About Us

For over 30 years, family building
has been our family business.

Cryobio was founded in 1989 by Dr. Bill Baird, a scientist with a PhD in reproductive biology.  At the time, Dr. Baird was running an in vitro fertilization laboratory and he was dissatisfied with the donor sperm samples available.  This dissatisfaction led him to realize there was a demand for reliable, high-quality donor sperm samples.

Over the years, we have continued to adapt to the changing needs of those who wish to build the family using donor sperm. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our honest, transparent, warm, family-friendly approach to this very personal business.

For the 30 years it has been in existence, Cryobio has been led by Dr. Baird, with assistance from our laboratory supervisor with a MS in reproduction, Donna Ridder.  Along with Cryobio, this same team leads Reproductive Diagnostics, an ART laboratory associated with a leading fertility practice in Ohio.  The duo has been involved in various reproductive professional societies, including the reproductive tissue council of the American Association of Tissue Banks, and the recent task force that was formed by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology to address reproductive tissue cryopreservation and storage issues.

With our leadership working in the infertility and ART field for over 30 years, Cryobio knows what it takes to provide, as Dr. Baird would say, “a great sperm sample, that will give our clients the best chance of getting pregnant, having a baby, and creating a family.”

Besides providing donor sperm, Cryobio specializes in directed (known) donor processing, which allows us to help you create your family with someone you know.  We do this by working with your doctor’s office and testing, processing, freezing, and then shipping sperm throughout the country.  Along with directed donor processing, Cryobio provides fertility preservation for people who may be going through a multitude of health or social changes.  Fertility preservation lets you maintain your ability to have biological children in the future, even when your health or life prevents it now.

Cryobio is in the family business.  This idea is especially true as we begin continuing into the second generation, with Dr. Baird’s children becoming involved in the infertility field and taking part in Cryobio’s operations.  The continuance allows our donors and clients to have confidence that their records will stay safe and ensures that Cryobio will be providing donor sperm, directed donor processing, and fertility preservation for many years to come.

Cryobio’s small, hands-on staff allows us to truly get to know our donors and our clients.  This, along with our combination of education, experience, and continuity of care is what makes Cryobio exceptional.
