As a prospective parent, you are looking at storing your baby’s stem cells because you want the best health protection possible, not just for today but for the whole of their life. At first, choosing the right plan can seem a little daunting but we have been doing this for many years and it all comes down to how many cells are collected and how many times they can be used. Ultimately, you need to have confidence in the company that is storing your precious cells.

Compare cord blood banks

Cells4Life is the best option on all these counts, and here is why:

  • We give you the option to store cord blood in multiple samples, meaning that should it be required, your child has the opportunity to use their cord blood in multiple treatments.
  • We give you the opportunity to split your baby’s cord blood across two storage locations, providing the very best protection and security for their sample.
  • Our CellsPlus service provides your baby with more cells than any other method. The more stem cells, the more likely a treatment is to be successful, so collecting as many possible could not be more important.
  • We are the largest cord blood bank in the UK, storing stem cells for more UK parents than any other bank. We are also the only bank to have provided both cord blood and umbilical cord tissue for treatments. With Cells4Life you can trust that you are using the most experienced stem cell storage provider in the field.
