Our laboratories

We are proud to be Europe's largest specialist laboratory which processes and stores stem cells obtained from umbilical cord blood, placental blood and cord tissue that can be used for transplantation.

Our laboratory collects and processes cord blood and tissue across Poland 24/7. All procedures are performed in accordance with the high standards set by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) and monitored by our Scientific Board.
