Our Public Banking Program

As the world's first family cord blood bank, we provide premier cord blood stem cell cryopreservation service. In 2018, Cryo-Cell expanded our role in the industry to include public cord blood banking services.

Cryo-Cell operates as a public cord blood bank in partnership with Duke University Medical Center. Cryo-Cell's public bank has been chosen by the HRSA of the U.S. Department of Health, along with other leading banks such as those operated by M.D. Anderson and Duke University, as one of the nation's highest quality cord blood banks to help build the National Cord Blood Inventory. Public cord blood banks are regulated by stringent guidelines. In addition, Cryo-Cell adheres to the high-quality standards necessary for accreditation by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).

Through the National Marrow Donor Program, our public bank has provided potentially life-saving cord blood units for over 600 transplantations. The program’s public cord blood inventory comprises superior, ethnically diverse cord blood units, which have been used in nearly 100 reputable transplant centers located worldwide.

How and Where is Donated Cord Blood Used?

National Marrow Donor Program Be the Match® has stated that each day physicians of more than 6,000 men, women, and children are searching the registry for a potentially life-saving cord blood or bone marrow match16, and beginning in 2008, the number of cord blood transplants facilitated by the National Marrow Donor Program has been approximately the same as the number of bone marrow transplants17.

Through the National Marrow Donor Program, our public bank has supplied potentially life-saving cord blood units to patients. The program’s public cord blood inventory comprises high quality, ethnically diverse cord blood units, which have been used at 95 high-quality transplant centers located worldwide.
