Facility & Certifications



Our Facility

We have 6 state of the art cryo-preservation storage tanks, which are capable of maintaining 40,000 umbilical cord blood stem cell units. Using liquid nitrogen vapors, these tanks are continuously monitored both visually and electronically to ensure the temperature is maintained at or below -150°C., at all times.

We have an extensive disaster recovery plan in place that includes an on-site generator to maintain electrical power and a liquid nitrogen storage tank capable of maintaining a 7-day supply to our storage units.  We are a priority facility for the local power company when it comes to power restoration.  It is important to note that the liquid nitrogen tanks themselves do not require electrical power to maintain safe storage of the cord blood units.

We have the capacity to process 24 cord blood units, simultaneously. Our facility has 450 sq. ft., designated as ISO-7 (Class 10,000) laboratory space and 120 sq. ft. ISO-6 (Class 1000) research space allowing expansion of our alternative stem cell source process development programs.

Every step from enrollment to cryopreservation of a cord blood stem cell unit is part of Cord For Life® Quality Management System. Our procedures are specifically designed to ensure that quality standards are consistently being achieved throughout the production process.

Our Total Quality Management (TQM) protocol functions on the concept that the quality of products and processes is the responsibility of everyone who is involved in the products or services offered at Cord For Life®.

Stem cells perform three important functions:  1.  They renew themselves; 2. Differentiate into other cells; and 3. Renew other cells. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) can restore the immune system following  chemotherapy or radiation for leukemia, lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases. Historically, HSCs have only been available from bone marrow and peripheral blood transplants.  As cord […]
