Once the umbilical cord blood and cord tissue samples arrive, they are unpacked and assigned unique bar codes. They are then prepared for transfer into a sterile environment for processing.
The umbilical cord blood and tissue samples are transferred to barcode labelled storage bags with tamper-evident seals. The samples are then frozen in a controlled manner to prevent ice crystals forming in the bag. Once frozen the samples are stored in vapour phase liquid nitrogen.
Once we have successfully processed and stored your baby’s cord blood and cord tissue samples, we will call you. We will then have to wait for the test results from the maternal blood sample to be reported back.
We will send you a full set of your results which will include the following;
