Stem cells generate all the cells and structures of the human body, from conception to the end of life. Stem cells can be considered our master building blocks for all organs and tissues.

Yes, we are isolating and preserving stem cells from blood.
In 2012, the discovery of reprogramming cells (iPS technology) won the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, marking the beginning of a revolution in modern medicine. iPS cells are already in use as tools for drug development and modeling disease. This will help with the discovery of new therapies which can treat various conditions.
Doctors are currently using patients’ own cells in cutting edge treatments for leukemia and myeloma. Excitingly, iPS cells are also being researched in clinical trials to develop therapies which could cure or even reverse diseases which were once thought to be permanent and incurable.
Today there are some approved therapies for leukemia and other blood cancers using blood stem cells. However, there are many more currently being tested in clinical trials with exciting results.
Stem cells are being studied as a way to understand and treat almost every disease imaginable. For some exciting examples, click here.
Our stem cells age with us, becoming less safe and effective to use in regenerative medicine.
This is your opportunity to be proactive in hopes of using your own, younger stem cells in the future, allowing for improved and more effective therapies.
We're the only direct-to-consumer fully FDA registered and compliant adult stem cell preservation service currently setup to capitalize on the revolution in regenerative medicine 5+ years from now. Our processes are aligned with FDA regulations meaning your cells are preserved in a manner compatible with future therapies.
There isn’t a difference - both are Hematopoietic stem cells. The only difference is where stem cells are being collected.
The quality of the stem cells deteriorates with age, so the younger the customer the better. That being said, 60 and younger tends to have fewer mutations, with the mid-40s is when mutations/damage begins to occur.
For example, transplants are needed because of mutations, and most bone marrow transplants (75%) are drawing stem cells from the blood, but they require specialized medical equipment and a lengthy procedure given the use case.
We optimized and developed a process to collect the same quality stem cells from the blood conveniently and quickly.
