Stem Cell Banking

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are referred to as the “building blocks of life” characterised by their ability to differentiate. When stem cells differentiate, they help to develop, repair and maintain function within blood, muscle, bone, organs, skin and other tissues in the human body. Stem cells are used in standard, often life-saving therapies.

 Why store stem cells?

Families, just like yours choose to bank stem cells to have their own personalised treatment available should they need it. Choosing to privately store stem cells means your cells are stored exclusively for your family.
