Maintaining sperm at the proper temperature is really important and hard to do without the right staff and equipment. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place! Cryobio has the staff and equipment and has been successfully storing frozen sperm for over 30 years.
We provide storage for our Open or Non-ID Release donor sperm vials. You can store it by the month, the year, for two years, or for five years, or even longer. If you store Cryobio donor sperm at our facility and you don’t use it within two years, you can take advantage of our buy-back policy and get a partial refund.
We can also provide storage for Directed Donor (known donor) sperm vials. We include one year of directed donor storage fees in the fees you pay for the whole Directed Donor testing and screening process. Contact us for more information about the Directed Donor process.
We also store frozen sperm for people who have done Fertility Preservation with Reproductive Diagnostics, our sister company that provides andrology laboratory services and reproductive tissue storage.
All clients storing sperm must complete and sign a sperm storage agreement. When you are ready to use your sperm, contact us to complete the required paperwork and set up shipping. We can ship all over the United States. If you are ready to stop storing the sperm, contact us to complete the required paperwork and we can discard the sperm or transfer possession of the sperm to someone else
Reasons to store donor sperm vial(s) with Cryobio:
- Family planning. You should ask your doctor how many vials you should order and store so that you have enough sperm for multiple attempts at pregnancy. You should also consider ordering enough so you can have future siblings if siblings from the same donor are part of your family plan.
- Postponed treatment. Unfortunately, sometimes your procedure will be postponed and you won’t be able to use the sperm within the time that it will remain frozen in the shipping tank. If this happens within 7 days of shipping, you can return the frozen sperm to Cryobio to be stored with us and used later. We put the sperm into storage under your name, and then when you are ready to use it, we will ship it back to your doctor. You are responsible for paying fees for storage and return shipping.
- ART treatment. When you are preparing for ART treatment, your doctor and the embryology laboratory may require you to provide a backup sample that will be frozen and stored in case it is needed during treatment.
- Doctor’s office doesn’t provide storage. If your doctor’s office doesn’t have the equipment to store sperm, we can store it and ship it as you need it. We ship sperm in nitrogen vapor tanks that can maintain sperm at the proper temperature for 7 days. The best way to protect frozen sperm is to keep it in the shipping tank until 30 minutes before intended use. Your doctor’s office may be able to keep your sperm frozen and stored, but not all doctor’s offices have storage facilities. Be sure you check with your doctor’s office about this before you schedule shipping.
