I am moderately sure I've seen an advertisement for at least
one company that is handling the preservation aspect. I can't
remember the name, but I think it was in Virginia or North Carolina.
It is a logical branch off from the sperm/egg/embryo "banking" centers.

They could handle the storage, I'm not sure about taking the samples.

The next time I've got a chance to talk with the Kronos people,
I'll be mention this to them as a logical extension. They
have the doctors and are willing to put you through a lot of
pain on their initial workups (treadmills, etc.), so going an
extra yard to get the bone marrow/biopsy samples would probably
be only a modest extension of the required sadism.
