ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank is honored to announce that it has been accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy ("FACT"). CORD:USE is a leading public cord blood bank that specializes in the collection, processing, storage and distribution of donated cord blood. Cord blood has already been used for transplantation in more than 14,000 patients with over 70 life-threatening diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma, thalassemia, and sickle cell anemia.

"The Accreditation by FACT is an important milestone for CORD:USE," says Dr. Edward Guindi, President and CEO of CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank. "Obtaining FACT Accreditation for cord blood collection, processing, testing, banking, selection and release of unrelated allogeneic cord blood units validates the high quality procedures which CORD:USE and our world-class team utilize. This accreditation gives additional assurance to transplant physicians when choosing our units for their patients."

FACT is a non-profit, voluntary organization that develops, maintains and updates comprehensive standards for all aspects of cord blood collection, processing and transplantation.

The examination team reviews all aspects of the cord blood banking process.

"We are extremely proud to be one of the elite cord blood banks worldwide who has met the stringent processes standards required for FACT accreditation and that provides the highest quality cord blood units for patients in need of potentially life-saving transplants," says Dr. Guindi.
