Firstly, I want to appreciate your decision to go ahead with stem cell banking. Relicord (by reliance) and lifecell are two reliable stem cell banks. Relicord is based in Mumbai, though location of the bank does not have much impact.

You can further find details on their respective website.

The cost of banking must be considered, it is about 50,000 - 100,000.

The use of stem cells is limited now, but with more research, the use of stem cells will expand.

Hope I have answered your query, if there are any more questions, please let me know.

Dr Juhi.
