Why choose Newborn Blood Banking?
Newborn Blood Banking stores the whole blood; it is not spun down or washed to only stem cells. Because the cells are handled less, they are more viable. Almost all other cord blood banks reduce the cells to economize freezing space and keep equipment costs down. Studies show significant progenitor cell loss with cell reduction methods. (O'Neill, B. Validation Studies. In: Barbieri RL, ed. Current problems in obstetrics, gynecology and fertility. Cord blood banking: A new source of hematopoietic stem cells for marrow transplantation. St. Louis: CV Mosby, 1996: 65-70.) See also: Broxmeyer, HE et al Human umbilical cord blood as a potential source of transplantable hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA, 1989, May; 86(10):3828-32. See also: Campos, L. et al Definition of optimal conditions for collection and cryopreservation of umbilical cord hematopoietic cells. Cryobiology, 1995, Dec; 32:511-15.

Newborn Blood Banking is licensed, and has never been found guilty of patent infringement. Only a few cord blood banking facilities are licensed to operate under the rightful patents (See press release).  It is very rare that U.S. patent infringement cases are overturned. Doctors who work in cooperation with companies who operate illegally may be liable for patent infringement.
 
Newborn Blood Banking stores approximately 20 times the amount of blood of other cord blood banks. When comparing, note a company that only stores 5 cc of blood, 1/20th of what we store, should only charge 1095/20= $54.75 the first year and 149/20= $7.45 per year storage. Or, if we charged 20 times the amount of other companies, we would need to charge 1000 x 20 = $20,000 plus storage 100 x 20 = $2000 per year. Only a few other cord blood banks store whole blood, none for less than $1100 as the initial cost.
 
Newborn Blood Banking uses a sterile syringe collection method. Other companies may use a drip method, which has been shown to yield high rates of contamination. (59.6% contamination rate) (Reported in Contamination Rates Associated With Various Cord Blood Collection Techniques by T.L. Tyler, Chicago Community Cord Blood Bank and Blood Systems Foundation, Tempe, AZ)
 
Newborn Blood Banking uses blood bags as freezing containers which have been shown to reward a 82% recovery-viability index, whereas those stem cells stored in cryostorage vials scored at 63%. (Transfusion Vol. 36, No.4--1996.) Public registries of cord blood donations also use bags.
 
All work is done on site. Newborn Blood Banking does not contract to any other business for any services other than shipping.  All of the workings of the business occur at our facility which is owned, not leased.
 
Staff is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year either in house or on call.
The company is privately owned and operated. The owner has his own child's cord blood stored in the same cryogenic tank as his customers.  He has a vested interest in making sure his business continues to be successful now and in the future.
