Upstate Cord Blood Bank is a unique not-for-profit hybrid public and family banking center. We offer options for women who choose to give the lifesaving gift of cord blood. Umbilical cord blood is rich in stem cells and has been shown to have a beneficial value in fighting against blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, and as many as 80 other life-threatening diseases. At our facility, we provide testing, processing, cryopreservation, storage, and distribution of cord blood. We are dedicated to improving the health and quality of life for people suffering from serious medical conditions through the use of donated cord blood.
