Fast Facts

  • It has stored cord blood for more than 300 families who have used their stem cells in treatment.
  • CBR currently participates in 5 FDA-regulated clinical trials.

Collection, Transport, and Storage

Cord Blood Registry uses the anticoagulant dry heparin, opposed to citrate-based anti-cagulants like most of the industry. Citrate-based anticoagulants stand out for being recommended by the FDA.

CBR uses the AutoExpress (AXP) automated processing method. AXP reduces the chance of human error and provides consistent results in the reduction of certain blood components. It also provides quick and accurate data tracking. Cord Blood Registry is the only cord blood bank to have adopted the AXP processing method.
