Cord blood banking is the process of collecting, processing and storing these cells for use in future stem cell therapies. Currently, stem cells found in cord blood are used in treating over 85 diseases including cancerous blood disorders such as leukaemia, and genetic blood diseases like Fanconi anaemia.
Doctors, scientists and industry experts widely believe that stem cells will play a key role in the future of regenerative medicines, and may soon provide therapies for many diseases that are currently incurable, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, as well as the ability to develop into entire organs. Stem cells found in your baby’s cord blood are unique.
They are a perfect match for your baby and have a 25% chance of matching a sibling, so you know that should they ever be required there will be no waiting and hoping for a suitable donor, and no fear of the body rejecting the cells.
There is only one chance to bank your baby’s cord blood; the day they are born. Get in touch with us today to find out more about the benefits of cord blood banking.

How does it work?
The science behind cord blood banking is complicated, but storing your baby’s stem cells couldn’t be simpler. Here’s how it works
We send you your collection kit well before the birth date, which contains everything you need to collect the sample (make sure you take it with you to the hospital on the big day!)
After birth, your healthcare professional will extract the sample, and place it back into the collection kit
Our medical courier then collects the kit from your hospital or home, delivering it to our Laboratory
Once arrived we,
We check your sample is healthy and viable for future use
We process your sample to concentrate the number of stem cells stored, and split into multiple portions for future use
We double check the health of the sample and count the number of stem cells extracted, to make sure it’s ready and viable should it ever be needed in the future
Your baby’s sample is then cryogenically frozen, and stored in our facilities for decades to come
Should you ever need to use your sample, we’ll take care of everything and can ship it anywhere in the world
