Words would not be enough to explain about the excellent experience we had.Starting from getting to know all that me... and my wife wanted to know till collection of cord blood and stem cell from the hospital.Apart from that we had a personalized experience, Minki guided us through every small step and the journey did not stop once we made the payment, I mean it’s not just a sales that was completed, it was a great handholding process that we experienced with caring follow up and understanding when we are in a difficult phase during the journey of parenthood. We highly recommend Celvi, Minki goes extra mile to guide you and Celvi team makes sure everything is in order, if you are unsure of where to go ahead with the stem cell banking, this is the best you can experience, because I did my research for months and ended with Celvi, but it was an excellent choice we made. Thank You 🙏 Minki and Celvi team.read more

We had an amazing experience with Minki and the team. They literally walked the extra mile for us, by picking up our... kit the night our baby was born. Throughout my entire pregnancy I got whatsapp messages asking how we are doing. They add that personal touch to their service, which I think is amazing.read more

A truly amazing service provided and after comparison really the most cost effective. But then came the service from... Minki, it was beyond all expectations. She guided us through the whole process and was genuinely interested in us as a new family. If you want to store cells, in my mind there is only one option. Highly recommended.read more

We decided to use Celvi Cord Blood Bank due to many reasons, but the personal interaction with the client experience... manager, Minki, was the desision maker. She was always reachable and available to assist. She never pushed or rushed us to make a decision, as one would know, storing stemcells is not a decision one makes over night. All questions were answered and explained in a professional manner you could understand. She assisted with registration, which is infact a simple process, up to where the kit is delivered to our doorstep.The day of our child’s birth was crazy as one would expect, and there was no time to even think about the stemcells and the process. Just a couple of texts to Minki and my husband knew exactly what to do, once again minimum effort and a very simple procedure. Before we knew it, blood samples were taken, all paperwork was done and the courier was there to collect the stemcells. Minki also kept us informed until the stemcells were at the lab.This was all very reassuring in a time when the world was in lockdown with no-one really sure what was going to happen next. We would definitely recommend this service to anyone that is commited in their child’s future well being.Thank you Celvi and special thanks to Minki.read more

What first impressed me is the knowledge that the sales people displayed about their product, but what finally sold me... was the after sales service I received. Thank you Minki & team for the personal touch and being there every step of the way.read more

We filled in our contact details at the Baby Expo last year knowing very little about Cord Blood Banking. Not too long... after I was contacted by Minki who asked if we would like more information or to set up a meeting with a consultant. This was a very big decision so it took my husband and I months to weigh up the options and finally decide to go ahead. Minki was an absolute dream to deal with. she followed up each time she said she would, and was always patient and kind with me, never putting any pressure on but always keeping in touch and answering my questions. When we finally made the decision to go ahead, we considered 3 Cord Blood Banking service providers in SA and found the pricing for Celvi to be the best. Despite the value for money, they certainly offered the best service and I truly enjoyed dealing with Minki. We also got great service from Lindi who dropped off the kit and gave us a little gift.We hope we never have to use the stem cells, but are so glad we took the decision to trust this precious blood with the Celvi team. Thank you for making this difficult decision a bit easier 🙂read more

The treating doctor will determine the use of cord blood for treatment, depending on many factors, including the patient’s medical condition, the quality of the cord blood sample, if the patient’s own cord blood can be used or an adequately matched donor’s cord blood.The use of cord blood has been established in stem cell transplantation and has been used to treat more than 80 diseases. The use of cord blood in regenerative medicine is still being researched and there is no guarantee that treatments being studied in the laboratory, clinical trials, or other experimental treatments will be available in the future.The use of cord tissue stem cells is still in early research stages, and there is no guarantee that treatments using cord tissue stem cells will be available in the future. Cord tissue stem cells are found in the cord tissue which is stored whole. Additional processing will be required to isolate the stem cells from the tissue for use. CELVI (Pty) Ltd outsources all cord blood and tissue processing and storage activities to Next Biosciences in Midrand, South Africa, a licensed and AABB accredited facility.
