FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
 Cryobanks Clients Give the Company an “A” for Customer Service, Quality
                               and Care

Altamonte Springs, FL – April 10, 2008 - Cryobanks International, Inc., recently completed a
survey of private cord blood storage clients who enrolled in 2007 and the results show
excellence in customer care.

The survey was conducted in January with results compiled through March. Thirty-four percent
of Cryobanks new customers responded to the survey. Clients were asked a series of ten
questions allowing them to rate the company’s client service and care experienced during the
enrollment process.

Results provided interesting insight in a number of categories. Sixty-nine percent reported that
they had compared the company to others and included price in their decision. However price
was moderately important to thirty-six percent in the decision to choose Cryobanks, with only
eleven percent noting it was the deciding factor.

Quality of service received from the company’s Client Services team was rated next. Sixty-four
percent rated the company as “Excellent” and thirty-three percent rated it as “Good”. One
hundred percent reported that their Client Services Representative was knowledgeable and able
to answer all of their questions. Overall service and experience scoring showed that eighty-nine
percent rated their overall experience as Good or Excellent. An impressive ninety-four percent
reported that they would store again with the company or refer a friend or family member.

“Surveys are a great tool to find out how we rate with our customers. But you have to be willing
to take the good with the bad” commented Robert Gravely, COO. “This is an important decision
for families to make. We want to provide our clients the highest level of service and quality
possible. Our service is focused on education, compassion and sensitivity to our clients needs. I
believe these survey results show we’re close to excellence. We have a great team constantly
working hard to improve” Gravely continued.
Cryobanks International provides both public cord blood donation and private cord blood storage.
It is the only cord blood donation bank offering its services to interested mothers nationwide.
Privately stored units are processed using the same highly regulated standards as the donated
units. Cryobanks is one of the National Marrow Donor Program’s network cord blood banks, is
AABB accredited, and uses FDA approved processing standards for Good Tissue Practices
(GTP) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Other private storage only cord blood banks
are typically not regulated as donation banks are.

“Being a public donation bank our processing facility is top-notch meeting the highest processing
standards and regulations in the industry. We process our private storage units just like we
process the donated units. Our quality processing and excellent customer service are what make
Cryobanks unique” added Gravely.

Gravely reported that Cryobanks will add a web-based survey to their website soon so both
private storage clients and donation mothers can contribute. Families interested in Cryobanks
