WMDA-NetCord & FACT Events at the Second Annual Cord Blood Connect International Congress Were a Success

Posted in :: 2019 Volume 9 :: Thursday, September 26th, 2019

The WMDA and FACT hosted a pre-conference Cord Blood Day at the 2019 Cord Blood Connect International Congress in Miami, Florida on September 12. Over 50 members of the cord blood community from eleven countries attended. The day included topics such as trends in cord blood banking, emerging pathogens, harmonization of testing procedures between cord blood banks and cellular therapy laboratories, and cord blood selection services for transplant centers. Breakout sessions in the afternoon included a FACT inspector training track and a WMDA-NetCord & FACT cord blood quality boot camp track.

In addition to the WMDA-NetCord & FACT Cord Blood Day, FACT welcomed visitors to its exhibit booth!






All events were successful and FACT looks forward to the next Cord Blood Connect International Congress September 10-12, 2020, in Miami Beach!
