Biological Sample Storage

The Biobank is a system dedicated to the storage of human stem cells, tissues, organs, etc. This managing system standardizes the collection, processing, storage and application procedures of stem cells, tissues and organs. Systematically conducts quality control and information management on clinical, pathological, therapeutic, follow-up, and other biological sample relevant agreements.

The biological samples include serum, protein, sperm, ovum, urine, bone marrow blood, cell tissue; or advanced clinical-grade stem cell products, such as umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cell biologics, fibroblast biologics, immunocyte biologics and other somatic biologics, etc.

At present, the ICT U.S. newly established biobank (clinical-grade) mostly focuses on providing MSCs (umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells) storage for clients. Other biological sample storages are reserved for hospitals and medical research institutions.

MSCs Storage Introduction

  • Collecting and processing

    A. Obtain an understanding of ICT U.S. business partners, doctors, hospitals and other channels through our official website and become our client (you’re also welcomed to visit in person at any time).

    B. Sign the agreement with ICT U.S. and complete the payment for the storage service.

    C. Receive the collecting kit and the pre-delivery guide. Download the ICT U.S. transportation app and register a personal account.

    D. Move the collecting kit to the obstetrician before the admission to the hospital.

    E. After delivering a baby, the doctor either starts the collection of the umbilical cord or have one of the family members informed and contact the ICT U.S. biological transportation department, of which will take charge of the delivery to the biobank.

    F. The testing procedure starts the testing procedure once the biobank receives the collecting kit. Test result are released within 20 working days to verify its qualifications. Qualified umbilical cord tissue samples will be processed and frozen in the biobank.

  • Quantity and Period

    A. The MSCs biological sample storage duration is 20 years. If the customer would like to take out and use the biological samples during the cryopreservation period, the freezing time will be extended to 50 years, free of charge.

    B. The cryopreservation of MSCs is divided into the three following standards: basic, professional and family. Each standard consists the freezing of the umbilical cord tissue, the primary stem cells, the expanding stem cells and other different biological samples.

    C. Basic: 10 tubes (standard test tube)

    Professional: 15 tubes (standard test tube)

    Family: 20 tubes (standard test tube)

  • Service and Charge

    A. MSCs full testing process

    B. MSCs 20-year Cryopreservation Service

    C. MSCs clinical application

    D. MSCs anti-aging program

    E. 20 years of free insurance, valuing at $50,000

    F. Free Cord blood Cryopreservation Service

  • Application and Transportation

    A. Transportation within the United States are handled by the ICT U.S. Bio-Transport Department. Outbound transportation are handled by US medical transportation partners, and inbound China by Jingdong coldchain logistics; with electronic tracking throughout the delivery process, utilization of the MVE company’s most advanced portable liquid nitrogen tank. The transportation temperature is ensured to be no lower than -150 degree celsius.

    B. Centralized transportation by month, with 75 being the maximum volume per transportation, simultaneously fulfilling the demands of multiple clients. Lowered transportation cost, with the minimum amounting to that of an economy class plane ticket.

    C. All samples are processed by GMP standard laboratories in both the U.S. and China— professional, safe and guaranteed stem cell viability.

  • Cooperation in United States and China

    A. North American Regenerative Medicine Research Center. –Independent local laboratory

    B. American partnership institutes–E.g. Asian Hospital and Medical Center (AHMC).

    C. ICT U.S. China Clinical Application Center –Independent laboratory in China

    D. The Third Medical Center of Chinese PLA General Hospital exclusively affiliated hospital in China
