Banking stem cells from teeth and cord blood

Dentists can ship baby teeth or healthy adult teeth in a temperature-controlled steel container to a lab in Massachusetts, where their stem cells will be spun out, frozen to more than 100 degrees below zero and stored StemSave is a New York City company that freezes the stem cells and stores them for later use. It's expensive, costing $590 upfront plus $100 a year to store the stem cells from up to four teeth for up to 20 years



There are several cord blood and umbilical cord banking services as well. Cyro-cell is one example.

Typical cord storage costs are $1,595 to start and then $125/year.
