Our cord blood prices are lower than our competitors, but how?

We are often asked why banking your baby’s umbilical cord blood and tissue with Biovault Family is so much cheaper than with other companies offering similar services in the UK.

But by banking with Biovault Family, you could save a minimum of £1,625 and up to £5,000 compared to our competitors.

How do we do this?

We are the only cord blood bank in the UK to offer inclusive collection, processing and storage with options of 25 or 50 years. Our competitors charge annual storage fees on top of their initial price. This means we offer the cheapest cord blood and tissue banking service. 

Ethical cord blood banking

Not only do you pay less this way, but you secure peace of mind for 25-50 years without having to do (or pay) a thing. We pride ourselves on being the UK’s ethical cord blood bank because we are able to guarantee the security of families’ cells and fees.

We are the only stem cell banking company to offer this fully inclusive service  and the only cord blood bank in the UK to use Escrow protection.

What is Escrow?

Your money is protected in an Escrow protected account. Fees are released from this account to us each year to cover the costs of stem cell cryopreservation. So, in the unlikely event that something were to happen to Biovault Family, neither your cells nor money would be in danger.

Your baby’s stem cells are safe

If you move to another country, you do not have to remember to pay the annual storage fee as you have already done so and if anything happens to you, your children’s stem cells are still safe, and ready to use if needed, anywhere in the world. You don’t have to worry about your child paying annual storage costs.

And that’s not all. Whilst some banks promise not to increase annual fees for existing customers, others admit that prices may go up with inflation during the storage period – so parents don’t know what the final cost will be when they sign up.
