*Coming in 2021
Each year, millions of people in the United States are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses or plagued with chronic pain. Placental-derived tissue factors (PDTF’s) like exosomes, Wharton’s jelly, umbilical cord blood and tissue can assist in rebuilding a healthy immune system damaged by disease or the body’s own wear and tear. PDTF’s 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, allows you to secure the future of the banker’s health.
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.
