June 20, 2013  Fairfax Cryobank's Successful Policy on Donor Sperm Pregnancy Limits

Fairfax Cryobank, one of the world’s largest sperm banks, has been successfully implementing a strict policy on limiting the births from the use of donor sperm. Since 2008, Fairfax Cryobank has been carefully monitoring reported pregnancies and removing donors right away from their list of available donors once the limit has been reached.


July 19, 2011  Fairfax Cryobank Exceeds 10,000 Photo Uploads With Popular Fairfax FaceMatch™: Fairfax Cryobank launched Fairfax FaceMatch™ in February 2011. Fairfax FaceMatch™ is a free high-tech tool that helps patients find their ideal sperm donor.  In less than six months, Fairfax FaceMatch™ has experienced over 10,000 photo uploads by patients searching for a donor who resembles their partner, a family member, or even a celebrity.

March 2, 2010 Addressing Donor Identity and Medical History Issues- Our Response

Recent press stories address a family's concern with their donor conceived child's medical condition. Fairfax Cryobank is not the sperm bank mentioned in these stories.

As a sperm bank that wants to act responsibly on behalf of families and sperm donors, Fairfax Cryobank will go out of our way to contact donors and get follow-up information to help families who want medical concerns addressed and provide genetic counselling. We have our Check Donor Medical Status program online accessible24/7 should families have concerns. Furthermore, we are committed to protecting the identity of donors we have contracted with under the condition they remain anonymous. We do not provide birth dates as part of our donor information. Clients sign an agreement that they will respect donor anonymity if they choose to use one of our anonymous donors. To address these specific concerns, we made ID Options donors available starting back in 2005. Every month we are adding new donors in this category. Clients who want the option to know donor identity can choose these donors who have clearly stated they are accepting of the possibility of contact.
