Why use our service?

Backed by Science

We understand how important it is that you are able to trust your cord blood bank throughout your pregnancy, birth and as you begin life with your new family.

As the only UK bank working in partnership with NHS hospitals and active programs of clinical research, we also understand that when stem cells are needed for treatment, it is crucial that your storage bank has the experience and resources required to release your cells quickly and safely.

At Biovault Family we are committed to doing everything possible to help the parents who count on us. Cord blood stem cells are an insurance policy we hope you’ll never need, but if the worst happens our extensive experience means that your cells are in safe hands.

When parents choose to bank with us they can choose a fully inclusive package where their cell storage is guaranteed for 25 years. This promise is unique in the UK and is underpinned by two financial principles:

  • All-inclusive services. Full client support throughout your chosen storage period with no hidden costs and no annual fees.
  • Financial security. Your storage fees are secured in an independent escrow account, a proportion of which is paid to us each year for 12 months storage. If anything happens to our business, your fees and cells are safe.


Our service includes full, unlimited client support. Our advisors work closely with our stem cell scientists and can give reliable advice and, if medically required, take immediate steps to safeguard your family’s health.

When your cells have been successfully processed and stored, and our highly qualified stem cell scientists are satisfied that your cells are healthy and therapeutically viable, we will send you a storage certificate as additional assurance that your cells are in safe hands.

Human stem cell storage isn’t cheap, and nor should it be. From the design of your collection kit and testing of your unique cells to the cryogenic storage of every sample in our care, every step is executed with precision by specially trained scientists. We know that lives depend on our work.

But we also know there are many financial pressures when you start a family, and do everything that we can to make our service affordable to as many families as possible.

We offer 0% Finance for 12 months without administration fees, a 25% total fee reduction if you are expecting twins and refer a friend, an annual storage option and price beat offers.
