StemCyte Inc., based in Covina, Calif., collects and stores donated umbilical cord blood for the treatment of many life-threatening diseases. Donated blood must be processed and banked within 72 hours of collection, never rising above 25 degrees Celsius. After another carrier damaged several shipments, StemCyte found the reliability it needs in UPS.
