Cord Blood.


Americord stores newborn stem cells from cord blood and tissue for future therapeutic use.


What Is Cord

Cord blood, which is found in the umbilical cord and in the placenta, is an easily accessible source of stem cells available when a baby is born. The stem cells in the placental and umbilical cord blood are genetically unique to your baby and family. Stem cells have been used to treat over 80 serious diseases and have the potential to treat conditions that have no cure today.

We make cord blood banking affordable.

Americord’s cord blood banking costs $1,999 and includes 20 years of storage, a medical courier, and the only cord blood collection bag approved by the FDA for all births, including C-sections. See how Americord’s Cord Blood and Tissue Services compare against ViaCord and CBR.

Americord is registered with the FDA and its laboratory is CLIA Certified, accredited by the AABB and comply with all federal and state guidelines. We also use the only cord blood collection bag approved by the FDA for all births, including C-sections. And we use a medical courier to expedite delivery of your baby’s cord blood to our lab.

The CordAdvantage.

Americord’s proprietary CordAdvantage product, which will be available next year, harvests stem cells from both the placental and umbilical cord blood, and may preserve up to 10 times more stem cells than can be saved from umbilical cord blood alone. The increased volume of stem cells that CordAdvantage will preserve is absolutely critical because, while stem cells are already being used to treat more than 80 diseases, there are simply not enough stem cells in cord blood alone to treat a patient who weighs more than 65 lbs.
