Over and Above our Partners' Expectations
Published on April 18, 2011 by XCI

As a clinical embryologist I am constantly in awe of families that use third party assisted reproduction. Infertility treatment can be a daunting, stressful journey for all of us that have followed this path to parenthood. But for families that can not conceive without the help of an egg or sperm donor, the journey is that much more fraught with obstacles. Before they can even embark on their journey, they must first find their donor, and before they can do that, they must choose a bank to work with.

When You Store Your Baby’s Cord Blood with Xytex Cord Blood Bank You are Banking Life
Published on March 1, 2011 by XCI

Umbilical Cord Blood is the blood that is present in the placenta and umbilical cord when your physician delivers your baby.

Donors Make the Grade
Published on November 5, 2010 by XCI

Working as a medical laboratory tech in a hospital, I have performed tests and procedures that can affect a patient's life immediately, such as: a type and screen for a blood transfusion, a glucose test to determine if one is diabetic, a CBC that can indicate an infection, etc. However, until I started working at Xytex, never have I had the potential to affect someone's life indefinitely and so immensely.

Donors Make it Work
Published on November 5, 2010 by XCI

I have always found my job very rewarding. I enjoy conversing with the donors on a daily basis. Most donors don't realize that when I am having a bad day they can always bring a smile to my face and I hope that I do the same for them. I don't look at the donors as just a number or a way to make money for Xytex because they are much more than that; the donors are very well rounded, funny and intelligent individuals sincerely here to make a difference in someone's life.
