About Our Laboratories

Stork Medical’s partner laboratories are located in Allendale, New Jersey and Orlando, Florida. As can be reviewed below, our laboratories are fully credentialed and are leaders in the field of cord blood processing and storage. Our laboratories have been proven successful in maximizing the number of stem cells preserved, as well as a long history of successful transplants after long term storage.

Storage Method

A multiple compartment 25cc bag is used. (Your baby’s cord blood is collected by your healthcare provider into a 250cc bag. After our laboratory experts remove all of the stem cells from this larger bag, the stem cells are then placed into a 25cc bag that contains a special FDA approved preservative). This smaller bag has multiple compartments so that less than the total sample can be thawed for transplant, if desired.
