This gives assurance that all stem cells released by Netcells will be accepted by transplant centres across the world.
We are the only laboratory on the African continent to carry certified international accreditation which gives you assurance that stem cells released from our laboratory will be accepted at transplant centres across the world. We do not claim the accreditation of our international partners.
We are based in South Africa and have been operating successfully for 10 years with a proven track record.
We own our laboratory and do not out-source our services to third parties whom are not accredited and we have no control over.
We carry out the most advanced accredited conclusive testing on maternal blood and stem cell units to ensure viability and acceptance by transplant centres across the world. These results are made available to you.
