Personal biobanking @ GoodCell
Using your own cells, we can identify, track and respond to your health information in an actionable way over time. You create your account in The GoodCell Dashboard, schedule a blood-draw and the sample will be safely packaged to ship for processing.
Once received at GoodCell’s state-of-the-art, FDA-registered CLIA/CAP certified lab and biorepository, we isolate and preserve three components of the blood sample: cells, DNA and blood plasma. Your sample is tested to inform genetic predisposition and additional blood testing is completed.

As you grow older, your body begins to experience age-related decline. In addition to cosmetic changes like losing your hair or getting wrinkles, our muscles grow weaker, our bones lose density, and our immune system’s ability to fight disease wanes. Like the rest of our body, our stem cells age with time.
Over the last 20 years, scientific and clinical research have demonstrated that our stem cells are not only critical for maintaining our health, but they may be uniquely effective in treating many age-related diseases. Your stem cells are unique to your own immunology. Your immune system is trained to recognize and protect your body from foreign cells. Consequently it will often reject donor cells in time. All this is to say, your young and healthy stem cells are an invaluable asset to you.
By cryopreserving just a fraction of your stem cells today, you can stop the clock on a bank of your youngest stem cells so that you can draw upon your own youth in the future. Cryopreservation has been used to store many types of living tissue for decades, such as umbilical cord stem cells, embryos, sperm and ovarian cells.
Using similar methods, Forever Labs cryopreserves your young stem cells for use in treating future age-related medical issues. It’s like stem cell time travel.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Stem cells are at the core of how the body repairs and heals itself everyday. There are already stem cell treatments available for certain blood-borne diseases, and more are underway for other diseases such as macular degeneration and Parkinson’s disease.
