What should we do to store our baby’s cord blood?

It’s very easy, just decide to keep your baby’s umbilical cord blood stem cell in royan cord blood bank (RCBB). You can contact RCBB center or its branch in your country/city to sign a contract.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and qualified personnel ensure that your cells are processed and stores under the strictest guidelines.

1-Using the Collection Kit:

RCBB will supply you with a cord blood collection kit prior to delivery date. You simply take the kit to your physician or midwife in the hospital to collect the cord blood following the delivery.

2-Umblical Cord Blood Collection:

Immediately after your baby’s delivery, the umbilical cord is clamped and the baby gets separated from the cord.
at this point, the needle attached to the collection bag is inserted into the vein in the umbilical cord. The placental blood/ umbilical cord blood, drown by gravity, then flows into the collection bag.
The process is non-invasive, painless and generally takes between three to five minutes to complete.

3- Shipping Your Kit to RCBB:

Once the attending physician or midwife has Completed the umbilical blood collection, your sample is picked up at your hospital, either by your husband, your relative or shipment company and sent to our lab center in Resalat Highway in Banihashem SQ, Tehran Within 48 hours of delivery.

4-Processing:

Cord blood processing includes full cell separation, a method designed to protect viability and usability of your baby’s stem cells.
To shield the Stem cells from freezing damage, we use DMSO (Dimethy 1 Sulfoxide), a cryoprotectant, which is washed out of the stem cells in thawing and preparation process prior to transplantation. Research has shown that this methodology is the most successful in term of cell recovery and ultimately for transplant results.

5-Quality Control Steps and long term Storage:

Your baby’s Cord blood stem cells are stored in bag or cryovials. With multiple storage units, it is not necessary to thaw your entire specimen at once: thus, RCBB offers the potential for multiple usage. The cryovial are designed specifically for long-term cryogenic storage for cheking cell condition during long term storage and before using the main bag for cell therapy. We alsoset asife one smaller sample, which can be used for human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) typing in case the cells are needed for someone other than your baby. (HLA typing determines whether a patient has suitable donor  for stem cell transplant.) One hundred percent of the processed cells are preserved for your family and nothing is withheld for other use.
