Why families choose Evercord

Natera’s genetic tests screen for 35 of the nearly 80 diseases treated with umbilical cord blood stem cells. We saw a need for a high-quality family banking service with more of the rigorous standards you’ll find with donation banks. So, we partnered with one of the oldest and most reputable public banks in the US to provide private banking at a new level of quality.*

 

Our partnership offers families:

The choice to use cord blood stem cells will depend on a variety of factors – only a physician can determine when cord blood stem cells should be used, on a case by case basis. Many of the conditions currently treated with cord blood stem cells are genetic diseases. There is no guarantee that your physician will choose stem cell transplant over other courses of treatment. Unlike cord blood, there are currently no proven treatments using cord tissue stem cells.
Activities for New York State residents are limited to collection of umbilical cord tissue and processing and long-term storage of umbilical cord tissue or cord tissue-derived cells. The tissue bank's possession of a New York State license for such collection, processing and/or long-term storage does not indicate approval or endorsement of possible future uses or future suitability of these cells.
