Family Cord Blood Banking

 

Parents can pay a private bank to store their baby’s cord blood and cord tissue so that they will have access to the stem cells in case of need. A family bank has a cord blood laboratory to provide this service. Some family banks market their services to parents in multiple countries. In the list below of family banks serving your country, the second column shows where the bank laboratory is located. The next column lists any accreditation standards that the laboratory holds. The column listing therapies tells how many units of cord blood were released from the laboratory to treat patients. Therapy numbers with NO* were for family clients, whereas therapy numbers WITH * are transplants from a public bank that shares the same laboratory as the family bank. The next two columns are prices for the first year and the long term storage fee.
