Collection, Transportation, and Storage

A collection kit is administered to expectant parents. This kit is temperature-controlled, allowing the cord blood to travel unaffected for hours. The kit is approved for both domestic and international shipments.

The kit is entirely sterile, and uses the Sepax S-100 processing system. Once the umbilical cord is placed inside the container, it remains sealed until arrival at the designated facility.

Once at the storage facility, the umbilical cord is processed, and the quality of collected stem cells is certified. After this, the cord blood is placed in a storage freezer.

Stem cells are put into cryogenic storage at -80 degrees Celsius, and final temperatures are lowered to below -150 degrees Celsius.
