Vial Exchange Program

It's OK to change your mind

Whatever the reason, to make sure you are 100% confident in your donor selection, California Cryobank offers our Vial Exchange Program. Occasionally a client will opt to change to a new donor while still having vials of an original donor remaining in storage. This is usually due to preference (a new donor appears on the catalogue) or availability (their first donor has been retired and/or is in limited supply).

Participation Requirements:

  • Clients must exchange vials within 0-36 months of original purchase date
  • Vials must be purchased and stored at California Cryobank (never leaving the premises)
  • Vials must meet California Cryobank's current testing standards
  • Client account must be in good standing (no outstanding balance due)
  • Offer is not available for Donor Reserve Program

An administrative fee of $150 will apply per request. Clients must pay the fee difference if the replacement vials are more expensive than the original stored vials. Vial Exchanges may take up to four weeks for completion. Vial eligibility is subject to California Cryobank approval. Storage fees will not be refunded or pro-rated for clients participating in the Vial Exchange.  Program terms are subject to change.

National averages range from 3-4 insemination cycles per successful pregnancy. We recommend purchasing at least 5 vials per child to guarantee your donor remains available until reaching your personal family goals.

Our donors sell out and retire quickly! We have thousands of clients forced to choose between a new donor or not having a second child because they chose not to store vials for future use while they were available. To help you plan for your future, we offer 3 Years FREE storage if you purchase 3 Years+ vials ($1,050 value) - as well as the ability to sell back any unused vials that have not left our control.
