Why Sanitas?

At Sanitas, we take care of everything to bring you the highest quality and most reliable healthcare. At a time when you need complete peace of mind that your baby´s stem cells will be properly preserved, you can trust us that all processes and protocols are in place to ensure that the highest possible number of stem cells are obtained and that they are of the highest quality.

High Quality Service

All processes are carefully monitored to ensure that the extracted cells are of the highest quality. This continues throughout collection, validation and the transfer of the sample to the blood bank. Samples are maintained at a constant temperature and are transported with a temperature recorder chip. The samples are processed 365 days a year and within 48 hours of collection. Only the best quality cells are processed: those which do not meet the quality criteria will not be stored unless the family chooses to do so and a fully personalised advice service is provided throughout the process.


Our cryopreservation bank meets all the requirements of Netcord and ISO 9001, and is fully qualified and guaranteed. We also have an expert medical advisory team, who ensure that the highest standards are maintained at all times.


Sanitas is now the leader in health care in Spain: 1.96 million people trust us with their health. Our strength in the healthcare market is shown through our ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of families at all times. Sanitas are members of of the SEGO (Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics) and make € 20,000 available to the family, if it is necessary to use the UCB sample transplantation (terms and conditions apply).
