WHAT WE DO

We freeze the clock on your cells to ready you for the future of personalized healthcare, regenerative medicine and genetics.

Your cells.
Your future.

We are excited about the future of human technology. Along with virtual reality, self-driving cars, and voyages to Mars. Medical and genetic engineering technologies will flourish. In anticipation of this, we cryopreserve young human cells as inputs and templates for use with our older bodies to help improve our quality of life and longevity.

HOW WE DO IT

Live Cell Collection, Analysis & Cryopreservation

1. Live Cell Collection

Use our home-kit, our live cell collection events, or visit our headquarters. Acorn makes cell collection easy and accessible. It's as easy as plucking a few hairs from your head.

2. Analysis

Once collected, our lab uses advanced science to analyse your cells and ensure they are bacteria free and viable for future cell therapy and regenerative medicine. That means we ensure collected cells are healthy and ready for cryopreservation.

3. Cryopreservation

Using proven cryopreservation technology, Acorn freezes the clock on your cells to a temperature of -196°C. This ensures that they stay healthy and viable for your lifetime.

WE COLLECT AND CRYOPRESERVE PLUCKED HAIR

Until now, traditional methods of accessing cells for stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine have involved expensive and painful trips to clinics for complex medical procedures such as bone marrow harvesting, liposuction or venous blood draws. But did you know that your simple plucked hair contains a bulb rich in cells that can also be leveraged in a much less invasive and pain-free way?

The Hair Follicle

Your own plucked hair has a bulb which is a valuable cluster of cells. It contains dead cells, but also many live cells. Some of these cells are differentiated somatic cells, and yet others are actually stem cells. Science can convert any cell today into stem cells using iPSC technology. When you combine that innovation with Acorn’s proprietary method of keeping living cells viable in transport, your hair follicles become a very valuable, accessible resource for regenerative medicine.
