Our bodies are made up of trillions of tiny living units called cells that work together as a team to keep you alive. Recent advancements have allowed doctors to convert your own adult cells into stem cells. And scientists are really excited by their huge potential to help tackle some of the biggest challenges in medicine. Cells have, and will continue to become, a resource for doctors to identify, treat, and even eradicate disease. Your own cells will be the next currency in healthcare.
Acorn allows you to collect cells by simply plucking the hair on your head. No traveling to a clinic. No physician required. No surgery. Much less expensive. Capture your valuable cells from the comfort of your own home.
Acorn makes cell cryopreservation easy and affordable with the world’s first non-invasive, at-home, live cell collection kit.
Our state of the art laboratory analyzes hair samples and processes viable cells for storage.
Cells are kept at cryogenic temperatures in a highly secure, advanced facility for future use.
Your privacy, our concern
Our database security adheres to gold standards for sensitive data protection to protect your rights and privacy. Rest assured that your information is secure.
Secure Storage for life
Cells are stored with vault-like security, 24-7 monitoring and back-up systems. We operate within ISO standards for cell processing. The facility is routinely audited by accreditation and regulatory auditors.
