Umbilical Cord Blood Collection
After the delivery of your baby, the umbilical cord is clamped and cut. Your newborn is no longer attached to the umbilical cord. The remaining blood, which is normally discarded, is collected using the patented PALL cord blood collection bag. In preparation to collect your baby’s cord blood, the umbilical cord is cleaned with the enclosed Chloraprep swab to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination. The needle attached to the end of the FDA approved PALL blood bag is then inserted into the umbilical cord. The blood flows by gravity into the collection bag. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes. This procedure is safe, painless, and does not harm you or your baby.
Our cord blood collection bag was specifically designed as a sterile system for the most efficient collection of your baby’s cord blood. Our cord blood collection device is approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a cord blood collection device.
