Learn about umbilical cord storage. Cord blood is collected from the placenta after childbirth, and it is then sent to a cord blood collection facility where it is separated from other blood products. 
 
Your baby’s cord blood is stored in vacuum insulated cryogenic storage tanks, and are designed to remain at optimal cryogenic temperature of below -150°C for cell storage over long periods.
