Since the beginning of our activity as a private cord blood bank - it was 2005, and we were among the very first in Europe - we have defined our procedures in compliance with the FACT-Netcord standard, also based on the recommendation of Swissmedic, the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products.
FACT-NetCord is a organisation based in Omaha, USA - since 1997, the worldwide benchmark for umbilical cord blood banks, both public and private.
At the end of 2012, after a lengthy and complex certification process, FACT-Netcord officially accredited SSCB and on August 2016 the accreditation has been renewed for 3 years. All over the world, only 54 cord blood banks are currently accredited - the best public donation banks and the best private banks providing autologous storage services. SSCB Swiss Stem Cells Biotech is one of the latter.
