StemCyte™ has one of the most accredited and licensed cord blood banks in the world
Accreditation agencies and registries have recognized StemCyte™ for its dedication to higher standards and patient care. StemCyte™ is the only private cord blood bank that is both FACT- and AABB-accredited.
Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT)
StemCyte's™ US facility has maintained accreditation by FACT since 2006. StemCyte™ was the first cord blood bank in the world to receive accreditation in all three cord blood banking activities: unrelated, family-related, and autologous cord blood. FACT is known for international standardization of clinical and laboratory practices for all cellular therapies.
AABB (formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks)
StemCyte™ has maintained accreditation by AABB since 2002. The AABB is known throughout the world for its comprehensive standards for blood banks, transfusion services, and now for cellular therapy laboratories, including cord blood banks.
A valid California Biologics License is a prerequisite for operating a cord blood bank in the state of California. StemCyte™ has achieved and maintains California licensure, a process that requires a rigorous application and regular inspections.
In addition to California licensure, StemCyte™ holds licenses in New York, New Jersey, and Maryland, and is authorized to operate in all 50 states.
