The University of Colorado Cord Blood Bank (UCCBB), a major component of ClinImmune Labs, has a twelve year history of collecting, processing, banking and distributing cord blood for human transplantation. UCCBB is a public cord blood bank, which has consented 10,700 women and banked 6,700 cord blood units, of which more than 500 have been transplanted at 100 different transplant centers in the United States and abroad.
UCCBB is a major provider of Hispanic cord blood units to patients in the United States, Mexico, Central and South America. UCCBB is accredited by AABB and provides cord blood to stem cell investigators in Michigan, New York, Tennessee and Colorado.
UCCBB is managed by immunogeneticists and stem cell transplant physicians with decades of experience in this field. In addition, the parent organization, ClinImmune Labs, provides sophisticated HLA high resolution DNA typing, hematopoietic stem cell and pancreatic islet cell processing, flow cytometry and regulatory oversight to the cord blood bank.
The bank benefits both managerially and financially from an organization that integrates histocompatibility, adult stem cell banking, cellular therapeutics and regulatory affairs. The University of Colorado Cord Blood Bank is unique among banks in the United States in that all of the cord blood units are processed in a Class 1000 cGMP processing facility and managed by CordBloodBankManager® software developed under our guidance and constantly updated to meet our needs.
