About Us

LifeCells provide industry-leading stem cell banking to parents and families across the UK and abroad. By preserving and processing your newborn baby’s precious umbilical cord blood and cord tissue we extract and cryopreserve their stem cells and create a powerful resource for their future health and longevity.

We are passionate about healthcare for all, and as the UK’s newest stem cell bank, every aspect of our service, from our client care to our laboratory protocols, has been designed to deliver the very best for you, your baby and their future. Our ethical collection and storage protocols incorporate the newest scientific technologies and research, and our bespoke processing line ensures that we are able to process a high volume of samples precisely and efficiently. By raising awareness of the manifold benefits of stem cell banking through public information campaigns and education events, we hope that more parents can soon take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of banking their newborn’s stem cells.


Our Mission Statement

“All of us at LifeCells are passionate about the future of healthcare. We believe that new technologies, in particular stem cell-based therapies will soon expand the limits of regenerative and preventative medicines. At LifeCells we are helping revolutionise the UK’s medical landscape by setting new standards in private stem cell banking. We believe that every parent should be informed of the benefits of storing their child’s stem cells and should have the opportunity to do so. Our affordable and fair payment plans make this possible, and we ensure that we achieve the best outcomes through our validated laboratory processes. We are the company best equipped to take care of your baby’s most valuable asset for future health and wellbeing, their stem cells.” Jeffrey Vernes, MD


Setting the Standards

LifeCells deliver industry-leading services to all of its clients. Our collection process has been carefully designed to be as efficient as it is unintrusive, and is supported by a network of expert nurses, doctors and couriers; this, coupled with our world-class laboratory systems and storage facilities, means LifeCells offer unrivalled peace-of-mind to each and every one of our clients.


A National Bank supported by your local Healthcare Network

We have partnered with a range of healthcare providers, scientific institutions, logistics operators and local clinics to ensure that we have a nationwide reach with the ability to support you, your baby and your family throughout your pregnancy and beyond. At LifeCells, our local networks give us this national reach.

Our logistics partner, A4P, provide industry-leading service to clients across the life science and biomedical industries. Their specially-trained courier team routinely transport delicate medical cargo across the UK and internationally, in time- and temperature-sensitive conditions. The A4P fleet of climate-controlled vehicles are on-call 24 hours a day, meaning they can reach you within hours of your labour beginning. This means that samples can be transported to our labs at Discovery Park cleanly and efficiently, ensuring the health of your baby’s cord blood and tissue. No matter where you give birth, LifeCells will be able to collect, transport and preserve your baby’s stem cells quickly and safely.

LifeCells have also partnered with Wren Healthcare, a UK-based private healthcare provider founded by a team of clinical nurse specialists. Wren work closely with the NHS, pharmaceutical companies, and private healthcare companies like LifeCells, sending highly-trained phlebotomy nurses across the country. When you bank with LifeCells, a Wren nurse will work with you during your pregnancy to ensure that you’re ready for the delivery, and, when that day comes, they will perform the collection of the cord blood and cord tissue.

Our unique company ethos means that we work in communities across the country. LifeCells works closely with maternity clinics, nurses, healthcare providers and mums’ networks across the UK in order to spread awareness of Stem Cell therapies and banking, sending representatives out to run seminars, lectures and lunches at sites across the country.

All of our efforts to develop these connections mean that, wherever you are, you’re in reach of LifeCells.
