SIMPLE 5 STEP PROCESS
Step 1 | Getting Started
Getting started with Maze is easy. Simply choose a plan that’s right for your family. Then, enroll online. Our Cord Blood & Tissue Collection Kits contain everything your physician needs to collect your baby’s cord blood & tissue. Place your collection kit in your hospital bag and bring it with you to the hospital when it’s time. Learn More
Step 2 | Collection
Once your baby has been delivered, your physician will collect your baby’s cord blood and tissue. We use the only FDA/NDA Approved Cord Blood Collection Bag. Learn More
Step 3 | Shipping
After collection, call the number on the collection kit. Our Medical Courier will pickup the kit from your hospital room and rush it to our processing partner’s lab (Vitalant), typically within 12-24 hours. Once your cord blood has arrived to the lab and started being processed, you will receive an email confirming its delivery. Learn More
Step 4 | Processing
Your baby’s cord blood will be processed using the Advanced Suspension MethodTM technology, which yields more healthy stem cells and reduces red blood cell contamination. TissueQESTM is used to process the cord tissue and produces verified results of stem cell growth prior to long-term storage. Learn More
Step 5 | Freezing and Storage
The stem cells will be preserved in a vapor nitrogen storage tank at -190º C or colder. The stoage facility is private with a secure alarm system and two backup generators. Learn More
What Happens After 20/25 Years?
Before your contract expires (either 20 or 25 years) one of our Cord Blood Specialists will contact you and give you the option to either destroy the cord blood sample or to extend your storage with one of the plans we are offering at that time. We will never destroy the cord blood sample without your signed and written consent.
Retrieving Cord Blood
No matter where you are in the world, if you need your cord blood, we can send it to you. And rest assured, cord blood that is already frozen can travel around the world without any loss of viability. Learn More
