    Specimen Quality Standards


    California Cryobank is committed to providing donor semen specimens of the highest quality. The Cryobank evaluates each specimen prior to release to ensure that it meets our high quality standards. A post thaw analysis of sperm count and motility is included with every donor specimen shipment. IUI specimens are processed and ready for intrauterine insemination.

    *Variation in sperm counting can range 15 - 30% based on different laboratories, individual medical personnel and counting methods. It is possible that the values obtained by your lab will be less than our guaranteed minimum. This does not necessarily indicate that the specimen is substandard. The Cryobank makes allowances for analytical variations when determining if the specimen is eligible for credit.
