Although compared to some of the large cord blood banks our total number of units released for transplant is lower, that number should not be a concern. Our unit release percentage is typical of the other vendors in the industry. We are happy that not many of our clients have needed to access their cells  – it means that their families are healthy! However, rest assured that we have the experience necessary to work with any hospital or transplant facility to prepare and safely transport your cells if they are ever needed. If cells are requested for release, we follow the strictest protocols to ensure safe transportation to the designated medical facility. The key is peace of mind – our deep history and expertise in cryopreservation give our clients the confidence that their cord blood and cord tissue will be safe and ready to use if ever needed.
