The percentage of total yield of nucleated cells (TNC) indicates the processing quality of a cord blood bank. Please look at the formula on the right.
This formula is use to calculate the percentage of total nucleated cells for all cord blood units that are banked at our facility. Simply put, a higher yield(%) equals higher quality. This distinguishes Progenics’ results from claims made by most other cord blood banks. We are proud of our consistent high yield of TNC which are shown in Annual Quality Reports. For further information, please have a look on our published peer-reviewed journal. (Yang H et al, Transfusion (2011) 51;284-292).
