CorCell

CorCell was a subsidiary of Cord Blood America Inc. (CBAI) and is located in Las Vegas. In addition to cord blood banking, the company offered cord tissue banking, which increases the amount of stem cells collected during processing. Cord Blood America Inc. was acquired by Califronia Cryobank, and CorCell became a part of its FamilyCord brand. (California Cryobank and Cord Blood Registry were simultaneously acquired by an investment firm later that year, and FamilyCord and CBR merged under the Cord Blood Registry brand.)
