Please follow the recommendation for collecting the largest volume of cord blood possible! Cord blood collection should be performed immediately after birth and umbilical cord being cut!
Place the collection system below the placentae level so that the cord blood can run freely into the collection system (you may pull placentae higher than the collection system in case of hasty placentae birth).
Disinfect the umbilical cord fragment (10-12 cm down the cut) and insert a collection system needle into the disinfected fragment. Slowly mix the anticoagulant with the blood running down into the collection system. If the blood flow is poor, move the needle in the umbilical cord or make another puncture elsewhere (2 cm higher than the previous place after disinfecting it).
After cord blood flow slowing down or stopping nip the umbilical cord higher (closer to placentae) where the cord blood is visual, and after disinfection of the new place, insert the needle into the umbilical cord vein.
After cord blood stopped flowing into the collection system, squeeze umbilical cord with fingers in the area close to placentae and with one unceasing movement squeeze out the rest of cord blood to the place of puncture.
Wait the placentae birth, disinfect the place of placenta and umbilical cord junction and keep the cord blood collection on (insert a needle into the vein in this area).
After the cord blood finally stopping flowing, take the needle out of the umbilical cord and pull it upwards so that the cord blood lefts can flow down to the collection system.
Firmly tie two knots on the collection system tube (first knot being 10-15 cm away from the system itself, the second being 10-15 cm away from the first). Cut the needle off the system.
Place the collection system with cord blood into the HEMAFUND`s thermocontainer and the accompanying documentation protected with file – to the thermobag.
Every single drop is vital! Please contact HEMAFUND mandatory informing on the cord blood collection!
Umbilical cord collection is performed immediately after cord blood being collected!
Disinfect the area of the probable fragment for collection.
Cut 10-15 cm long fragment and cleanse it with a sterile serviette.
Open a sterile vial with transporting medium and place the fragment into it.
Close the vial tightly and place it into the thermovessel.
Place the thermovessel into HEMAFUND`s cord blood container.
Please contact HEMAFUND mandatory informing on the material collection!
