Processing and Shipping
CellBank has contracted with the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) certified tissue processors, who receive the collected tissue and process it according to CellBank’s proprietary protocols. The bone graft and stem cells will be put in aliquots of several standard volumes. This means that from a single collection, patients have tissue available for several subsequent uses. For example, if bone graft is needed for a dental implant, a small 1cc specimen will be shipped. For a spine fusion, larger quantities of graft in 10cc increments will be available.
When the patient contacts CellBank regarding the need for tissue, CellBank’s customer service department coordinates the shipment with the appropriate hospital or clinic. The tissue can be made available with 48 hours notice.
