collect the umbilical cord and place it in the collection vessel for cord tissue. These steps are the same regardless of whether you have normal delivery or have a C-section.

At the Lab

Stem cells from cord blood and cord tissue samples are purified, concentrated and cryogenically preserved using computer operated controlled-rate freezing.
