Safe and Convenient Cord Blood Collection for Vaginal Births and Cesarean Sections

The Sterile Collection Bag accommodates either delivery method at a moment's notice with no additional parts or assembly required for use.

Cord Blood Sterile Collection Bag Features
For the collection of umbilical cord blood from either a vaginal birth or within the sterile field of a cesarean section.
Anticoagulant type and volume are specifically selected for cord blood collection to ensure a robust and easy-to-use process:
Bag with 250 mL fill volume
Set contains 35 mL of Citrate Phosphate Dextrose (CPD) anticoagulant
Permits the collection of up to 210 mL of cord blood
Innovative packaging and the sterilization process result in a collection bag that can be used safely within the sterile surgical field.
Unique collection bag shape maximizes the recovery of cell-rich plasma.
The in-line sterile air vent permits the recovery of blood without the need to strip tubing; a process that can lead to cell damage. The tethered cap on the vent ensures that there are no loose parts in the sterile field.
Needle contains a finger-friendly contoured hub with a “bevel up” indicator to facilitate a secure needle stick into the umbilical vein.
DonorCare Needleguard is a simple but effective method for protecting against accidental needle-stick injuries to collection staff.
In-line spike entry port/tubing is compatible with sterile connection devices. This permits connection to other blood processing components by any preferred means. It also provides a back-up system for sterile connection device failure or lack of availability.
Multiple-use sampling port permits sample for testing and facilitates the addition of solutions such as sedimenting agents.
Up to 210 mL cord blood; includes 35 mL CPD anticoagulant
