Quality Sperm

At Cryobank America, we strive to maintain the industry’s highest standards for donor screening, testing, semen processing, and storage to provide quality, motile sperm. Our operations are fully licensed and inspected to ensure the best opportunity for a trustworthy and positive pregnancy in the future.

Each donor is identified through a biometric identification device and is compared to facial photographs, which are stored on-site to ensure proper proof of identity.

In addition to these quality assurance practices, Cryobank America leads the industry in providing the highest sperm counts per vial, increasing your chances of successful conception.
