Why Customers Choose Pacificord

What PacifiCord does is optimal, not just what is acceptable in the handling and storage of stem cells. PacifiCord is FDA registered and has proudly invested in the latest technology used by the world’s foremost cord blood banks.

Using the BioArchive®, the world’s leading liquid nitrogen cryopreservation and storage system specifically designed for the tracking, retrieval and storage of cord blood, not only ensures that the cord blood stem cells will remain viable for decades, but the cryogenic system enables PacifiCord to properly follow the Guidelines for Collection, Processing and Storage of Cord Blood Stem Cells as published by the New York State Department of Health. As noted in the guidelines, cord blood stem cells are to be stored at -196 degrees Celsius and stored undisturbed while completely submerged under liquid nitrogen.

PacifiCord also uses the FDA cleared AXP™ AutoXpress ™ contaminant-free system, which individually and precisely processes the sample to eliminate excess contaminants that have been known to cause complication at the time of transplant. Published studies show that using the AXP to process cord blood stem cells also allows PacifiCord to achieve the highest and most consistent mononuclear cell recoveries in the industry.

In addition, PacifiCord goes above and beyond by ensuring sterility and ease of collection for deliveries performed by C-Section by using the FDA approved cord blood collection bag and FDA approved anticoagulant CPD within their collection kits. PacifiCord also stands behind their $50,000 Guarantee and their Cord Blood Concierge Service™, offering a personal courier service to clients.
