Our Phlebotomy Partners

Pay directly online via debit/credit card or PayPal. Alternatively call one of our friendly team on 01895 424430 who can process your order and answer any remaining questions you may have.

A non-refundable booking fee is taken when you make your order.

The remaining balance is paid only after Smart Cells have confirmed the viability of the stem cells in your sample.

In the event the cord blood cannot be processed, final payment for cord tissue will be £1,500 + storage fee of £60/year. If you have chosen to store cord blood only then final payment will be £465.

The yearly storage fee begins from the second year of storage for a period of 25 years. This fee can be paid on a yearly basis in the method that best suits you. Smart Cells reserve the right to increase storage fees by inflation (RPI).

Transportation costs to the laboratory will vary for customers located outside the UK.

The team at Smart Cells realises instalment payments may be easier than a one-off payment. Smart Cells offers a number of payment plans that allow you to spread your final balance over 3 to 24 months. All plans are interest-free and there are no administration fees.

Payment plans are available whether you order online or over the phone – simply speak to one of the team on 01895 424430 prior to your final payment.

HTA regulation means consent must be given by the mother for cord blood and cord tissue to be taken. We have a duty to provide information about the risks, benefits and options available so that informed consent can be given.

Having twins, triplets or more?

Smart Cells offer a special discounted rate for all twin births so call us now on 01895 424430 to find out more.
