• Over 25 Years of Sperm Banking Experience

Cryobiology, Inc. was founded in 1989 by a PhD lab director in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) in response to a demand for reliably high quality, tested and quarantined anonymous donor sperm samples. Over the years, we have continued to adapt to the changing needs of all those who wish to build a family using donor sperm.

The majority of our donors are students at local universities, most in graduate or professional schools, who collect samples in the program for approximately one year. Cryobiology's high standards for donor acceptance mean that  less than 10% of potential donors  are accepted into the program. At the same time, our donor samples meet or exceed all applicable mandatory and voluntary industry standards for quality and prevention of disease transmission.

Why Choose Cryobiology?

Cryobiology, Inc.  continues to be a leader in donor selection because we:

  • Prepare donor sperm vials that contain more motile sperm cells than anyone else in the industry.
  • Ensure all donors posted on our website are available.
  • Design our services to provide physicians and clients with the warmth of a small business and the benefit of our years of experience in what works and what matters.
  • Pioneered a Limited Availability section of our donor list to alert physicians and patients when the number of vials of a particular donor gets low. 
  • Excel in labeling our vials for the convenience of our users. Our color coding on each vial indicates donor ethnicity. Many of our competitors now have similar policies in place.
  • Have three geographically separate locations for donor intake, sperm freezing and donor screening and testing (Columbus, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and Wilmington, NC. This allows for diversity in our donors geographically, ethnically and in education and interests.
  • Ensure that all of our locations are staffed by well-trained technicians and under the direction of a board certified High Complexity Lab Director who has worked in sperm banking for his whole career. Each site adheres to the highest regulatory standards for tissue banking and laboratory quality.
