Once you receive the kit after collection, check to make sure everything has been placed back into the kit: cord blood bag, cord tissue cup, maternal blood tubes, and completed documents. Then, seal the kit with the provided label.
Call our medical courier at the number provided on the kit within two hours of collection. Your call will dispatch our medical courier for post-delivery hospital bed-side pickup, and rush your collection kit to our processing lab. Your baby’s stem cells are viable for up to 72 hours, so refrigeration or freezing is not necessary at this point. Our medical courier expedites shipping so the blood arrives at our lab within 24 hours.
No matter where you’re located in the U.S., we can assure you that your cord blood will arrive at our processing facility in a timely manner with no issue.
