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

We are a company that is for life.
WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?
They serve as a repair and maintenance system for other body cells and the blood and immune systems by multiplying and transforming in to blood, bone, tissue and organ cells, when they are required to. At Smart Cells we store stem cells found in the umbilical cord blood and tissue. These potent cells find their way to injured cells and tissue in the body and begin to replace them.
UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD
A cord blood stem cell transplant can be used to replace diseased cells with healthy new cells, and rebuild an individual's blood and immune system. More recently, cord blood stem cells have been shown to be able to form other tissues in the body such as nerve and bone cells.
UMBILICAL CORD TISSUE
The future of cord tissue stem cell based therapy in accordance with current scientific opinion is promising. Smart Cells firmly believes that storing umbilical cord tissue as well as the cord blood is the most efficient way to store your child's stem cells. Storing your child's cord blood and cord tissue stem cells opens the range of opportunity to treat disease in the future.
