Since its founding, Cord Blood Registry has led the cord banking industry in technical innovations and provided families with peace of mind and hope.
About Cord Blood Registry
Cord Blood Registry is the world's largest and most experienced stem cell bank. For more than 15 years, we have led the industry in technical innovations. We are entrusted by parents with storing cord blood and tissue for more than 400,000 children. Moreover, CBR was the first bank to offer families in the U.S. storage for stem cells contained in cord tissue, which may help repair the body in different ways.
CBR has also helped more clients use their cord blood stem cells in treatments than any other family bank. Our research and development efforts are focused on helping leading clinical researchers advance regenerative medicine that may help families in the future.
We aren’t just banking your child’s stem cells; we’re helping you be prepared for the unexpected. Knowing that having more stem cells for treatment can improve medical outcomes inspires us to constantly look for ways to improve. For example, despite easy availability of commercial blood bags, CBR created the CellAdvantage® collection system with heparin, which helps recover 99% of cells.1-3,8
Within our laboratory and in the research field, CBR is helping advance newborn stem cell medicine. Working with leading developers, we have designed and implemented new technology and processes for cord blood banking. Our cutting-edge laboratory in Tucson, Arizona, was designed and built exclusively for newborn stem cell processing and storage. Through partnerships with academic institutions, CBR supports research that could lead to new stem cell medicine in the future. We have cultivated relationships that allow us to offer our clients exclusive access to some of the latest clinical trials.

CBR has the longest history of accreditation with the AABB (formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks).

We are also certified by CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments), a federal program to ensure quality laboratory testing.
