The Enrolment Process FAQ
How do I get started in cord blood banking?
We recommend that you have enrolled and have your Cells4Life collection kit within 4 to 6 weeks of your expected delivery date, but you can enroll at any time before this. If you signed up before your 6th month, you will be entitled to an early sign-up discount.
What happens on the day of the delivery?
Remember to bring the collection kit to the hospital with you on the day of delivery and simply hand it to your doctor or midwife and they will perform the collection for you once the umbilical cord is clamped and cut.
Call us when the cord blood sample is collected so we can check if the sample is packaged correctly and fill out the shipping documentation. We’ll then arrange for a sample pick up and delivery to our lab for sample testing, processing and storage.
