Learn how to transition to the new NetCord-FACT Cord Blood Standards
The Seventh Edition NetCord-FACT (Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy) International Standards for cord blood collection, banking, and release take effect January 15th, 2020. If you haven't had time to fully digest the updated standards, or have questions about preparing your organization to meet them, join Paul Eldridge, PhD, in this installment of the Share the Science webinar series.
Comprised of one steering committee, three subcommittees, and a total of 30 representatives, the committee for the new NetCord-FACT International Standards began their development process in January 2018. The Standards contain important additions and changes to requirements to reflect current processes typical in a cord blood bank. These changes maintain the relevance of the Standards in the cord blood field. The committee’s commitment, expertise, and experience is invaluable to the development of these Standards.
In this timely webinar, Dr. Eldridge, Director of Advanced Cellular Therapeutics Facility at University of North Carolina Bone Marrow Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program and chair of the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) standards committee, will review the significant changes to the Seventh Edition of the NetCord-FACT Cord Blood Standards. He will also provide examples for effective implementation.
