Collecting umbilical cord blood to bank stem cells
If you are interested in having some umbilical cord blood collected during the birth in order to bank stem cells, please discuss this in good time with your attending doctor. You will need to complete the registration with the stem cell bank yourself.
For collection of umbilical cord blood to bank stem cells, Goldenes Kreuz Private Hospital has a collaborative arrangement with the stem cell bank VITA 34, which is registered as a tissue bank with the Austrian Federal Office for Safety in Health Care (BASG – Bundesamt für Sicherheit im Gesundheitswesen).
Goldenes Kreuz receives a quality report twice a year from the stem cell bank. Midwives and doctors are regularly trained in the collection, documentation and handling of this material.
If you are interested, please contact our partner, “Vita 34 AG”, directly.
