MiracleCord® FAQs

Choosing MiracleCord means your family will receive superior quality and exceptional value.

 

AXP is a registered trademark of ThermoGenesis Corp.

 

Why doesn't MiracleCord offer placenta tissue banking?

No reputable cord blood banks offer placenta tissue banking.

This is because the stem cells derived from the placenta tissue (mesenchymal stem cells, also known as MSC's) are identical to those that come from cord tissue.

MSC's from cord tissue can be expanded by thousands of times, providing a virtually unlimited supply of these stem cells, therefore placental tissue banking provides no additional benefit whatsoever.

Does MiracleCord use a direct medical courier service?

Yes. MiracleCord only uses a direct medical courier service to transport your baby's cord blood and cord tissue.

Our medical courier partner will not transfer custody of your baby's specimens to a commercial shipping carrier such as UPS or FedEx.

Each unit is carefully transported from your hospital room to our laboratory in a temperature-controlled environment by experts trained in the handling of biological tissue.

MiracleCord includes direct medical courier service with every plan, at no additional cost to you.

How much time will it take for my baby's cord blood to get to the lab?

MiracleCord has the unique ability to begin processing umbilical cord blood and cord tissue specimens within 12 hours after collection1, which ensures the highest margin of stem cell viability.

1 MiracleCord’s average time of 12 hours from collection to processing was calculated using a date range of 02/25/09 to 10/19/13. Our ability to process cord blood specimens within an average time of 12 hours of collection is subject to certain conditions beyond our control.
