Date:5/14/2009

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI), the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company (http://www.cordblood-america.com ) focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally, said today it has received a commitment for up to $2.3 million to acquire or build its own state-of-the-art laboratory for the storage of multiple stem cell products including umbilical cord blood stem cells.

"The funding is from a private, institutional investor and allows us to focus even further on our due diligence efforts that I announced last week," said Company founder and CEO Matthew Schissler. "Certain properties of the funding will be recorded as both an asset and a liability on our books." Three hundred thousand dollars of the funding has already been received by the Company to begin the lab purchase or build out, with the additional $2 million to be paid out in future installments.

"Having our own secure cryogenic stem cell bank will provide Cord Blood America with tremendous growth potential not only with our existing cord blood processing and storage business but also emerging sciences for other types of stem cells, including peripheral blood stem cell and adipose tissues," Mr. Schissler said. "We've discussed having our own lab for quite some time. Having this funding gives us the resources needed to vigorously pursue and ultimately acquire or build our own state of the art stem cell processing and storage facility."
