Umbilical cord blood banking with the UK’s leading stem cell company

At Smart Cells we don’t mind admitting that we haven’t stored the most samples, we haven’t acquired unnecessary accreditations or licences and we might not always be the first choice for every customer.

However, you are taking a pioneering decision to store your baby’s stem cells and potentially secure their wellbeing. For this reason we are proud to be the first company in the UK to offer this service. Our focus is you, the customer, and we are the only company to provide you with a comparison table that doesn’t just favour ourselves.

We don’t need gimmicks or fancy phrases. We take a unique view of comparisons and think it is best to be open and honest about the information we provide to you. See for yourself by checking out our comparison table.
