Ohio Cord Blood Center Gets International Accreditation

Cleveland Cord Blood Center has gained accreditation from the Foundation for Accreditation of Cellular Therapy for complying with international standards for umbilical cord blood collection, processing, testing, banking, selection and release. This endorsement will allow the center to list its store of cord blood on a U.S. and international registry for use around the world.

The center also received designation as a Health Resources and Services Administration bank and received a contract with The National Cord Blood Inventory to obtain umbilical cords from minority mothers. Only nine other cord blood banks in the country have the designation. Cord blood banks are trying to increase their black, Asian and Latino since donations from those ethnic groups make up only 15% of the total registry pool.
