Storage Process

The mother’s blood specimen is tested for various infectious diseases. This is a necessary step to ensure that the cord blood collected is free from any infectious disease and safe for future transplant.

Immediately after the birth of the baby, the umbilical cord is double clamped. After securing good care of the baby, the extra blood from the placental side of Umbilical cord is collected using the specific procedure under aseptic conditions. This painless process will be required about 2-5 minutes.

The Doctors will use an iodine swab stick to clean the umbilical cord before puncturing and collecting the cord blood. This will be minimizing the danger of bacterial contamination.

The collection bag needle is carefully inserted into the umbilical vein cord and the cord blood flows into the blood bag. The Doctor will attempt to collect as much blood as possible.

The blood bag tube is clamped and tied to prevent any leakage and ensuring there will be no wastage.

The Doctor will gently shake the collection bag back and forth to ensure the cord blood and anti-coagulant are well mixed.

Please contact our Client Support and our medical courier will come and collect it from the birthing centre /hospital to our lab within 24 hours. You will be notified once we have received your baby’s cord blood. The cord blood and maternal blood will be tested for various infections. After successful storage, we will send you medical storage and test report via email or postal courier.
