An inclusive service with no added extras  

Because we’re the UK’s only cord blood bank offering cord blood collection, processing and storage inclusively, all within the same deal, ith storage options of either 25 or 50 years, we avoid the annual storage fees our competitors have to add to their  collection price. No wonder we’re the cheapest cord blood and tissue banking service in the country. 

A unique service that’s both ethical and fully-inclusive 

Ethical cord blood banking like ours means you pay less as well as securing access to precious umbilical cord blood for as long as half a century, making it available to help your child and other close family members for generations. As the UK’s most ethical cord blood bank we guarantee the security of your cells and fees, the only UK stem cell banking company to offer a fully inclusive service and the only one to harness the power of Escrow protection.

The power of Escrow

We protect your money in an Escrow protected account, which releases fees to us every year to pay for your stem cell cryopreservation. That means that, in the unlikely event something happens to our company, your baby’s stem cells remain safe along with your money. 

Say you move abroad. You don’t have to remember to pay your annual storage fee. You’ve already paid it, and if anything happens to you, your child’s stem cells remain safely in storage. They’re always there for you, available if you need them, wherever you happen to be based. Your child, when they grow up, won’t need to pay storage costs either, since it’s all taken into account from the start. 

We never put our fees up – Not even over 50 years! 

There’s more. Some banks promise not to put up their annual fees for existing customers, others will increase their costs along with inflation throughout the storage period. This means, as a parent, you could unintentionally leave your child with a future financial burden they can’t manage. With us, there’s no chance of that happening. 

Peace of mind plus a genuine ethical outlook 

We’re a business. But we put you first, and in our world that’s unusual. Banking umbilical cord blood with us at Biovault Family gives you the peace of mind you need over your family’s health, and also guarantees the security of both your cells and your fees. If that sounds good, and you’d like to take the next step, we’d love to hear from you.
