  • Upon completion of all testing, you will receive a cord blood storage certificate to place with other important family papers.
Corporate Stability
9.  You may store these cells for 100 years, so the company you hire needs to be stable.
  • We expect to be with you and your family forever.  That's why we say we offer family cord blood services. However, we also recognize our responsibility to have contingency plans to make certain the trust you have placed in us is never betrayed.
  • Stork Medical and its laboratories are approaching 80 years of combined experience and longevity.
  • Stork Medical has been honored twice by the 110th Congress of the United States of America for their $60 million charitable pledge to our military. This is evidence of our fiscal strength.
  • In this world, where even multi-billion dollar companies have disappeared overnight (Enron, WorldCom, etc,) it is extremely important to trust your baby's cord blood to a company that understands its responsibility to you. For this reason, Stork Medical and its labs are separate corporations. In the unlikely event that Stork Medical or its laboratories were to have problems, the other is legally bound to honor your contract fully and without change or charge.
  • Stork Medical is privately owned, while our laboratories are publicly owned. This creates even more stability, as economic and social turmoil, over time, are unlikely to affect two separate and different corporate structures equally.
  • Because we take your trust in us with the utmost seriousness, and because we know that many samples will be stored for decades, we guarantee to transport your sample to a sister lab, at our cost in the unlikely event that all of the corporations were to close. We also pledge to keep you informed in advance of any such difficult issues.
Charitable Good Works
10.  When you choose to store with Stork, part of your purchase is used to make cord blood storage available to our military.
  • Stork Medical and its original partner laboratory, Community Blood Services have been honored twice by the 110th Congress of the United States of America for their $60 million charitable pledge to our military. We now welcome the participation of Cryobanks International in this noble cause.
