Storing your child's stem cells has never been easier

To begin the journey of protecting your newborns future, place an order for your Collection Kit.

Simply click here or press the Start Now button.

You will be directed to fill out our health and medical history questionnaire securely online.

We recommend that you order your Collection Kit promptly after your 20 week scan to ensure that your birthing partner, midwife and phlebotomist (if applicable) have plenty of time to familiarise themselves with our instructions.

If you have any questions please feel to ask.

Collection takes just 10 minutes

Yes thats right, collection takes just 10 minutes! It is also non-invasive, meaning that it’s 100% safe for both your newborn and you.

Only once your midwife is satisfied your newborn and you are well will collection of cord blood and tissue begin.

Using simple instructions, your midwife, doctor or phlebotomist will collect and label your cord blood, cord tissue and maternal blood sample ready for transportation to our laboratory in the original Collection Kit packaging.

The whole process is straightforward and takes just a few minutes. The collection is done by a trained professional and arranged by us, allowing you to focus on what matters most during birth.

We offer a phlebotomy service as an optional extra to ensure that your newborns stem cell sample is collected by a blood collection specialist. You can also enquire with your midwife or doctor to ask if they are able to perform the collection.

Sit back and relax. We can pick up your Collection Kit at your bedside

To make the whole stem cell banking process as easy as possible for you, we can pick up your newborn’s stem cell sample from your bedside.

Your birthing partner should follow the instructions inside the Collection Kit and call us to arrange a courier to deliver the sample to our laboratory safely.

We use a nationally recognised courier and temperature controlled vehicles to keep the sample at an optimal temperature.

Until the courier arrives, ensure that you keep the sample in the Collection Kit original packaging at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

We use advanced processing methods for the best results

In a matter of hours your newborn’s cord blood and tissue sample will arrive at our laboratory to be processed using our advanced processing methods.

The sample will then be given a unique barcode.

Your child's stem cells could last decades when cryogenically stored

We have two storage length options available. 10 years of storage and 25 years of storage. There are no yearly storage fee’s and at the end of your contract length we will contact you to ask if you would like to extend it with our plans offered at that time.

One less thing to worry about

Stem cell banking brings an incredible sense of peace┬áto you as a parent – knowing that you have done everything you can to ensure that your child has the chance to lead a healthy and happy future because you planned ahead.

Tips for collection

Once your newborn’s sample is safely stored away, you will receive a certificate of storage and confirmation of test results for the stem cell count.

We’re happy to talk any amount of time after storage if you have questions about the stored sample.

Keep in touch.
