About Vita 34

Innovative pioneer work

Founded in Leipzig in 1997 as the first private umbilical cord blood bank in Europe, Vita 34 is a full-range supplier of cryo-preservation and provides for the logistics to collect the blood, the preparation and the storage of stem cells from umbilical cord blood and tissue. Stem cells are a valuable source material for medical cell therapies. They are kept alive at temperatures of around minus 180 degrees Celsius to be able to apply them within the scope of medical treatment, when needed. More than 280.000 customers from Germany and 20 other countries already have opened stem cell deposits with Vita 34, thus providing for the health of their children.

Since 1997, we have been not only storing umbilical cord blood, but have set standards through our experience, our research, and our innovations.” Dr. Wolfgang Knirsch (CEO)

Experienced chemists, biologists, biotechnologists, specialized physicians and professional medical/technical assistants have made Vita 34 into that what it is today – the German specialist for stem cells from umbilical cord blood and tissue. For almost 20 years we have not only been storing umbilical cord blood, rather we have set standards with our experience, research and innovations, far beyond the borders of Germany.
