The Americord difference We are offering cord blood banking for $1,999. This price includes the cord blood collection kit, processing, 20 years of storage, transport back to our laboratory via an expedited medial courier, and no surprise charges. This is about half the price of most of our competitors. We are able to offer this because we don't spend 50 to 100 million dollars annually that the other cord blood banks do on marketing, such as paying for a nationwide pharmaceutical-type sales force, compensating doctors and hospitals to promote products, and advertising in magazines and TV. We pass those savings along to our clients without sacrificing quality. Our lab is FDA registered and accredited with the AABB. We are accredited and licensed throughout the U.S., including states with the most stringent standards such as California, New York and New Jersey. We follow all of the best practices for cord blood banking. Our Medical Director, Dr. Robert Dracker is one of the founders of the cord blood industry. He wrote the guidelines for cord blood banking for New York State and also sits on the FDA pediatrics advisory panel.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our customers think... When I began researching cord blood banks, I wanted to find the one with the highest standards – even if that meant I had to pay more. What a great surprise to find out that I could get the best service and the highest quality at half the price with Americord!

I had a million questions about cord blood banking. The staff at Americord answered them all and even explained complicated things about stem cells in plain language. They also walked me through the different options and payment plans and helped me find the one that was right for me.

We decided to save our baby’s stem cells because it seems like every day there are new treatments for diseases that used to be incurable. We chose Americord because it is constantly investing in innovations in stem cell preservation and it offers cord blood products that aren’t available from other companies.

Given the advances in genetic research and the potential for life saving or possibly advancing technology, I felt it would be an investment in our child's health to save his cord blood. After shopping around, Americord offers the most value and was extremely user friendly. This was extremely important to me, being a first time mother. I am recommending Americord to all of my friends.
