Each year, millions of people in the United States are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses or plagued with chronic pain. Placental Derived Tissue Factors have been used in the treatment of nearly 80 different diseases. Therefore, the decision to bank your baby’s cord blood, or your own blood, opens up future generative healthcare possibilities for you and your loved one’s health.
Why Bank your Newborn’s Birth Tissue with EUCYT?
EUCYT is the first affordable all-in-one service for storing your baby’s placenta, cord tissue and cord blood allowing you the opportunity to prepare for the unexpected. Our stem-cell collection process minimizes the risk of contamination from collection all the way through storage of your cord tissue and cord blood.
When you store with EUCYT you can choose to store the tissue as is or create any number of useful products such as Wharton’s Jelly products, stem-cell patches, umbilical-cord blood, exosomes, platelets plasma, and more. Our process provides the opportunity to use the banked PDTF’s up to 10 times!
The process of collecting cord blood is painless and safe for both the mother and baby. It requires three-to-five minutes to collect and does not interfere with bonding time between the mother and baby. Once the cord blood is collected, it is tested in our laboratory to ensure all quality standards are met. We then assess the total volume collected and the concentration of stem cells and provide you with a Certificate of Analysis. The PDTF’s are then cryofrozen until they are needed.
Adult Stem Cell Banking
As the body ages, the viability of your stem cells decrease year-on-year. At EUCYT, we recognize the importance of providing people an opportunity to store their stem cells today and provide protection for their future! Our adult banking program using our PleXOcyt autologous stem-cell aspiration systems takes 15 minutes. Your blood can be processed into any of our liquid products and cryofrozen for future use.

Private Cord Donation
Thousands of critically ill patients with blood diseases are in urgent need of a life-saving transplant. Umbilical cord blood, which is typically thrown away, is rich with the blood-forming cells that can give patients hope for a cure. Donating your baby’s cord blood to a public cord blood bank can help patients get the transplants they need.
EUCYT maintains the highest safety and quality-assurance standards for the collection and processing of donated birth tissue at our lab.
- The cord blood is collected from the umbilical cord and placenta after a healthy, full-term delivery.
- Donors are evaluated for communicable diseases and screened for medical and social risk factors.
- Donors must be negative or non-reactive for: HIV 1 & 2, Hepatitis B and C, Syphilis, HTLV, and the West Nile and Zika viruses, as well as bacterial and fungal contamination.
- Testing is performed by a CLIA-registered lab using Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved testing kits and procedures.
Private Stem Cell Banking
With all of the amazing scientific breakthroughs using stem cells, no expectant mother should ever throw away precious cord blood. Stem cells are currently being investigated to treat several conditions such as cancers as well as brain and spinal cord injuries just to name a few. Our Private Cord Banking Division will work with you to set up an account so you can safely store your cord blood for future use.
