Whole Cord Blood Storage

The Cells4Life Whole cord blood storage captures all cell types in the cord blood. This means that your baby and other members of your family will have the full range of umbilical cord stem cells available to you for future medical breakthroughs in this rapidly changing field of medicine. We are the only private UK cord blood bank to offer this superior service.

Scientifically, our cord blood processing technique is one of minimal manipulation, ensuring a 100% cell recovery rate as well as preventing unnecessary loss of important cell types. This ensures storage of the maximum amount of stem cell groups for treatments today and those being investigated for the future.

Why Choose Whole Cord Blood Storage?


100% of all cells and every cell type stored

By storing the whole cord blood, all components present in the cord blood are captured including HSCs, MSCs, VSELs as well as hormones and growth factors.


MORE cells = more opportunities & future proofing

Whole cord blood also contains other unidentified cells that may be useful in the future. Storing these cells together with those already known means more opportunities for treatments and future developments.


MORE cells = more treatments

Cells4Life split the whole cord blood sample across a bag and multiple vials. This has many benefits:

  • The bag and multiple vials are stored in in two geographically separate storage locations in the UK to provide an additional security.
  • Some therapies only require a fraction of cord blood sample. Storing in multiple vials mean that you have an option to use just a portion of the sample as required and keep the remaining in storage until needed.
