On the day of admission, you will have to take the Collection Kit to the hospital and deliver it to the health care staff responsible for the delivery, who have been notified in advance. After the blood collection you will have to activate the ordinary procedure for the collection and shipment of the blood unit by contacting the Bioscience Institute immediately.
The bag will travel at room temperature in a highly protected, double isothermal container and does not require refrigerated vehicles. The shipment of cord blood to the Republic of San Marino will be constantly monitored according to dedicated and specially designed logistics, not requiring customs controls, and allowing flexible management of any problems related to holidays, strikes or adverse climatic situations.
If necessary, a dedicated courier will be activated which will guarantee the delivery of the biological material to the Bioscience Institute within the deadlines established by the Ministry of Health (“Guidelines for the accreditation of umbilical cord blood banks”) regardless of any adverse event.
