MiracleCord's state-of-the-art laboratory facilities have been processing and storing cord blood for 20 years.
Yes. The AABB is a key international association of blood banks that establishes the standards of care in all aspects of blood banking and tissue transplantation. The AABB works closely with the FDA to provide technical guidance for the development of blood regulations. A lab facility that has received AABB accreditation for banking BOTH cord blood and cord tissue ensures that they adhere to the industry's most stringent standards for processing and storing cord blood and cord tissue stem cells.
Although many cord blood banks in the U.S. advertise that their lab facilities are AABB accredited, most do not have AABB accreditation for banking cord tissue. These companies have not received accreditation from the AABB for cord tissue banking because studies show that there is little chance of recovering any viable stem cells with the methods they are using for processing and storing cord tissue.
MiracleCord's laboratory facilities are 1 of just 3 cord blood banking labs in the U.S. that are AABB accredited for processing and storing BOTH cord blood and cord tissue.
Within one week of your baby's date of birth MiracleCord will send an email to you confirming your baby's stem cells have been processed and are safely stored. Approximately 8-12 weeks after your baby's date of birth, you will receive a MiracleCord Certificate of Storage with a comprehensive laboratory report documenting the details of your baby's cord blood and cord tissue specimens.
Yes. The AABB and FDA require several clinical tests to be performed on cord blood, cord tissue and maternal blood at the time of initial processing. Some cord blood banks forego critical testing procedures that may ultimately limit your family's ability to use your baby's stem cells in the future. Without these tests, the FDA may restrict your child's stem cells from being released and used for transplant.
MiracleCord performs all required testing during initial processing to ensure compliance with AABB standards and FDA guidelines.
