ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank is proud to announce that the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank a three-year, multi-million dollar contract to expand the supply of cord blood units for the National Cord Blood Inventory (NCBI).

"Being a NCBI bank is a prestigious designation which further validates the procedures and operations which CORD:USE utilizes to ensure that our cord blood units are of the highest possible quality," said Dr. Edward Guindi, M.D., President and CEO of CORD:USE. "CORD:USE is honored to have assembled a world-class team of pioneers and leaders in the field of cord blood banking and transplantation, and this award is wonderful recognition of CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank, which they have helped build."
