Laboratory FAQs

How long has MiracleCord's laboratory been processing cord blood?

MiracleCord's state-of-the-art laboratory facilities have been processing and storing cord blood for more than 20 years.

Is MiracleCord's laboratory AABB accredited for cord blood banking?

Yes. The AABB is an international association of blood banks that sets the standards for cellular therapy, tissue transplantation and stem cell processing and storage.

Additionally, 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 cord blood ensures that they adhere to the industry's most stringent standards for processing and storing cord blood stem cells.

Are MiracleCord's laboratory facilities licensed in all of the contiguous United States?

Yes. MiracleCord's laboratory facilities are licensed in all of the lower 48 contiguous United States that require licensing.

What type of processing method does MiracleCord's laboratory use?

Our laboratory uses the advanced AXP® II automated processing system that has the proven ability to recover 99% of cells. This recovery rate is 20% higher than Sepax® and Hespan®, the processing methods used by most other cord blood banks.

How will I know that my baby's cord blood and cord tissue have been processed?

Within a few days 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.

Your MiracleCord Certificate of Storage with a comprehensive laboratory report documenting the details of your baby's cord blood and cord tissue specimens will be available for download approximately 30 days after your baby's birth.

Does MiracleCord perform all required testing on cord blood, cord tissue and maternal blood?

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.

What happens if my family needs my baby's cord blood or cord tissue for a stem cell transplant?

MiracleCord can cryogenically ship your baby's cord blood and cord tissue unit to a transplant facility anywhere in the world when it is needed.

Your baby's cord blood and cord tissue stem cells can be prepared and ready for shipment very quickly.

When your child's stem cells are needed for a transplant, please call us at 888-743-2673, and we will guide you through the process.
