Approved by the IVO

Cellaviva is the largest and most experienced private stem cell company in Scandinavia. We are subject to the EU Tissue and Cell Directives and are the only stem cell bank that has the approval of the Swedish Health Authorities.



It only takes 5 minutes

Cellaviva's midwife collects stem cells from the umbilical cord while the newborn baby lies skin to skin in the arms of the mother. This process is painless and safe for both mother and child and usually takes no more than 3-5 minutes.



No extra cost

You just order the Cellaviva box and bring it with you to the birthplace when the birth starts. The Cellaviva box contains all the necessary equipment for collecting stem cells from your child's umbilical cord.

Why collect the newborn baby's stem cells?

Stem cells are the building blocks of the body and are being used in a variety of medical treatments

Stem cells are used today as the standard treatment of more than 80 serious diseases, and research is constantly creating new opportunities for treatment with stem cells.

If you, your child, or someone in your family becomes in need of treatment with stem cells, there is a great risk of long waiting time for a suitable donor via public care. Some even wait in vain.

Stem cells from the umbilical cord are immature and therefore have a better adaptability than stem cells from blood or bone marrow from adult donors. In addition, they are easier to match and there is a lower risk of developing negative side effects of the treatment.

Cellaviva is the only stem cell bank in the Nordic region that guarantees viable stem cells that can be handed out for treatment within a few days. This is due to our unique and world-renowned laboratory process.

Cellaviva is a biological backup for the whole family

Immature stem cells from the umbilical cord have a greater adaptability than other stem cells, making a partial match sufficient. These circumstances mean that the probability of matching using the stem cells within the child’s family may be over 75%..

Cellaviva and the loveliest midwives Mianne and Henriette gets my warmest recommendations. Who, in addition to the planned collection of stem cells, had to step in and receive a little brother in a very quick unplanned home-birth. We are eternally grateful!
