My name is Justin Fuller and I am a Senior Client Coordinator and Training Coordinator at Cryo-Cell International.  I have been involved in the cord blood banking industry since 2008, and have seen it progress dramatically over the past several years; especially with regenerative therapies such as cerebral palsy.

My older sister was born with cerebral palsy, the leading disease that cord blood stem cells have been used to help treat for the past 20 years.  She struggled when we were in childhood to do many of the simple things that other children took for granted, and many times all I wished I could do was change that.

I may not have been able to reverse her diagnosis, but I was able to do the next best thing.  Educate her on the one time opportunity to capture lifesaving cord blood stem cells that could be used to help safeguard her family and two sons.

Our commitment to quality

Our commitment to quality

The ultimate goal of all cord blood banks when processing is to get the most cord blood stem cells possible that will work when needed. To achieve this goal there are many steps that come prior to that final cord blood stem cell collection going into the freezer.  Collection, transportation, processing, freezing and storing all contribute to the overall quality of the cord blood product. Any one of these steps, if not done correctly, could result in a once in a lifetime collection being unusable.

Our commitment to quality shows in Cryo-Cell’s choosing to follow the Quality Standards of AABB, FACT and ISO 9001. To us, this means that we go through rigorous evaluations of our quality system (audits) by the best people in our field to ensure that we are applying the most up to date quality procedures.
