ReproTech, LTD Earns New York State Tissue Bank License

ReproTech, LTD’s Florida cryostorage facility has received the New York State Department of Health’s License for Tissue Bank Operation for storage of human reproductive tissues.

St. Paul, MN, June 27, 2012 --( While the Florida facility, like ReproTech’s additional facilities, located in Minnesota and Nevada, have and do hold New York State Provisional Licenses, this is the first time the Florida facility has been inspected and therefore received the full license.

Licensure is an intensive process, and is required for all tissue banking activities in New York, including collection, processing, storage, and distribution, as well as any tissue bank distributing tissues in New York. Holders of a New York State license follow regulations to ensure safe and ethical handling of tissues. Through a comprehensive on-site survey process, facilities are assessed for acceptable standards of practice. Enforcement action is initiated as appropriate.

More than 800 entities are licensed to operate tissue banks and non-transplant anatomic banks in New York State. The Blood and Tissue Resources Program oversees all human tissue banking activities and services provided in New York State, from donor solicitation to clinical use. The first comprehensive oversight program for tissue banks in the country, the tissue bank regulatory program has served as a model for development of national and other state oversight programs.
