Swiss Stem Cell Bank

Hi,

we are due to have a child in the next few months and a friend has recommended we store the newborn's stem cells i.e. umbilical cord as an "insurance". I've been reading up on this and the advantages are pretty evident if not even for the "what if" physcological factor.

I was looking and in Switzerland there is Swiss Stem Cell Bank (http://www.stembank.ch/home.aspx?ln=ENG). Anybody ever had any experience with these them? Anybody know other Stem Cell storage facilities in Switzerland?

thanks
