BioEDEN is the world’s first international private stem cell storage bank to collect, assess and cryogenically store living tooth cells from deciduous baby teeth.
Founded in 2006, BioEDEN has stem cell processing laboratories in the UK (serving Europe, India and the Middle East) and in the USA (serving North & Central America, South Africa and South Korea).
BioEDEN specialises in the preservation of tooth stem cells. Our UK facility is regulated by the Human Tissue Authority (HTA), and we hold a full license.

Stem cells from teeth (mesenchymal stem cells) are different from those found in cord blood (hematopoietic stem cells). Cord blood cells can be used to treat blood disorders such as leukaemia, but stem cells from teeth are different. Stem cells from teeth can be used to grow a range of tissues including bone, nerve, fat, muscle and cartilage and may one day be used to grow entire organs. It is widely believed that stem cells will be used to treat a wide variety of diseases and injuries within the next decade.
