Frequently Asked Questions

The prices for semen analysis services at Cryobank America are $100 for the Basic Semen Analysis and $200 for the Complete Semen Analysis.

Specimens are produced by self-masturbation in one of our private collection rooms. Viewing content on our flat screen televisions is provided in each collection room, however you are allowed to bring in your own literature, laptops, or cellular phones if you prefer to utilize your own content.

At this time, Cryobank America does not accept specimens produced outside of the office for analysis purposes. Since sperm cells start to deteriorate and die once they are exposed to air outside of the body, Cryobank America requires specimen’s to be produced in-office to ensure the most accurate results.

The most common factors affecting sperm health include health and lifestyle influences. environmental influences, and medical reasons. These include drug use, alcohol use, tobacco use, overheating the testicles, weight, stress, exposure to hazardous and industrial chemicals, heavy metals, radiation including x-rays, cancer of the testicles, hormone and steroid imbalances, physical problems affecting the reproductive system, genetic disorders, and certain medications.

Some important things a man can do to improve his sperm health include keeping the testicles cool, stay hydrated, reduce alcohol consumption, quit smoking, reduce stress, and taking vitamins such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Zinc, D-Aspartic Acid supplements, and Folic Acid supplements.

Raw Sample

This is a specimen that is produced and examined within one hour after ejaculation. This is a specimen in it’s purest form that does not undergo further processing.

Post-Process Sample

This is a specimen that has been processed in the laboratory to reduce the number of non-motile or “dead cells” and other contaminants such as round cells, red blood cells, and white blood cells.

Post-Thaw Sample

This is a specimen that has undergone a full laboratory process then subsequently cryogenically frozen. This sample is then thawed back to liquid form and another analysis is performed. This will let you know how well your specimen preserves and survives the cryogenic storage process.

It is the total weight of a specimen that is produced, measured in milliliters (ml).

This is the measure of acidity (alkalinity) in the semen sample. Since the vagina provides a normally acidic environment, semen should be more basic than neutral to counteract the alkalinity.

Viscosity is the measurement of the seminal fluid’s resistance to flow. Abnormally high viscosity can be the result of abnormal prostate function.

These cells represent the presence of non-spermatozoa cells found in the semen sample.

This is the measurement of total number of sperm cells found in a 1ML volume sample.

This is the total number of sperm cells for the individual ejaculate, including both motile and non-motile spermatozoa.

This is the total number of progressively motile sperm counts found in the individual ejaculate.

Also called “percent motility”, this is the total percentage of progressively motile sperm cells observed as compared to the total sperm concentration.

This is the observed speed of the progressively motile sperm cells.

A “0” indicates an absence of any forward progression.

A “1 – 1.5” indicates poor movement, weak or lethargic forward progression.

A “2.0 – 2.5” indicates moderate movement, with some forward progression.

A “3.0 – 3.5” indicates good movement, showing definite forward progression.

A “4.0” indicates excellent movement, showing strong rapid forward progression.

Morphology classifies sperm as a useful indicator of exposure to environmental and occupational toxicants. In this analysis, the size and shape of the sperm is examined for abnormalities such as head, mid piece, or tail defects.
