Our laboratory and processes are approved and certified by the following authorities. We ensure that we have the best practices in cord blood stem cells collection and banking. They are timely checked and we are audited according to their stringent criteria to achieve our accreditation.
AABB Accreditation(formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks)
The AABB has led the world in the development of blood banking standards since 1957. From 1991 onwards, the AABB has published standards for cord blood banking (which are updated regularly based on additional knowledge in the field), and these high standards are today recognised as the world's gold standards. These standards ensure that banks accredited by the AABB
provide their customers with only the facts and the best possible method for processing as well as storing the transplant-ready cord blood units until needed in the future.
Cordlife Singapore has been accredited by AABB since 2005.

The Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) is the leader in international standards for cellular therapy. It is used in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
FACT's standards for cord blood collection, processing, testing, banking and release are developed by highly-qualified scientists, technologists, clinicians and quality experts, who have the collective goal of pushing the boundaries of cellular therapy. Organizations bearing the FACT accreditation have earned it through the implementation of high-quality patient care and laboratory practices.
As of November 2015, Cordlife has been FACT accredited.
