As a society we’ve always dreamt of a healthy, disease-free world.

Shamshad Ahmed

Founder & CEO of Smart Cells International Ltd.

One of the bravest moves in that direction has come from stem cell research and therapy. Stem cell therapy is currently being used to successfully treat more than 80 diseases, but the field is rapidly evolving backed by prestigious research and clinical trials.

Smart Cells is the first private UK stem cell storage company to have released stored stem cell units for use in the treatment of children with life-threatening illnesses. We have released the greatest number of samples for use in transplants from the UK.

We believe with the development of technology in the future we will be able to treat even more illnesses.

We believe our customers deserve the best service available and we run our state of the art facility with leading professionals in the field.

We believe that storing your child’s stem cells at birth can be a crucial part of treating or curing an unexpected illness.

We believe that in the future this service should be available to every parent, child and family.

We are a company that is for life.

Smart Cells were incorporated in 2000

Using state of the art technology, we’re ensuring we are a technologically advanced and innovative company in the field. We have released a number of cord blood units for clinical use worldwide and are continuing to do so.
