• Donor Semen

    Trust Experience

    Choosing the right sperm bank makes choosing the right sperm donor easy. Since 1977, California Cryobank has set the standard for genetic screening, specimen quality, and customer service while providing an unmatched selection of premium donor sperm.

    You have turned to California Cryobank to help you with one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and we are proud to work hand-in-hand with you to help realize your dream. The reputation for success we have built over almost forty years in reproductive and sperm bank services speaks to the value we place in the process; every detail matters in ensuring that you will ultimately have the best experience possible.

    Choosing A Sperm Donor

    Obviously choosing a sperm donor is a significant decision and one that takes some time. At California Cryobank we first set a solid foundation from which you can begin to make your choice; and that foundation is built on our stringent, industry leading screening process for donor sperm. First and foremost, we actively recruit donors from top US universities who must meet our basic requiremments:

    • Must be at least 5'9" or taller
    • Between 19-38 years old
    • Attending a 4-year University or holding a Bachelor's or Advanced Degree
    • Must be in good health
    • Legally allowed to work in the US

    Again, these are only our basic requirements. Those who meet these requirements may then be considered to move onto the next step which is our qualification process; the standards of which see only 1% of applicants ultimately accepted into our donor sperm program. Our qualification process conforms to our unwavering benchmarks by which potential sperm donations are measured and includes everything from extensive medical testing to genetic screening that allow for the best insemination procedures further down the road.

    CCB Proudly Features:

    • Almost 40 years of experience in successful donor insemination pregnancies
    • The industry's largest and most diverse donor selection
    • High standards which allow less than 1% of applicants into our donor program
    • FDA registration and compliance
    • Accreditation by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB)
    • Full-time genetic counselors on staff

    The process of donor sperm  qualification at California Cryobank is extensive to be sure. But everything that we do is to maintain our standards of excellence so that we can offer our members the best of the best at all times.

    Specimen Preparations
    California Cryobank offers two types of specimen preparations:

    • Intracervical insemination (ICI) specimens (standard unwashed)
    • Intrauterine insemination (IUI) specimens (pre-washed prior to freezing)

    Specimen Categories

    • Premium specimens
    • Assisted Reproductive Technology (A.R.T.) Specimens specially designed for use in procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), GIFT, ZIFT and ICSI (intercytoplasmic sperm injection). A.R.T. vials contain fewer total motile cells due to fewer sperm being required for these procedures.

    Please consult with your physician regarding which type of specimen you will need and the number of specimens you should order. Existing clients must update their Authorization for Release of Semen Form prior to ordering A.R.T. vials, to ensure your physician is aware of the specimen type you plan to order. A.R.T. vials may not be available for all CCB donors.
