We adhere to the best practices and follow the stringent protocols from the collection to the processing and storage of your Child's cord blood. Cordlife Group Limited is the longest operating cord blood bank in Singapore since 2001 with over 50,000* families entrusting their baby's cord blood with us.
Since our inception, we have established a quality system and proven track record of reliable cord blood banking services and transplant use track record.
Our emphasis and commitment to quality was recognized when our facility in Singapore was internationally accredited by AABB (formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks) in 2005, and subsequently reaccredited five more times. As of November 2015, Cordlife has been further accredited by FACT (Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy).
Originally named the "American Association of Blood Banks", AABB is a non-profit international association of organizations and individuals who are involved in transfusion and cell transplantation medicine. The list of AABB Accredited Cord Blood Facilities is online and updated regularly. AABB accredited facilities are inspected every two years, and the AABB standards are updated on a two-year cycle by subject matter experts to reflect the evolving nature of the field.
AABB was founded in 1947 and is headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. Over the years they have developed voluntary accreditation standards for various types of blood banks, transfusion services, and laboratories.
The Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT), also a non-profit corporation, was co-founded by the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) and the American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) in 1996.
FACT is the leader in international standards for cellular therapy, used in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The FACT accreditation, a symbol of excellence, has stringent standards, with rigorous and thorough inspections across organizations' processes and practices. Organizations that achieve the FACT accreditation have demonstrated that their patient care and laboratory practices are of exceptional quality, and are in compliance to the highest international standards.
