Prepare for the future of regenerative medicine. Store your best cells today.Bank Your Cells
The future of regenerative medicine is happening right now, and it’s harnessing the power of our own cells to overcome the biggest health challenges of our lifetimes.
Cell-based treatments are most effective with our youngest possible cells. This makes it more important than ever to collect and preserve our best cells today.
By plucking your hair, we collect and freeze your cells for a lifetime of storage. This pauses aging on cells that are completely and uniquely matched with you.
Starting with a simple collection of hair follicles, we store all the cells you’ll need to unlock stem cell-based treatment and therapies.
Administed at home or in a partner clinic, the non-invasive process of plucking hair provides all the required genetic material.
Upon arrival at the Acorn lab, we thoroughly examine the collection and deliver you a report confirming the viability of your cells.
Using cryopreservation, we freeze your cells to a temperature of -196°C. This ensures that they stay healthy and viable for your lifetime.
You are in control of your cells. They will be healthy and ready to use for any cell-based treatment you require in the future.
During my medical training, we were taught cryopreservation, regenerative medicine and personalized genomics, but there were no tangible solutions for patients. Now, with Acorn, patients are able to save a sample of their cells today to have access to the next generation of healthcare. I am already excited by all of the amazing work that Acorn has achieved, and there is still so much to come.
"For the Toronto-based company, the pitch isn’t just around banking genetic material…. It’s about making that process cheaper and easier."
"Acorn’s method allows for full genome collection without the need for surgery or other invasive procedures, aiming to make stem cell collection significantly more affordable and accessible."

Freeze the clock on your cells and join our community of personal cell bankers.
We treat your cells like they will save your life one day. Care is taken at every step of the process to make sure the safety and privacy are never compromised.
Cells are stored with vault-like security, 24-7 monitoring, and back-up systems. We operate within ISO standards for cell processing.
Our database security adheres to the highest standards for sensitive data protection, ensuring the safety of your data.
All cells stored with Acorn remain the sole property of the person banking the cells. All analysis, storage and access are only done with client consent.
Acorn is committed to a culture of transparency. This means you can find out what we’re doing at every step with every cell.
I’m an avid runner and I plan to keep up an active lifestyle for as long as possible. Having experienced sports injuries in the past, I wanted to make sure I have my best cells available to help treat any future wear and tear.
Over the past decade, I’ve invested a lot in the health and appearance of my skin. The potential of accessing younger collagen directly from my own cells is something I want to be ready for.
I thought that umbilical cord banking was the only way to preserve cells for stem cell therapies. Finding out that I can save my younger adult cells by plucking my hair was a real game-changer. I only wish I had done it sooner.
Whether you’re looking to preserve a collection of your best cells or fully decode your personal genomic information, we have the tools to do both.
