What is the minimum blood volume to be collected?

CReATe recommends collection of as much blood as possible. We do not require a minimum collection volume as it may still contain an adequate numbers of cells.

What if we don’t have enough blood?

You collect as much as possible and continue according to collection instructions. When the sample is being processed at CReATe we evaluate the number of cells in the sample and we notify the parents if any concerns arise.

As long a length of cord as possible is requested (up to 40cm).

The health of the mother and her baby/ies always comes first. If a collection does not occur, please make sure that the parents are aware of this.
