Infertility rates are increasing and more and more couples or women are undergoing assisted reproduction treatment. For some of them, such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, it is sometimes necessary to go to a sperm bank.
In a sperm bank, the sperm is collected, frozen and stored. That is, it is maintained in the best conditions so that, when the time comes, it can be used by people who want to make the dream of being a parent come true.
Another function is to preserve a man’s own sperm to use in the future. The sperm bank is based on the cryopreservation technique. The conservation and maintenance of the seminal samples are subjected to temperatures of -196ºC (liquid nitrogen bath) to be applied later in the different techniques of assisted reproduction.
The donation of semen is a voluntary, solidary and altruistic act. A healthy man with good sperm quality puts his sperm at the service of science and assisted reproduction techniques with the aim of making the desired pregnancy of women and couples who have fertility problems come true.
All our donors, comply with a very rigorous process that is why we choose the donors that have each and every one of the important criteria with this to ensure exceptional individuals for our donation program.
Our samples are subjected to various studies and are released after a period of 6 months of quarantine to ensure that the sample is safe and of quality.
In the sperm bank we manage strict quality control programs for the study of the donors who participate in the semen bank program; These consist of psychological, psychometric evaluations, genetic studies and laboratory tests such as:
Complete panel for Hepatitis B and C
Profile of drugs.
HTLV I and II
All of the above is done before the donor enters the program and six months later they go back to carry out studies to avoid that the donor is in the window period of infectious diseases.
