Ordering donor sperm
If you are going to use donor sperm for treatment, the sperm should be ordered from one of the certified sperm banks, and the donor sperm should be transferred to us. We can store the frozen sperm samples in liquid nitrogen until they are used for treatment.
You can find the desired information about the donors on the sperm bank’s websites.
In Denmark, there are three major sperm banks:
Skejby Cryobank. We have a collaboration agreement with Danish Skejby Cryobank, which, like Trianglen, is part of Virtus Health. This means that you get free delivery and save our handling fee when you order sperm from Skejby CryoBank. Here you choose a sperm donor yourself, and you order sperm straw yourself.
European Sperm Bank. We collaborate with European Sperm Bank so you can access their donor register without having to pay. Use the following link to access the page: http://clinics.europeanspermbank.com/trianglen
We have a cooperation agreement with European Sperm Bank, which allows you a 50% discount on your shipments to us when you choose to have sperm sent to us at Trianglen.
All sperm straws from European Sperm Bank are MOT20 or better and thus meet Trianglen’s recommendations for quality. You can find more information about ordering donor sperm here.
Cryos. We have a cooperation agreement with Cryos that gives you a 10% discount and the opportunity to save money on shipping to our clinic. Use the code: TRIANG10 when you order sperm straws from Cryos and choose ‘Recommended shipment’ if it suits with your treatment. Read more about ordering from Cryos and about the cooperation under “Patient Information” and on their website: Trianglen Fertility Clinic - Discount on donor sperm from Cryos.
Sperm straws can be shipped from Cryos Monday - Friday. Cryos has a preferred shipping day of Wednesday. If it suits your treatment, you can advantageously have your order sent on Wednesday and obtain a reduced price for shipping.
Please note that The Danish Health and Medicines Authority and the sperm banks use different definitions of ’anonymous’.
Selection of donor sperm
As described, there is a choice of several different types of sperm donor ("Anonymous", "Extended Profile", "Open" and "Private"). Depending on the type of donor, you can choose basic information such as eye color, hair color, height, weight or more comprehensive information, for example, children photos, voice sample, etc.
Sperm banks offer a choice of different donor types and associated options for the donor. We recommend that you use sperm banks to find a donor who matches your wishes. When you have found a suitable donor, you get semen straws transferred to us. We can then keep the straw at minus 196 ° C until they are used in your treatment.
