Health Care Professional FAQ
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.
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.
It is the parents’ responsibility to arrange for the transportation of the cord blood and Peristem™ samples to CReATe Cord Blood Bank after it has been collected. The instruction page lists specific couriers that should be contacted in advance to make transportation arrangements.
CReATe provides a variety of comprehensive information sessions for parents and health care providers which includes:
