It is a regulatory requirement that all collectors of cord blood be trained in the gravity bag collection process. It is essential that you view the training material and complete the confirmation form for compliance purposes.
The gravity bag system has a number of advantages over the previous syringe method which include:
- The anticoagulant is already present in the collection bag rather than having to be added manually
- The collection system is closed which further protects the cord blood from any contamination
- The amount of cord blood collected is increased as gravity is used to draw it from the umbilical cord
Log in here to complete and confirm your training in the new gravity bag cord blood collection method.
It’s free to train and you will receive $205 incl GST for each collection you do.
If you are not GST registered, your payment will be $178.26 for each collection you do.

Thanks for the opportunity to refresh the procedure. It is such a straightforward process now and the video is very clear.

Very clear and easy to read manual. I have copied it on my PC harddrive for future reference. Video also copied on harddrive – very clear instructions. Easy to go back to sections if not sure.
