Parent's Guide partners with FACT-NetCord

2014-06-03

Parent's Guide to Cord Blood Foundation now displays a worldwide searchable map of cord blood banks that have FACT-NetCord accreditation. Many members of the cord blood industry consider FACT-NetCord to be the gold standard of accreditation, for both public and private banks.

The FACT-NetCord accreditation is end-to-end, covering every aspect of cord blood handling from the moment of collection at birth, through the laboratory where the cord blood is processed to store stem cells, and ending with patient care at hospitals where the cord blood is used for therapy.

FACT is the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy, formed by medical doctors who perform stem cell transplants. Since 2004 they have partnered with the International NetCord Foundation, a consortium of the world's leading public cord blood banks.
