A healthy future for your newborn

has never been easier

We’ve broken it down into 5 simple steps

1. Getting started

Preparation is key. We reccomend you order your Collection Kit promptly after your 20 week scan to ensure everybody involved in the collection is familiar with the procedure.

2. The collection

Collection takes just 10 minutes and is 100% safe for your newborn and you. The collection is done by a trained professional and arranged by us.

3. Sample pickup

For your convenience we can pick up the stem cell sample in its original Collection Kit packaging at your bedside. Be sure to keep it at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

4. Processing

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.

5. Storage

We offer 10 or 25 years of storage to choose from. There’s 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.
