AboutThis mail-in donation program does require advance registration, but it can take place after 35 weeks and almost up to the time of birth, so long as the application is processed in time. The donated cord blood is used in animals for disease research. Parents can earmark their cord blood to be used towards a particular Saneron CCEL research program that they wish to support.
Saneron CCEL Therapeutics Inc. is a biotechnology R&D company that conducts research in partnership with the University of South Florida (USF). Their research programs are testing cord blood stem cells in animals for application to neurological and cardiac therapy. Their research does not require extensive advance screening of donors, because cells from the cord blood will not be infused into humans.
