Get to Know Our Donor Screen Process

We know that you are serious about your family plans. You may be exploring the option of finding a sperm donor as part of them. Well, it stands to reason that you want to find the best, highest quality sperm donors possible.

We are always looking for sperm donors, but we only work with a small percentage of our overall applicants. The process begins with the application and ends with the donor submitting vials for us to provide with our customers. Before we can sell the samples, we need to make sure that they meet our standards.

At Cascade Cryobank, we understand the importance of the health and wellbeing of the donors. That is why we have an extensive donor screening process that holds to the highest quality standards. Here’s a look at what our screening process looks like:

Reviewing Submitted Applications

Our process begins when a potential donor submits the application. We have designed our application to help prescreen potential donors and each is carefully evaluated by our experienced team. We ask for information such as age, medical history, and lifestyle factors. We review the answers to assess their eligibility because we want donors who are in good health and have healthy lifestyles.

Medical and Genetic Testing

The application process is just the beginning. After the potential donor makes it through the application process, we ask them to submit some samples for testing and to undergo some medical evaluations. We want to identify any underlying health conditions or genetic issues that could affect any future offspring. We test for infectious diseases, genetic disorders, chromosomal abnormalities, and more. We are rigorous in our testing process, and we adhere to industry standards.

Psychological Evaluation

Once a potential donor passes through the application process and then the medical evaluations, we have them speak to our counselor for a psychological evaluation and counseling. There are psychological implications that a donor might not realize the implications of becoming a sperm donor. We need to get a feel for their general emotional health, as well as assess if they are psychologically prepared for the process. When speaking with the counselor, the donor has a chance to discuss their motivations for becoming one and go over any concerns he may have.

At Cascade Cryobank, our goal is to help our clients grow their families. To do that, we work with the best sperm donors we can find. This gives our clients peace of mind that they have made a great choice for their families.
