  • Collection Appointment: This will be scheduled following your initial consultation. If scheduling permits, your samples may be collected immediately following the consultation.
  • Sample Collection: The procedure normally takes about 10 minutes to complete. 60 ml of blood (2 ounces in 6 vials) is taken from your arm by syringe and one 4 mm punch biopsy of the epidermis is extracted from an inconspicuous area of your buttocks or upper thigh.
  • Priority overnight shipping: Your specimen kit will ship the day your samples are collected, ensuring delivery at the processing facility within 24 hours.
  • Testing of samples: Your samples will be tested to confirm that no contamination has occurred and that they are suitable for processing and cryopreservation.
  • Processing of samples: When all testing and processing is complete (5-6 weeks), a CelBank™ Certificate with lab report will be generated and sent to you. An additional certificate can also be sent to your physician to keep in your patient file, at your request.
  • Cryopreservation: One full year of cryopreservation is included in the initial fee. You may choose to purchase additional years of storage immediately or wait until payment is due the following year. Discounts apply to 3 and 5 year storage plans. These can be purchased directly thought the CelBank™ website.
