The Donor Process
The Labs proprietary process begins with meticulous screening of the donor mother and father as well as family members through several generations. In addition to routine industry screens for bloodborne pathogens, they also screen for heritable and non-heritable conditions, environmental contaminants from medications, alcohol, drugs, tobacco, and electronic vaping. Only healthy families who meet or exceed these criteria are considered as donors with the labs. These postnatal tissue donations are promptly collected from local hospitals by the lab specialists following a healthy cesarean birth. After processing takes place in their lab, allografts are tested again to ensure they are free of contaminants or infection, and contain healthy, viable cells prior to cryopreservation.
