The company: This organisation was the first private company to offer a stem cell storage and collection service in the UK.
As doctors and scientists, the founders were aware of the potential benefits of umbilical cord blood stem cells but were unable to find a company that offered the level of service and support they thought was required for this specialised medical service. So they decided to found their own, scientifically and medically led, stem cell storage bank. By making clinical, scientific and evidence-based information available to parents they hope to allow them to make an informed decision about cord blood storage. They are working very hard to set the standards in the testing, processing and assessment of these precious samples.
The position: This position as a post-sales Customer Service Executive forms the link between Finance, Laboratory and Sales.
