What Is Cord Blood   The blood is normally collected within fifteen minutes of delivery from the placenta or severed » umbilical cord of the child.

If a client lives in an international location accommodations are made to ensure delivery of the sample to the laboratory within thirty-six hours of collection. The laboratory in Tucson, Arizona is state-of-the-art and overseen by one of the world’s experts on cord blood system cell banking. A client’s sample on arrival is isolated from others in vapour-phase cryogenic isolation during processing and testing.   The sample is also tested for contaminants before and after processing to ensure that it remains clean during its stay in the laboratory. After being screened, the blood is stored in liquid nitrogen tanks that are tested every month for contamination. In order to ensure that samples are not mixed up, Cord Blood Registry employs a triple identification system. In this system, each client is assigned a unique bar-code that is associated with the collection kit, paperwork and sample. The bar-codes are secured in protective layers to guarantee that they never fall off. In addition to this, a client identification label is permanently attached to every associated vial and the samples are stored in locations that are recorded precisely in a computer system.   If or when the stored stem cells are required, Cord Blood Registry makes arrangements to send them safely and quickly to the client’s hospital. Thus far, Cord Blood Registry has provided one hundred and forty-four samples for transplant usage.   Enrolling with Cord Blood Registry can be done online or over the phone. It is recommended that clients enrol in at least in the second trimester of pregnancy. Once enrolling is complete, the collection kit is delivered to the clients. The total first-year fee is estimated at $2195.00 for cord blood banking and $2915.00 for cord blood banking and cord tissue banking. Payment plans spanning six to forty-eight months are offered to cover these costs. Cord Blood Registry Headlines Photo Courtesy Seattle Children's Hospital -NOT FOR SALE - PNW Local News
