Accreditations and Licenses

When choosing a semen bank, California Cryobank suggests selecting a semen bank that has been inspected and is currently accredited by the following institutions.

American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB)

Founded in 1976, The American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) is a professional, non-profit, scientific, and educational organization dedicated to maintaining high standards of excellence in the tissue banking industry. To be accredited by the AATB, the tissue bank must submit to comprehensive on-site inspections. These inspections are designed to assure that the bank is professionally managed, appropriately staffed, and maintains policies and procedures to provide consistent quality. Only a few gamete banks in the world have been accredited by AATB.

FDA Compliance

As of May 25, 2005, establishments engaged in the recovery, screening, testing, packaging, processing, storage, labeling and distribution of human gametes or embryos are required to comply with FDA regulations specified in 21 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) Part 1271.

California Cryobank uses reference laboratories to perform donor testing, which are registered with the FDA, and other applicable state regulatory agencies, and have a current Certificate of Compliance of Accreditation for CLIA requirements.

As required by 21 CFR 1271.55 (a)(3) of the regulations, California Cryobank includes a Summary of Records that documents the tests performed on the donor and an interpretation of the results with each shipment of donor semen.

State Departments of Health

Most states do not regulate semen banks, but New York and California are among the states that do regulate tissue banks. In fact, New York's standards are the most stringent in the industry.

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. Additionally, you get 1 Year FREE storage if you purchase 4 or more vials ($475 value).


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.
