"I was exceptionally anxious about my NIPT but all the staff were so professional and returned my emails and messages in a timely manner making a difficult process very manageable. I will absolutely recommend your services in the future."
"It was important to us that Nicholas had the opportunity to access his stem cells should he ever need them in the future. We didn't want to take this 'once in a lifetime' opportunity away from him."
"The main reason for us wanting to bank Noah’s stem cells is for peace of mind, and that 'what if' this or that happens, then we are covered, and we have his stem cells to fall back on.
The thing that stood out for me is how Netcells keeps you posted through every step. We never wondered about anything. We were kept in the loop the entire time. "
"Feedback was quick and easy, the personel are so friendly and helpfull and well trained. We always knew what was happening next and everything was on time and the whole process was just easy and flawless."
"We want the best for our kids. We see this as an investment more than just additional insurance for their future health. Science and technology develop rapidly; who knows what benefits this investment will bring them someday?"
"The online registration and payment process was seamless, convenient and easy to use. In addition to the excellent online service, Netcell members were a pleasure to work with, with constant communication via WhatsApp and telephone calls. Service was friendly, informative & compassionate."
"My wife has an autoimmune disease of Multiple Sclerosis; who knows where medical advancements will take us in the future? My wife and I felt it was definitely worth the cost."
"As soon as the national lockdown was implemented, we received a phone call from the Netcells team reassuring us that the service would continue as usual. It gave us peace of mind during a stressful time. We appreciated the friendly reassurance without us even having to ask for it."
"We see it as a life policy that we have taken out for our son. Knowing that his stem cells may save his life if needed gives us peace of mind. Or else, donating it one day to save another child’s life would make us happy too."
"For the minor financial investment and the potential benefits, should something happen. It is a proverbial no-brainer decision."
"We decided to bank our daughters stem cells so that we don't have the guilt of saying 'we should have done it' if she ever has a disease that could be cured by stem cells. Netcells was incredibly helpful throughout to process and we never had any issue trying to get in contact with them. They took great care with our childs 'get out of jail free card'."
"The research that is constantly being done on stem cells means that we could have cures for so many things in the future. We want to give our daughter the very best chance in life. You can never be too prepared."
"It was so convenient from beginning to end. Ordering and paying online to receive the box the same week and their speedy response to collect the samples the morning after my 9 pm emergency cesarean delivery."
"We wanted to help secure our son's healthy future should he become ill. Our firstborn, Colton was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at two years old and was told it was autoimmune, so we did not do stem Cells for him. We would like to invest in the future health of our secondborn, Brody, from any illnesses and hope that stem cells will help lead us to live a healthy life for Brody and our firstborn."
"Professional, caring, understanding, and committed is an understatement. Thank you for the awesome service provided and for the peace of mind given during my journey of uncertainty. What an amazing team and company I must say."
"The prompt response and super friendly staff. No matter what we asked, it was treated as important and professional."
"I just wanted to say that you and your team do an amazing job. Thank you for being so efficient and quick to reply. For going the extra mile sending it to the USA, and for planning so meticulously to ensure that it reached there on time. I can highly recommend your company. We are happy to report all is fine with out beautiful baby boy!"
