Using Cord Blood

If your doctor determines that your stem cells may be advantageous, we'll work with your medical team to provide documentation and samples so that they can plan for the treatment. We'll also coordinate on the delivery of your child’s stem cell unit to the appropriate medical facility.

ViaCord's Service - An Overview

  • After you enroll with ViaCord, we ship you a cord blood collection kit in the mail. 
  • Give your medical team a heads up and on the big day provide them with the kit. 
  • Once your baby is born, and after your umbilical cord is cut, your doctor or midwife will insert a needle to collect the remaining blood. It takes about 5 minutes. 
  • Once the collection kit is ready for pick up call ViaCord and a courier is dispatched to your location. 
  • After your unit arrives at ViaCord’s Processing Lab, specialists will process your baby’s stem cells to maximize cell yield. They are then transferred to a transplant-ready cryobag for storage at or below ≤ -170º C (brrr). 
  • If you ever need to retrieve your stem cells, call us.
