Cryos NY understands the importance of providing quality information about its donors from medical, physical and psychological viewpoints. Additionally, the company understands the large financial commitment involved with artificial inseminations and therefore does not charge for additional donor information. Clients may access via the Cryos NY donor search on its website Extended Donor Profiles, Staff Impressions, and Baby Photos of its American donors. There are a few Danish donors that are available for sale within the United States that do not have any additional donor information. Extended Donor Profiles are required forms completed by all Cryos NY donors that provide clients with more detailed information such as interests, personalities, education levels achieved, family-trees, and medical histories (if applicable). Most of these Extended Donor Profiles provide a hand-written note from the donor explaining his motivation for donating. Staff Impressions are documents written about each specific donor by a staff member of Cryos NY. These Staff Impressions offer clients another view of the donor from a different perspective. Baby Photos are photos of the donors ranging from ages 3-6 months to 5-6 years. In some cases, Cryos NY will have adult photos of Non-Anonymous Donors (please see below for definition).If you are interested in finding out more information on the donors, please do not hesitate to contact a Cryos NY Sales Associate at +1(212) 430-5950. All donors at the time of entering the company's donor program are required to complete a Donor Agreement. This agreement is the standard agreement informing the donor of his responsibilities as a sperm donor. Every donor relinquishes his paternal rights for children born of his specimens. Additionally, at this time donors decide whether they will be an Anonymous or Non-Anonymous (Open Identity) donor. Anonymous Donors are donors that decide to have their personal information restricted to Cryos personnel only and never to be disclosed to a third party. Non-Anonymous Donors (Open Identity) are donors that decide to have their personal information disclosed to children born of their specimens when that child reaches the age of 18 years.
The decision to choose an Anonymous Donor or a Non-Anonymous Donor is a very difficult decision to make. The decision is to be made by the parents-to-be and Cryos NY will in no way try to influence the decision. Please keep in mind that various countries developed legislation making it illegal to purchase Non-Anonymous Donor semen while others have outlawed the purchase of Anonymous Donor semen. For more information on Anonymous Donors and Non-Anonymous Donors please visit the Donor Sibling Registry at http://donorsiblingregistry.com. This website will allow potential clients to connect with existing parents that purchased both anonymous and non-anonymous donor semen for artificial insemination from any sperm bank worldwide. Cryos NY is not responsible for the quality of information provided by the Donor Sibling Registry.
Cryos NY determines its motile sperm count on the number of linear and non-linear forward progression sperm.
Fertility Specialists/Doctors/Clinics in the United States performing Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and/or Intracervical Insemination (ICI) treatments expect to see a range of motile sperm per insemination between 10 million and 20 million using no more than 1.0 mL of donor semen.
Based on packaging its specimens in 0.5 mL straws, Cryos NY suggests using the following number of straws per insemination:
*Cryos NY recommends speaking to your fertility clinic to discuss how many specimens should be purchased per insemination. Please keep in mind that donors will not always remain a Cryos NY donor. Some donors will discontinue donating because they have moved out of the New York City area, got married, or completed their 1-year commitment with Cryos NY. Therefore, the inventory of specific donor semen may not have a replenishment source. If you are considering having siblings with the same donor, Cryos NY suggests purchasing additional donor semen and having the specimens stored at either Cryos NY or your fertility clinic.
According to many fertility specialists, on average it takes 3-4 inseminations to achieve a successful pregnancy. Therefore, if you are considering siblings, Cryos NY suggests purhasing 6-8 straws per desired child.
Of course, we do. Cryos NY uses the term "Non-Anonymous" to define its Open Identity donors. A Non-Anonymous or Open Identity donor means that any children born of this donors specimen has the option at 18 years of age to find out the identity and contact information of the donor.
Given that Cryos NY ships specimens globally, it is imperative that Cryos NY meets the requirements and/or regulations of the countries to whom it ships. Cryos NY uses the term "Standard" to determine if a specimen is available for sale within the specific region. Below you will find the variouis "Standards" for its specimens:
European Countries(Excluding DK & UK)
New York State
Any specimens marked with the above "Standards" means that the specimens from the specific donor can be sold and used for artificial insemination within the borders of the region.
Yes, Cryos NY produces both ICI-Unwashed and IUI-Ready specimens.
An IUI-Ready specimen has been treated by a gradient centrifugation method where the prostaglandins and bacteria have been removed from the specimen.
MOT is the internal system used by Cryos International facilities worldwide to determine the number of motile sperm (sperm that swim in linear and non-linear forward progression). Below you will find the MOT classification according to the number of motile sperm per 0.5 mL straw for either ICI-Unwashed or IUI-Ready specimens:
Motile Sperm Count
2.5 million to 5 million
5 million to 9.5 million
10 million to 15 million
15 million to 20 million
20 million to 25 million
