Today you pay just the £160 set up fee. This covers the cost of your personal stem cell collection kit, account set up and arranged courier to pick up the stem cell sample after birth.
It is required that collection is done by a fully trained and qualified medical professional, such as your doctor or midwife. However, if they’re unable to perform the collection we provide the option of using our partner phlebotomists for £300. Just tick the option during the Checkout process.
Only after a successful collection will we charge you for the remaining cost of the service. This amount depends on whether you’re paying in full or in instalments. This cost covers the processing of the sample by our highly skilled scientists in our lab.
We charge a £50 per year storage fee for cord blood banking and £100 per year for both cord blood & cord tissue together. Although the first year is on us, it’s FREE!
You will be charged this storage fee every year until the end of your contract. At the end of your contract we will then contact you to ask whether you’d like to continue on a new plan or rolling contract.
