Banking cord blood is a simple low risk process. When a baby is born there is a unique opportunity to collect the baby’s umbilical cord blood that contains an extremely rich source of stem cells. The stem cells in the cord blood are the building blocks of the blood and immune system. It is a simple, low risk process that could help save lives.
The cord blood is normally discarded as clinical waste but an increasing number of parents are opting to collect and store their child’s cord blood stem cells at birth. In recent years, the number of conditions that stem cells can treat has vastly increased; who knows what the future holds?
The complete service costs £1550 or £2000 depending on your tissue storage requirements. You may need someone to collect the sample and our partners will charge £250 for this service. Our fee includes the collection kit, transport of the tissue to the laboratory, all testing, processing and freezing and 25 years of storage in the highest quality conditions. All prices are fully inclusive, so there are no hidden costs.
Parents rightly expect the best when it comes to their child’s cord blood sample. Biovault Family offers parents the chance to save their baby’s cord blood at the time of birth.
