We operate to the highest standards in the industry.  As both a public and private cord blood bank, we have released more stem cells for transplant, clinical trials, and research than any private cord blood bank¹.  Knowing how important each unit is for the outcome of patients and the future of medicine, we take our obligations for Quality Control seriously.
