Cord blood & cord tissue
Cord Blood Collection Kit
Stem Protect’s cord blood collection kit is a safe and painless way for your healthcare provider to collect potentially life-saving stem cells. The cord blood collection kit protects the stem cell samples taken from the umbilical cord after birth. It contains all the medical supplies your doctor or midwife needs to gather cord blood and tissue.
A cord blood collection kit is included for free as part of your service. Your phlebotomist will use it to collect stem cell samples from the umbilical cord blood and tissue after birth. These are then secured and protected for transportation to our laboratory for testing and storage.
Why do I need a cord blood and tissue collection kit?
Stem cells are truly amazing. They’re incredibly flexible cells that can be used to help treat various diseases and cancers. The stem cells found in cord blood and cord tissue are younger and more versatile than adult stem cells, meaning they’re potentially life-changing for your child’s health.
The birth of your child is one of the best days of your life and a cord blood collection kit is likely the last thing on your extensive birth plan. However, it’s worth considering to potentially benefit your family in the long run.
Cord blood is usually a waste product that’s discarded after labour. Why not use our cord blood collection kit to put the stem cells in the blood to a more positive use? We can safely store them for your child’s future.
