Cryo-Save South Africa is a member of the Cryo-Save Group who is accredited as a Licensed Organ & Tissue Establishment for the collection, analysis, processing and preservation of stem cells from Umbilical Cord Blood and Cord Tissue in Europe.

Cryo-Save is an experienced and technologically advanced Stem Cell Bank in Europe and Africa. Established in 2000, Cryo-Save has been active in the stem cell industry for more than 15 years. Our long-established professionalism and expertise is recognised by the medical community and we have cryopreserved more than 260 000 samples from over 40 countries on six continents.

In 2009 Cryo-Save became the first laboratory in the world to offer a validated cord tissue stem cell storage service. In 2013, the Cell Factory in Belgium and Cryo-Save developed a revolutionary method to assess and confirm cell viability in the tissue of the Umbilical Cord itself. This is the first of its kind in Europe and Africa and ensures that your samples are viable prior to storage.

We currently offer the following services:

  • Local Cord Blood Storage
  • Local Cord Blood & Tissue Storage

  • Dual Cord Blood & Tissue Storage

All of our storage options are offered to expecting parents in South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Mauritius, Zimbabwe.

Our expertise and quality have made it possible that many samples released from our facilities were used to treat different diseases such as Leukemia, Blackfan-Diamond Anemia, Medulloblastoma and Cerebral Palsy. These samples have been released into the highly regulated environments of Europe and the USA. We strive to continue improving our facilities and protocols to ensure the best quality and security in cryo-preservation at all times.

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are a biological treasure. The importance of their current therapeutic applications and their huge future potential make cryo-preservation of these precious stem cells an option for the future of our children.
