LAB: Click Here for Sample Thawing Protocol
Cryobiology, Inc. is committed to providing a high-quality cryopreserved donor sperm sample with a post thaw recovery you can count on.
Sperm count and estimation of motility are subjective processes and are known to vary by technician, training, and experience, counting chamber used, thawing technique, and even temperature. Always use our recommended Thawing Protocol.
Here is our guidance for Expected Post Thaw Recovery for comparison purposes only:
IUI (IntraUterine insemination) Samples.
ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) Samples (Not Available on All Donors)
Note: ICSI (IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection) should be used with ART samples; we do not recommend the use of ART samples for standard oocyte insemination in IVF (IVF without ICSI). ART vials are not recommended for use in artificial insemination since they contain fewer motile sperm than IUI vials.
ICI (IntraCervical Insemination) Samples (Only Available on Donors Frozen Before 1998)
Note: ICI samples cannot be used for IUI or ART without additional processing since they contain seminal plasma. Processing will reduce the number of motile sperm cells available for insemination.
Replacement Procedure: If samples appear to contain significantly fewer motile sperm cells than described above, please Contact Cryobiology immediately. We will:
