    At the laboratory, the umbilical cord blood and tissue is processed and prepared in line with international standards and becomes first-class source material for possible application. The blood is frozen in at least six portions (one main bag, five retain samples). If the blood volume is very high, several bags are frozen at no extra charge. The tissue is stored separately in another bag.

Permanent storage is effected in grid-independent cryo-tanks at approximately minus 180 degrees Celsius in special freezing bags packed in a cassette. Each contract is open-end, so that your deposit can be stored for an unlimited period. Your stem cell deposit is insured by HDI Global SE, which will provide the financial funds in case of insolvency in order to continue the professional and controlled storage of your child’s stem cell preparations until age 50. This form of insurance is unique!
