Take full advantage of future tech

Future healthspan-extending medical technologies are still decades away from widespread use. The problem?
They won't work well on old cells.

Here are just a few in development right now:

Gene therapies

CRISPR is one of the largest breakthroughs in recent science. This gene editing technique allows us to make cellular modifications more precisely and on a larger scale than ever before.

Organ regeneration

Organ regeneration is amongst the most popular topics in research today. It will be invluable for the future repair and replacement of failing organs.

Stem Cells

Stem cells have vast regenerative abilities; with the ability to become any cell type of the body, they're a fundamental building block for many other theraputics.

More on the way

Biotechnology is advancing rapidly -- entirely new theraputic avenues are just around the corner.


As you age, your cells are accumulating irreversible damage.
They'll never be as youthful as they are right now.

The Acorn service

Acorn is the first take-home human cell cryopreservation service.
Here are the advantages to what we offer:

Young cell cryopreservation

We freeze your cells, keeping them safe, viable, and compatible with future theraputics.

Take-Home Kit

Collect your cells at home and send them back to us. No doctors or medical professionals required - it's that easy.

Non-invasive approach

You can collect all the cells you need non-invasively. That's the Acorn way.

Safe, prolonged, secure

We'll always use storage redundancies to ensure your cells are secured indefinitely.

Theraputics of the Future

When you need your cells, we'll send them out to medical professionals of your choice to use with advanced therapies.

Fully Informed

We'll keep you informed of all the latest advancements in the industry, so you won't miss out.

About Us

Our Video

Our Story

Acorn was born out of the University of Waterloo's incubator, Velocity Science, which allowed us to kickstart our laboratory efforts. We have sinced moved into Toronto's Discovery District after accumulating funding from Velocity, the Accelerator Centre, and Y-Combinator's Fellowship program. We're continually develeping new relationships with investors, scientists, and advisors in the region.

We're passionate about the future of biotechnology and can't wait for what's yet to come. Our dream starts with preservation, but eventually, we hope to expand and take part in longevity research ourselves.
