It is our pleasure to announce that Cord Blood Cryosource and California Cryobank Stem Cell Services (“FamilyCord”) have reached an agreement to provide ongoing stem cell services through FamilyCord.
FamilyCord is a leading US cord blood company that has been providing stem cell services for more than 19 years. The company has an "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau and is operated by nationally renowned physicians, including a stem cell transplant physician. FamilyCord is guided by world-class scientific expertise and medical ethics in everything it does. FamilyCord has extensive experience in clinical laboratory management, cord blood banking, and frozen tissue storage.
What will this mean for my stem cells?
Your cord blood stored at the Las Vegas Cord Blood Cryosource facility has been safely transferred to FamilyCord’s facility in Los Angeles by a cryogenic shipping specialist. Your cord blood stem cells have continued to have cryogenic services without interruption. Your stem cells are available to you should a medical need arise for your family.
How do I pay my annual storage free?
FamilyCord will honor any years that have already been prepaid under the terms in your original Cord Blood Cryosource agreement. For clients who pay on a year-to-year basis, the billing of the annual storage fee will be charged by FamilyCord on the birth month of your child (renewal month).
What if I’m pregnant again and need new services?
If you are expecting again and would like to enroll for new services, you will be able to take advantage of FamilyCord’s repeat client discount of $600. Also, in addition to cord blood banking services, FamilyCord offers cord tissue banking services which can be combined for even greater savings.
What if I have questions?
Please contact FamilyCord via email or by phone at 888-828-2673, Monday-Friday 7am-6pm PDT.
