At Xytex, sperm quality is our top priority. We are committed to providing you with donor sperm that is the industry’s most selective, most tested and most successful.

SELECTIVE

Our donors are chosen with you and your future family in mind. All donors must pass a rigorous screening and testing process. They are evaluated for medical, personality, and behavioral characteristics.

TESTED

Xytex evaluates donors for hereditary conditions through an extensive medical and family history questionnaire and genetic testing for the most common inherited genetic conditions as recommended by leading medical organizations. Our donors are continually tested while in the program through physical exams, urinalysis and bloodwork, ensuring you receive the healthiest sperm.

SUCCESSFUL

To prove our commitment to providing you with the highest quality sperm, we adhere to the following industry-leading standards for each of our units:

Procedure TypeVial TypeQuality Commitment
Intracervical Insemination
ICI ready (Unwashed)12.5 million motile sperm per thawed 0.5 milliliter unwashed vial (25 MOT)
Intrauterine InseminationIUI ready (Washed)10.0 million motile sperm per thawed 0.5 milliliter washed vial (20 MOT)
In-vitro FertilizationIVF (ART)5 million motile sperm per thawed 0.5 milliliter vial (10 MOT)
Introcytoplasmic Sperm InjectionICSI1 million motile sperm per thawed 0.5 milliliter vial (2 MOT)

*An unwashed unit is frozen in its most natural state, allowing sperm to remain in its natural seminal fluid.

**A washed unit separates the sperm from its natural seminal fluid and is frozen in a preserving fluid. Removing seminal fluid helps minimize cramping that can result from prostaglandins, hormones that cause the uterus to contract.

We allow for up to a 25% variance from the total motile sperm cells listed on the packing slip. For example: our guarantee for IUI ready (washed) units is 10 million motile per 0.5 milliliter vial (washed unit). With a 25% variance, 7.5 million motile per vial is acceptable.

It is the responsibility of the inseminating healthcare provider to maintain accurate records, should there be a quality concern, or subsequent infectious or genetic problems occur following the use of our specimen. Should there be a concern, a Quality Report will need to be submitted within 45 days of the thaw and applies to units used within 90 days of receipt.

Quality reports associated with treatment that results in a successful pregnancy, or successful fertilization in IVF cycles without a transfer, will not be considered, regardless of the total motile count of the specimen.

Quality guarantee is void if ownership is transferred prior to use.

Xytex’s liability for any specimen that does not meet the above guarantee shall be limited to the following, at Xytex’s discretion:

  • Supplying specimen replacement
  • Full or partial refund for the cost of the specimen
  • Shipping costs will not be considered unless the specimen arrives already thawed
  • Xytex shall not be held liable for any consequential of incidental damages, including but not limited to any additional or associated expenses incurred during treatment
