PacifiCord uses top of the line premium technology to help retrieve and preserve the most viable stem cells for future use.
FDA Approved Sterile
CPD collection bags help keep cord blood viable for 48 hours after collection.
PacifiCord uses the only FDA approved sterile (and Heparin free) collection bag for use in C-sections. Using this FDA approved sterile collection bag is necessary to maintain a sterile operating room. Furthermore, PacifiCord uses the FDA and NDA approved anticoagulant Citrate Phosphate Dextrose Solution* (CPD), a cell protector, also recommended by the Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, Guidance for Industry.**
CPD preserves stem cell metabolism, unlike Heparin, allowing the cells to maintain their integrity between the time of collection to processing, as well as result in a significantly higher total nuclear cell count (TNC) before and after cord blood processing.***
