Accreditations, Certifications, and Registrations


AABB Accreditation

Cordlife Philippines is proud to be accredited by AABB.

One of the first steps any expectant parents should take before deciding on the cord blood bank to rely on, is to verify that the company is accredited by a globally recognised accrediting agency in the field. Obtaining an accreditation means that the company meets or exceeds minimum standards of quality to ensure patient safety during stem cell transplant.

AABB is a symbol of quality recognised internationally for umbilical cord blood banking. Many countries and hospitals around the world are already using this accreditation as yardstick to affirm that the umbilical cord blood unit has been collected, tested, processed, and stored according to gold standards of quality before accepting the unit for transplant or infusion.

Families who stored their baby’s umbilical cord blood unit with a non-accredited cord blood bank are at risk of having the umbilical cord blood unit rejected for use. While some of these banks may quote you a lower fee, they may not be performing all the necessary clinical tests, which could render the cord blood unit unsuitable for transplantation.

When you bank your baby’s umbilical cord blood, you want the unit to be accepted for use when your family needs it the most – to save a life or to improve your loved one’s quality of life. Therefore, it is crucial to choose an accredited cord blood bank that has been assessed by independent peer experts for having the competence, reliability, operational performance, and quality management to ensure patient safety and quality of care.

Cord blood is your family’s gift of a lifetime. Only leave it to the experts.

Proven Expertise & Quality Assured

Cordlife Philippines was officially launched in February 2010 as Philippines’ first and only umbilical cord blood processing and cryopreservation facility to better serve the umbilical cord blood banking needs of the local market. It is a DOH- registered, ISO-certified, and AABB-accredited cord blood banking facility, making it the first and only in the Philippines to have acquired such prestigious status.

The local storage facility was built in accordance to global gold standards such as the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) to give Filipino families peace of mind. It operates 365 days a year and is equipped with the world’s most advanced fully-automated umbilical cord blood processing system, SEPAX, and has a storage capacity for 30,000 umbilical cord blood units. Cordlife Philippines is a subsidiary of Cordlife Group Limited, a company listed on the Singapore Exchange.

We pride ourselves on these stringent standards and guarantee that your baby's cord blood unit will be screened, processed and stored according to the strictest international quality assurance programme. Transplant physicians are more likely to accept an internationally accredited cord blood unit, compared to a unit which is not.
