How do I know that my baby’s cord blood and tissue will not be mixed up with someone else’s?

Cell Care ensures that your sample cannot be mixed up at any point using a triple-identification system:

  • Your baby’s collection kit is assigned a unique barcode that is used at every step of the collection
  • These barcode labels have been validated for use on the collection bag, freezing bags, paperwork and all critical applications during processing and storage
  • All of the components used during processing and storage are uniquely identified and allocated for your individual use
  • The mother’s name is permanently attached to each step of the process
  • The cassette barcode label and storage location for your baby’s cord blood and tissue is stored in our validated computer system, which is backed up daily.
