At Cryobank America, we sell a few different types of sperm vials. Our goal is to help you determine which vial type is best for your situation.
Both Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and Intracervical Insemination (ICI) are considered artificial insemination procedures in which treatment for fertility is performed by using a vial (or tube) to reach the uterus for intrauterine insemination or the cervix for intracervical insemination.
At Cryobank America, we offer three tiers of vials, our traditional premium vial, A.R.T. vials, and IVF/ICSI vials.
Our traditional premium vials contain the highest number of motile cells per vial. IUI vials are targeted for 25 million cells per milliliter (25M/ml), and ICI vials are targeted for 17 million motile cells per milliliter (17M/ml).
A.R.T. vials, also called Artificial Reproductive Technology vials, are vial types that contain fewer motile sperm cells. Our IUI A.R.T. vials are targeted for a range of 6-24 million motile cells per milliliter, and our ICI A.R.T. vials are targeted for a range of 6-16 million motile cells per milliliter.
Lastly, our IVF/ICSI vials contain the fewest cells per vials, ranging from 1-5 million motile cells for each vial type. Though all it takes is a single sperm cell to fertilize the egg, we still recommend that IVF/ICSI vials are used for in-vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection procedures.
