This exclusive service is included with every plan at no additional cost.
Many cord blood banks that advertise the use of a “medical courier service” will in fact use a medical courier to pick up your baby’s specimens, but they are then dropped off at a nearby FedEx® or UPS® location. The transport to the lab is then handled by one of these conventional shipping carriers.
Conventional shipping carriers such as FedEx and UPS are not temperature-controlled and could delay processing of your baby’s cord blood and cord tissue by 48 hours or more. Both factors can result in a significant loss of stem cell viability. Furthermore, conventional shipping companies do not differentiate human tissue from their other package delivery services, and do not provide the specialized care that is critical for the transport of biological materials.

MiracleCord's direct medical courier service never outsources the transport of your baby's cord blood and cord tissue to conventional shipping carriers such as FedEx or UPS. This ensures that your baby's stem cells will be quickly transported to our laboratory in a temperature-controlled environment and processed without delay.
