Some companies store umbilical cord blood samples in two separate locations – why don’t Biovault Family do this?
We take the responsibility of ensuring the safety and security of your child’s cord blood sample very seriously.
When your sample is stored with Biovault Family, you can rest assured that it will be processed and cryopreserved as soon as possible after the birth of your baby in order to maximise the sample’s viability for future use.
If a section of the sample were to be transported to another location, this would be after the controlled freezing process – at a time when the sample is very delicate, and the risk of damage to the sample is high. Therefore, we believe that it is best to protect the sample within its allocated storage location, so that it’s safe & ready if you ever need it.
