Storing your baby's Cord Blood

Cordlife will store your baby's cord blood in a US FDA-approved cryogenic storage pouch made of a special material that is specifically designed to withstand cryogenic temperatures.

The pouch has two main segments (20% and 80%) that are attached integrally, and two test segments that are also integrally attached.

The integral segments allow for additional testing on the associated unit to ensure that no samples are mixed up and that the cord blood remains viable. These tests are typically performed prior to a transplant.

Having dual integrated segments addresses the possibility of future stem cell expansion. This means that when stem cell expansion is available commercially, you will be able to withdraw a portion of the stem cells for expansion while keeping the remainder in storage.

Storage of your baby’s Cord Blood

Your baby’s cord blood is stored in vacuum insulated cryogenic storage tanks which are designed to remain at optimal cryogenic temperature of below -150°C for cell storage over long periods.

Cordlife uses MVE Anti-contamination Vapour-phase Liquid Nitrogen Storage System for long-term stem cell cryopreservation.

Vapour-phase storage is preferred over liquid-phase storage as it eliminates the chance of cross contamination between cord blood units as compared with those stored in liquid nitrogen.

The MVE Anti-contamination Vapour-phase Liquid Nitrogen Storage System operates perfectly, even without electrical supply, and is 100% reliable and failsafe with no chance of robotic malfunction. Unlike other storage systems available in the market today, our tanks have never been recalled by the U.S. FDA or the manufacturer.

Over 99% of private cord blood banks also use only vapour-phase freezers. Presently, the majority of stem cell transplantations used cord blood units stored in vapour freezers.
