Reliable Cord Blood Storage in the Worcester, MA Area
At New England Cord Blood Bank, we offer state-of-the-art facilities and a caring staff to help ensure that your baby’s cord blood is adequately processed, stored, and preserved. This expertise is of utmost importance because the stem cells found in cord blood can be used to treat various diseases.
Cord Blood Collection
Collecting cord blood is easy and painless for you and your new baby. To collect the blood, the umbilical cord is clamped and cut. The blood is extracted from the umbilical cord and stored in a bag, finishing the process. It usually takes no more than 10 minutes. Talk with your health care provider about maximizing the cord blood collection process.
Maximum Stem Cell Recovery with Sepax 2
We use the Sepax 2 automated processing system to process cord blood and ensure maximum stem cell recovery. Using this automated processing system retrieves the greatest number of stem cells from the cord blood sample, resulting in up to a 99% cell recovery rate—one of the highest in the industry.
Secure Cryogenic Storage
Once your stem cells are processed and prepared for storage, they are moved to our cryogenic storage facility. The foundation of our company is rooted in securely storing human cells and tissue. As a service our company was founded on, it continues to be of the utmost importance today.
NECBB’s cryogenic facilities are specially designed to ensure maximum security and protection. Our storage containers can maintain their internal temperatures within 1 degree for up to 30 days in case of a power failure. We are protected from power outages by an on-site electric generator system.
Additionally, our facility includes an on-site bulk liquid nitrogen storage tank, reducing the need for costly deliveries and the handling of smaller refill containers. Storing your cord blood with NECBB guarantees that it will be safe and available whenever you may need it.
