Undoubtedly, sperm donor selection is extremely responsible process we carry out with the appropriate scrutiny. For potential donors, we compile a medical questionnaire and conduct the interviews to identify any risks in behavior or health problems.
First Egg Bank thoroughly select candidates for participation in our Sperm donation program due to strict complex pre-selection process based on:
- Absence of bad habits and negative phenotypical characteristics.
- Sperm quality.
- Age (20-40).
- Healthy biological child/children.
- 3-4 generation family health history.
- Higher education.
To help you to feel absolutely confident in your choice, we conduct strict complex of procedures that provide the highest quality of the samples and significantly increase the probability of successful insemination.
Sperm donor screening includes analysis of blood and urine:
- Complete blood count
- ABO-Rh blood typing
- HIV (1/2 types)
- RPR (Syphilis)
- Drugs and alcohol.
Besides, sperm donors undergo the urological check-up and General Practice examination. Crucially important criteria for probable donor is normospermia. Only by checking all these indications, First Egg Bank permits a candidate to participate in our donation program.
Sperm Donor Genetic testing
People are unique and differ from each other. This is not only due to different lifestyle and upbringing conditions, but also connected with different genotypes, since genotypes hold different forms of genes. This is the reason we pay a lot of attention to genetic tests. Please rest assured all sperm donor candidates are examined for the karyotype and carriage of Cystic fibrosis mutations.
In our sperm donation program, we choose men with total motility (a+b) over 40%. The determining factor is as well the sperm cells ability to survive after freezing-thawing process. That is why we obligatory perform this test with all our donors.
