Fairfax Cryobank Continues to be the Trusted Source for Donor Sperm
For those in need of donor sperm, the first step in your family-building journey will be selecting a sperm bank you can trust, one that has thorough screening, extensive and diverse donor selection, and a helpful Client Services team. Since 1986, Fairfax Cryobank has been the trusted source for donor sperm, providing the highest-quality sperm to help grow healthy families around the globe.
The next step of choosing a sperm donor is one of the most important decisions a person can make on their journey to parenthood. It takes three things to create a child: an egg, sperm, and a uterus. Many families are created using donor egg, donor sperm, or a gestational carrier to provide the uterus.
Fairfax Cryobank Evolved to Meet Changing Pandemic Needs
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to alter and affect our lives, adding to a tough year, Fairfax Cryobank has seen prospective parents growing their families as moments of joy. Despite the hardships happening around the world, people are still looking to grow their families. Those privileged to have flexible work from home careers may find this is an optimal time to go through fertility treatments and care for a newborn.
Fairfax Cryobank and the fertility industry have been incredibly busy as we have seen an increase in client engagement and donor sperm orders.
As with so many other workplaces, at the start of the pandemic in March 2020, we paused operations to assess the safety and to put measures in place to ensure that our staff, clients, and donors were not at risk. We adapted and implemented measures to decrease the risk of COVID-19 spread. We are screening and testing our donors, have contactless interactions with all persons who enter our facilities, are following all recommendations from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), and are confident that we are providing the highest quality, best-tested donor sperm to our clients, as we have done for over 35 years. Because of these measures, Fairfax Cryobank is not experiencing a shortage of donors or available donor sperm; that said we are always working to increase our pool of sperm donors to meet the needs of our diverse client population.
Benefits of Working with Fairfax Cryobank, the Trusted Source for Donor Sperm
When you work with Fairfax Cryobank, you have the choice of over 450 quality sperm donors. Growing your family with Fairfax Cryobank, the trusted source for donor sperm since 1986, means you know you are choosing a sperm donor who has been thoroughly vetted through a background check, psychological evaluation, had their educational transcript and/or diploma verified, completed multiple rounds of infectious disease testing and genetic disease screening. You also have the assurance that the sample you are receiving has been through multiple checks for quality. In addition, you also ensure the clear legal parentage of your child as each donor signs an agreement with Fairfax Cryobank to relinquish all parental rights.
When you work with someone outside of the controlled and regulated process of a sperm bank, there is a greater risk of inaccurate information being shared, risk of infectious disease, and lack of legal protections, state legislation varies regarding establishing parentage. Working with a trusted, proven, and FDA certified sperm bank takes the worry out of your journey.
Use Fairfax Cryobank to Screen Your Known Sperm Donor
If you would like to work with a Known or Directed Donor, such as a friend or relative of the non-egg provider in a couple, Fairfax Cryobank can guide you through this process. We can provide the same top-notch sample evaluation, processing, and freezing, along with the infectious disease testing and documentation required by the FDA for your medical professional that is completed for our standard new sperm donor screening. Our team can also facilitate genetic screening. In addition to the services provided by Fairfax Cryobank, we strongly recommend that you work with a lawyer to complete an agreement with the donor that outlines parental rights, relationship expectations, etc.
