Preserving your child’s future through advanced stem cell banking


Storing your baby’s umbilical cord stem cells will grant them access to an array of pre-existing medical treatments and any future technologies developed during their lifetime.

This potentially life-saving step is taken with a simple, non-invasive procedure - and could well be the most valuable investment you will ever make.


What is Stem Cell Banking and why is it so important?

Simply put, it’s the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to preserve powerful stem cells extracted from the umbilical cord blood and cord tissue of a newborn baby. Stem cells are used in advanced medical therapies for more than 85 diseases and are at the forefront of medical research into numerous uncurable conditions. Existing treatments rely on access to stem cells, and by processing the umbilical cord blood and tissue of your baby, LifeCells can extract millions of stem cells to be cryogenically preserved for your family’s future use.

Cryogenically preserving your newborn’s umbilical cord stem cells with LifeCells provides you with the power to choose the most effective treatment paths for your family should the worst ever happen. Currently there are over 7,000 clinical trials involving stem cells going on globally, and the research agenda continues to go from strength to strength, meaning that, by storing your baby’s stem cells with LifeCells, you will grant them access to an array of pre-existing medical treatments and to future stem cell transplant technologies developed during their lifetime.




Why should you save your baby’s cord blood?

You have an amazing opportunity right at the start of your child’s life to preserve a resource that could ensure their long-term health and longevity. This potentially life-saving procedure is a simple and non-invasive step carried out immediately after birth, and it’s one that could well be the most valuable investment you ever make.

There are over a million parents across the world who have placed their child’s umbilical cord stem cells into private storage, with each one of those parents choosing to bank their child’s stem cells for different reasons. Here are some of the most common ones:

A Perfect Match When it comes to the public bank there is no guarantee of finding a perfect stem cell match. Private umbilical cord stem cell banking guarantees a 100% match to your baby, a 25-75% match for siblings and around a 10% match for parents.

Family Sickness Umbilical cord stem cells are used today as standard therapy for more than 85 conditions, including cancers, arthritis and skeletal conditions, diabetes, heart disease, cerebral palsy and inflammation disorders. Having a perfectly matched, and easily accessible source of stem cells could prove an invaluable resource for your baby and family throughout their lifetime.

Immediate Availability Stored stem cells can be accessed immediately with no additional costs. When relying on a public bank it can take weeks or even months to find a match, and sometimes this match is never found. If one is located, the cost to access a publicly stored sample is normally upward of £20,000.


Adoption or Donor Ovum/Sperm Following adoption or the use of donor ovum/sperm, it is not always possible to have access to a biologically related family member. Stem cell banking is a unique opportunity to save these cells in order to guarantee a 100% match, should therapy ever be required.



Your Baby




Naturally your baby will be a perfect genetic match to the collected stem cells.



Your Baby’s Siblings




There is also a chance of siblings being a suitable match to the stored cells, which is significantly higher than that of random donated stem cells.







Each parent is automatically a partial match, and therefore may benefit from the stored stem cells.





Our collection process is as efficient as it is unintrusive. Coupled with our world-class laboratory systems and storage facilities, we offer unrivalled peace-of-mind to every one of our clients.
