Has anyone heard of PlacentaBanking?
By the way, has anyone heard of PlacentaBanking? I hear Americord is coming out with a breakthrough in stem cell preservation that is much better than cord blood banking (I am guessing this is why the website is down today). Here is the company info:
Are you having a baby? By saving your baby's placenta you could one day save his or her life. Call today to enroll with America's most experienced placenta banking service. Americord Registry LLC, is the first cord blood bank to offer PlacentaBanking® or cryogenic placenta preservation. Americord focuses on the collection, processing, and storage of newborn stem cells from umbilical cord blood and the placenta for future medical or therapeutic use. Presently, cord blood is used to treat over 80 diseases, tomorrow countless more. However, since there are simply not enough stem cells in cord blood alone to treat an adult sized patient, Americord offers a proprietary process for storing the entire placenta and preserving up to 10 times more stem cells than cord blood banking alone. Pioneered by Americord, PlacentaBanking® is a safe method of collecting and preserving precious stem cells which could hold the key to your child's and family's health. Americord is registered with the FDA and the company's laboratory is accredited by the AABB. The company was founded in 2008 and is based in New York, with laboratories in Oregon and New Jersey. The phone number is 866-503-6005 and the website is www.americordregistry.com
