Description

NovaCord receives the collected cord blood unit, our professional staff will check all the documents and log the unit into our data base, then the cord blood will be transferred to the highly controlled laboratory where the stem cells will be processed, tested, and a freezing stabilization reagent added. The concentrated stem cells are then carefully cooled using a controlled freezing technology and finally preserved in -196°C liquid nitrogen in our GMP cryogenic room. Chain of custody is always controlled with two staff members checking each critical step to ensure the cord blood bar code serial number is accurately matched to the records. Every test result also has two staff members review for compliance to our internal and governmental guidelines. All of our liquid nitrogen long term storage tanks are equipped with a computer monitoring system and an auto alarm system. Therefore, the cord blood preservation is always and absolutely secure until the time the family may need the unit.

3. Gurinder Kapoor & Surbir Kapoor,

Novacord has been really good at rendering it service. As we had very limited information on stem cells, the Novacord team was very helpful in providing the appropriate information as and when required by us. The team was present right before the delivery to collect fresh stem cells. I would like to thank Fortis la femme and the Novacord team for spreading awareness about such a crucial thing which could be very beneficial for our little one in the future.
