  • VIALS
  • We recommend purchasing at least 5 vials per child to guarantee your donor remains available until reaching your personal family goals. (cryobank.com)
  • We have thousands of clients forced to choose between a new donor or not having a second child because they chose not to store vials for future use while they were available. (cryobank.com)
  • Relative to an IUI vial, IVF vials contain a smaller volume of sample, and therefore a proportionally smaller number of motile sperm, making them most suitable for IVF/ICSI procedures. (cryobank.com)
  • They contain a smaller quantity of the same high quality sperm found in our IUI Premium Vials. (cryobank.com)
  • Providing IVF vials in pairs helps to ensure you have an adequate number of sperm needed for IVF on the day of your procedure. (cryobank.com)
  • Our IUI Premium Vials & ICI Premium Vials contain more sperm than is necessary for IVF or ICSI, but they are suitable to use. (cryobank.com)
  • Vials for restricted donors are not eligible for buyback. (cryobank.com)
  • recruit
  • CCB's four donor labs are spread across the country, allowing us to not only recruit from many of the country's top universities (UCLA, USC, Stanford, Harvard, MIT)*, but also from the major metropolitan cities surrounding them. (cryobank.com)
  • The Chinese government is using social media to recruit sperm donors, according to a report in the New York Times. (bionews.org.uk)
  • eggs
  • With the rise of consumer genetic testing, it is now possible for people to accidentally discover that they were conceived using donor eggs or sperm and for donors who thought they were anonymous to be traced by their offspring. (bionews.org.uk)
  • Screening
  • High educational and physical standards, personal and family medical history, multiple semen and blood analyses, genetic screening , and a series of extensive interviews are used to find the highest caliber sperm donations possible. (cryobank.com)
  • The latest case highlights the importance of thoroughly screening sperm donors, according to the report and an editorial published with it in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association. (freerepublic.com)
  • Note that the investigators call for improved screening guidelines for gamete donors and a national database of donor information. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The researchers say the findings call for improved genetic screening guidelines for gamete donors and a national database of donor information. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Guidelines from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine recommend genetic screening for gamete donors, but compliance is voluntary. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The screening process generally also includes a quarantine period, during which samples are frozen and stored for at least 6 months after which the donor will be re-tested for STIs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Donors of Jewish, Québécois, or Cajun descent may also get genetic testing for the carrier trait of Tay Sachs disease, but there is significant variation in screening for other disorders that occur with increased frequency in this population. (wikipedia.org)
  • Donor screening for cytomegalovirus (CMV) is carried out by testing for IgG antibodies against CMV that are produced if the donor ever has contracted CMV, which is the case in between 50% and 80% of adults. (wikipedia.org)
  • This may be explained by the fact that sperm banks only accept donors who have good semen quality, and because of the rigorous screening procedures which they adopt, including a typical age limitation on sperm donors, often limiting sperm donors to the ages of 21-39 (see paternal age effect), and genetic and health screening of donors. (wikipedia.org)
  • birth defect
  • A donor applicant is disqualified from participation in the donor program if there is a family history which indicates that his offspring may have a significantly increased risk for a birth defect or genetic condition, as compared to the general population risks. (cryobank.com)
  • fathers
  • I'm not talking about most fathers, of course, just the ones who essentially say they got tricked-they just gave sperm, or they just had sex, and didn't intend to become fathers at all. (slate.com)
  • infection
  • However, the risk of acquiring CMV infection from an antibody-positive sperm donor is believed to be extremely low, at least where sperm banks perform follow-up tests on antibody-positive donors for type IgM antibodies that indicate current or recent CMV infection, and where sperm preparations are performed that decrease the amount of white blood cells in the samples, e.g. in samples prepared for IUI. (wikipedia.org)
  • quality
  • In general, our findings seem to suggest that what matters most for children's outcomes in solo-mother families is not the absence of a father, nor donor conception , but the quality of parenting, and positive parent-child relationships,' said Dr Zadeh. (bionews.org.uk)
  • We are committed to providing the highest quality, most tested donor sperm. (fairfaxcryobank.com)
  • clinics
  • Most clinics impose a limit on the number of different families that can use sperm from the same donor. (sharedjourney.com)
  • Washing techniques are developing that purify sperm from viral load of HIV and hepatitis C, but nevertheless clinics do not offer sperm from carriers of significant STIs. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • They also suggested recording donor information in a national, searchable database to easily identify and notify any affected offspring if a genetic disorder is found. (medpagetoday.com)
  • given
  • You have taken away much of my anxiety away and given me a greater piece of mind regarding the donor we plan to use in the next few months. (fairfaxcryobank.com)
  • father
  • House says she needs a bone marrow transplant and while they're looking for a donor, Dylan goes into House's office and says he can be the donor as he is her father. (wikipedia.org)
