Welcome to Smart Cells Baby

Smart Cells was the first company in the UK to release stored cord blood cells to treat children with life-threatening illnesses, and no one has been involved in more successful transplants than us.



Cord blood cells are biological cells found in the body. They’re there to act as a repair and maintenance system for other body cells, as well as the blood and immune systems. They do this by multiplying into blood, bone, tissue and organ cells whenever they are required to.

In short, cord blood cell transplants. Using cord blood cells, a transplant is used to replace diseased cells with healthy new alternatives. This helps to rebuild an individual’s blood and immune system, as well as being able to form other tissues, such as nerve and bone cells.

The potential for cord blood cell use to treat illnesses and disease is huge. Laboratory work has demonstrated that cord blood cells are capable of developing into a wide range of cell types, including nerve, bone, skin, heart and liver cells, plus many more.


Collecting cord blood cells from your baby’s umbilical cord is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Umbilical cord blood and tissue have proved to be rich in potent cord blood cells, and, with over 80 diseases for which transplant of blood-forming cord blood cells is used as a standard treatment option, the potential of the cord blood cells collected is huge.

Various immune disorders, blood disorders, metabolic disorders, neurological disorders and even certain cancers are just some of the types of diseases that cord blood transplants have been used for.
