PacifiCord

  • Pick Up
    Here at PacifiCord, we want to take the stress off of you and your family. That’s why when you are ready to have the cord blood picked up, we send our very own medical couriers. We pride ourselves on getting to you quickly and transporting the cord blood back to our lab fast.
  • Inspect
    Before leaving the hospital, the medical courier will checkand inspect the collection kit. They will make sure each form has been filled out.
  • Transport
    After making this type of investment, we want you to have peace of mind that your cord blood makes it safely to our lab, and will be processed in 24-hours or less.† That's why the PacifiCord associate who picks up your cord blood is also the associate who delivers it safely to our lab for processing.

    † Processing and banking cord blood within 48-hours of collection is considered "acceptable" in the field however, PacifiCord processes and banks your cord blood within 24-hours or less which is considered "optimal"-a practice also used by the world's leading public cord blood banks.

  • Process
    Once the cord blood has arrived to our lab we will begin to process it with the AXP™ processing system. This separates the stem cells from the other cells in the cord blood giving you the most amount of viable stem cells to store.
  • Test
    Testing is performed on both the cord blood and maternal blood to ensure the safety of the stem cells as well as the safety of the storage of the cells. We will send you a detailed report so you are fully aware of the results.
  • Store
    At PacifiCord, we rely on BioArchive® technology, the industry's leading liquid nitrogen cryopreservation and storage system designed specifically for the tracking, retrieval, and storage of cord blood stem cells. PacifiCord, along with the world's leading public cord blood banks, uses the BioArchive® because it offers distinct advantages over traditional systems used for cryopreservation and long term cord blood stem cell storage.
  • Cord Blood Report
    Once your baby's cord blood has been stored, you'll receive a cell analysis report that details the total volume of blood collected, cell count, and cell viability of your sample. You'll also receive a unique number for the exact location of your sample in our BioArchive® liquid nitrogen-based storage system, should your baby ever need it, we will provide it, wherever required.
  • Storage Certificate
    After your cord blood is stored, you will also receive a cord blood certificate!
