California Cryobank Introduces ID Disclosure Sperm Donors

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Los Angeles, CA, June 2017 - California Cryobank (Cryobank), the worldwide leader in frozen donor sperm and egg banking, recently announced the addition of ID Disclosure Donors to their donor sperm services.

Along with agreeing to an initial contact facilitated by Cryobank, ID Disclosure Donors consent to having their contact information provided to any future 18 year-old offspring.

Historically, the anonymous donor sperm industry evolved to serve hetero-couples whose main concern was finding a donor with similar physical traits to the male partner. Little if any thought went into future contact with the donor. Over the last 10-15 years, a growing focus on family building in the LGBT community, and single women embracing motherhood on their own, have introduced a new set of priorities for many intended parents utilizing donor sperm to start their families.

“We have always facilitated contact between offspring and donors, but that contact has traditionally been optional for the donors,” explains Scott Brown, Cryobank’s Director of Client Experience. “Watching our client base grow to include so many same-sex couples and single women, we felt it was important for our program to evolve to meet their specific needs. Intended parents will now be able to choose a donor knowing their child will be able to receive his contact information once they turn 18. Our goal for the ID Disclosure program is to help alleviate some of the concerns that can impact the early stages of creating a family and open up future lines of communication.”

With over 500 highly qualified donors to choose from, Cryobank provides extensive donor information to help with the selection process including Extended Donor Profiles, Childhood Photo Series, Personal Essays, and Audio Interviews.

Less than 1% of applicants qualify to become Cryobank donors. The donor screening process includes strict specimen quality standards, three generations of family medical history review, genetic screening, communicable disease testing, psychological screening, and criminal background check.
