holds the official approval from AGES.
This approval in accordance with the tissue safety act forms the statutory foundation for the officially approved handling of stem cells and guarantees the regulatory reviewed correctitude of all processing steps. Companies, which do not hold this authorisation, are defacto not entitled to undertake umbilical cord blood collection and storage in Austria.
Numerous cooperation agreements exist between renowned hospitals and VitaCord
Parents have the possibility to store umbilical cord stem cells individually at VitaCord
This is a so-called autologous donation that, in the event of illness, primarily goes to the benefit of the child or - in exceptional cases – to genetically similar relatives, such as their siblings or parents. The child is guaranteed to receive their own stem cells, and is not dependent upon those of a possible third-party donor.
At VitaCord, the umbilical cord stem cells are stored professionally and not used for the research purposes.
