1. Make sure stem cell transplants are a possible therapy for the disease in need of treatment
Stem cell transplants are approved for use to treat approximately 80 diseases, and there are numerous clinical trials underway to investigate the therapeutic applications of them on additional disorders. However, not all conditions can be treated through stem cell transplant, so make sure the disorder that your loved one has can be treated by a stem cell transplant.

2. Fill out the form on this page
Give us some basic information to let us know you need your collection, and we’ll reach out to you to organize the release of your stem cell collection as soon as possible.
3. Inform your physician and fill out our release forms
Once you place your request, inform your physician that you have done so. Once we review your request, if we deem your stem cell collection is viable for transplant, we will send you additional forms to complete with your physician regarding where and when to release your unit.
4. Prepare your loved one for stem cell transplant
Once you complete these forms and send them back to us, you’re all done! We’ll review them on our end and organize the removal of your collection from our cryopreservation tanks and their delivery to the location in which the stem cell transplant will occur. Use this time to help your loved one prepare for their stem cell transplant.
