Chairman and Founder
Learning all of the details surrounding cord blood banking, and about what matters
concerning the processing and storage of your baby’s stem cells can be overwhelming. That
is why parents can have peace of mind knowing that PacifiCord has the highest level of
service, and has invested in the most optimal, state-the-art technology available, not just
what is acceptable in the cord blood banking industry.
From the time that your baby is born, your OBGYN or midwife will have access to only the
highest quality materials provided within PacifiCord’s collection kit: FDA approved sterile Pall
collection bag, CPD, FDA NDA approved, and recommended anticoagulant by the
Department of Health and Human Services. After the cord blood is collected, a courier will
come to your bedside to pick it up. It’s that simple.
PacifiCord has proudly invested in the same premium processing and storage technology as
the world-leading cord blood banks known for successful transplants, including the New York
Blood Center, Duke University, and M.D. Anderson. Our cord blood processing system, the
AXP AutoXpress platform, provides the most precise cell separation and the highest
published cell recoveries in the industry – important factors prior to storage. Storing your
baby’s stem cells in the BioArchive, the leading storage system specifically designed for
long-term preservation of only cord blood stem cells, is also a system adopted by over 29
countries, 76 institutions and over 60% of public banks worldwide.
When it comes to the quality and long-term viability of your baby’s stem cells, PacifiCord,
focuses on what truly matters; adhering to global best practices. In association with five
additional cord blood locations and three research and development subsidiaries
worldwide, PacifiCord is a member of the HealthBanks Biotech family of companies, which
for over 22 years has been a leader in pharmaceuticals, stem cell therapy, and research with
thousands of cord blood procedures worldwide. In connection with our parent company,

development projects, including those involving umbilical cord blood stem cells, maintaining
the focused goal to find cures for diseases and disabilities that are currently thought to be
The PacifiCord team looks forward to providing your family with our cord blood banking
