Texas Cord Blood Bank is a division of the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center, and since 2014 is affiliated with GenCure. As of April 2015, Texas Cord Blood bank only accepts mail-in donations within the state of Texas.

Since immune types are specific to ethnic groups, the Texas Cord Blood Bank  is strategically located to collect cord blood units that reflect the rich ethnic diversity of Texas. In the past 11 years, the Texas Cord Blood Bank has been recognized nationally and internationally for innovation in the field of regenerative medicine using cord blood collected from the placenta following healthy live births.
