Cryo-Cell’s mission is to provide our clients with the premier stem cell cryopreservation service and to support research and development initiatives for regenerative medicine.
Pride in our people, our practices and our potential to save lives.
Founded in 1989, Cryo-Cell was the world's first private cord blood bank to separate and store stem cells in 1992. Today, the company has over 500,000 clients worldwide from 87 countries. Since inception, 100% of our clients’ specimens have been successfully viable upon thaw. View Transplant Record. Our services include umbilical cord blood and cord tissue.
Some cord blood banks are simply marketing outlets that do not perform their own processing or storage. Cryo-Cell operates its own state-of-the-art processing, testing and cryopreservation operation. We are in complete control of every step, ensuring the highest quality available today.
