Stem Cell Bank nOvum

Stem Cell Bank nOvum was established in 2004 by specialists who run nOvum Fertility Clinic. Cryopreservation of tissues, such as embryos, semen or ovarian tissue, is an essential element of the Clinic’s activity. Our Fertility Clinic can be proud of the 23,000 pregnancies in its history –  the number which is increasing each day. Stem Cell Bank nOvum was the first bank in Poland which was founded by doctors: dr Katarzyna Kozioł, gynaecologist/obstetrician and clinical embryologist, and dr Piotr Lewandowski, gynaecologist/obstetrician.

Why choose us?

The well-being of patients is our priority

We offer the possibility of a cost-free withdrawal from the contract. We do not charge Customers an initial fee if the collection kit is unused. In case of resignation up to 14 days from the collection, we do not charge the basic fee. If the blood is not qualified, we do not charge the basic fee as well.

First year of storing included in the basic fee

We do not charge Customers an annual fee for the first year of deposit storage. Detailed information about the basic fee is available in the price list

Placental blood

We enable full use of the available material thanks to the additional option of collecting placental blood.

Safety

Our headquarters are under 24-hour surveillance and protection. The Building Management System informs employees by mobile phone network about every important change in the building environment. Cryostats are additionally secured with batteries that support their operation in the event of a power failure.

Direct transport

We provide safe blood transport from the hospital directly to the SCB nOvum headquarters. We are aware that the umbilical cord blood stem cells are very precious, therefore, the collected blood is transported only by experienced and trained couriers. If there is a need to interrupt the journey, the driver will not leave the collection kit unattended in the car.

Laboratories

The Bank has its own, modern laboratories: microbiological, serological, preparation and cord blood storage. Only authorised employees have access to those laboratories. Preparation of stem cells takes place in a closed (sterile) system, using sealer for sterile connection of the drains. During the entire process, blood does not come into contact with the external environment, which allows eliminating the risk of sample contamination.

The uniqueness of packages

As the first and only stem cell bank in Poland, we offer division of the deposit into 5 or 10 independent portions. Each cassette with the deposit has  two test samples attached, which can be used to perform testing before transplantation or tissue histocompatibility testing of the donor and the recipient (e.g. siblings).

The team

SCB nOvum team consist of employees with proven, many-years’ experience in the execution of laboratory procedures, managing the processes of preparation and cryopreservation of the umbilical cord blood stem cells.

The cryopreservation

The system for storage of frozen cells used in our Bank secures cell viability thanks to the elimination of the TWE (Transient Warming Events) effect (a temperature rise caused by inserting or removing the deposits).

Basis for operation

The Bank’s operations are authorised by the Ministry of Health. The accreditation is assigned every 5 years. Moreover, SCB nOvum undergoes detailed inspections conducted by the National Centre for Tissue and Cell Banking every 2 years.

  • Authorisation of the Minister of Health to operate Stem Cell Bank nOvum
  • Certificate of the Centre for Quality Research in Microbiological Diagnostics

When I became a mum for the second time, I had no doubts that umbilical cord blood was worth collecting and banking. This is a chance for the child, for the whole family, in case of a difficult health situation. Nobody wants to think about possible diseases and complications. But it is always better to be prepared and “insured” against this kind of event.

We do not know what the future will bring, that is why the nOvum Stem Cell Bank has become the first bank of our second child.

The only moment to collect a child’s umbilical cord blood is at the time of their birth. Stem cells selected from blood show great potential to transform into a different type of cell.

We do not know what the future will bring, that is why the nOvum Stem Cell Bank has become the first bank of our second child.

We learned about the possibility of collecting umbilical cord blood during antenatal classes. The subject of stem cells immediately seemed very interesting to us, mainly due to their special characteristics and ongoing research on their use in various fields of medicine, such as cardiology, neurology and ophthalmology. It is incredible how much potential is hidden in such a small cell!

I have recently become a happy mum. I want this joy to last forever.

I have secured my son by depositing umbilical cord blood at the nOvum Stem Cell Bank – … just in case, so that nothing gets in the way of our happiness…

I hope we will never have to make a decision about using it.
