What is your Family Limit?
Our limit is 25 families globally. To make it even more selective we have implemented it to one donor family per 500,000 population. We track this by keeping in contact with the recipient and having them agree to notify us if they move from one area so we can keep it updated on our records.
Can I do an insemination at home, without a Doctor?
Yes. You will still need to be registered to purchase though and all of the same steps are required for registration. Your doctor needs to sign your paperwork but you can do the insemination on your own, at home. Please contact Cryobank America or your Physician for more details.
How are the semen specimens packaged and shipped?
We send the specimens in liquid nitrogen “dry shipper” MVE tanks via UPS or local courier. The specimens are guaranteed in the dry shipper tanks for 7 days from the date shipped. Shipments within the United States are sent using 2-day or overnight courier service. If you are local, we offer free delivery and pick-up* in the DFW metroplex. For pickup, we require at least 72-hours notice. Please
*See our pricing page for additional local pick-up options by
How does Cryobank America process semen and why?
Cryobank America uses a density gradient method for processing. And while it more time consuming and expensive we believe that this the optimal method and research has proven that by using this method we are able to exclude most abnormal motile cells thus providing the best results and reducing camping complications that may arise from insemination.
What is the difference between Screening and Testing?
A screening test is given to those who have no symptoms of the condition in question. An example would be measurement of cholesterol levels in people who have no symptoms of cardiovascular disease. When a person does have symptoms, however, the picture changes, as the chance of uncovering something meaningful to health is considerably more likely once a person has a symptom or is at higher risk of a condition. Risk is best determined by a doctor when he or she checks your physical condition and "takes a history" -- asks about your signs, symptoms, and medical history in a complete and thorough way.
A diagnostic test is used to confirm a suspected condition once initial testing has revealed its possibility. Diagnostic tests are often more expensive and risky than initial tests. However, their usefulness should far outweigh their risk, or they should not be undertaken.
