Title:Umbilical cord blood collection
Inventors:Haswell, John N.; Sarasota, FL, USA
Summary:Described herein are methods of collecting umbilical cord blood. The invention relates to a novel collection system involving the placement of an obstetrical drape on the obstetrical table with one end below the buttocks of the mother to which a pouch is attached which contains an anti-coagulant as well as a canal in which the umbilical cord may be inserted and secured with a sealing closure. Optionally the pouch may also contain multiple compartments with various blood-treatment substances. After delivery when the pouch is filled it is then closed and removed from the drape. Multiple embodiments of the invention are provided, as are methods for the cryopreservation of the blood. Therapeutic applications of the stem cells harvested from the blood include the treatment of numerous diseases.
