Serum Sperm Bank was established in 1991 to provide Serum IVF Clinic patients with a wide variety of top quality donor options. It is the first and largest sperm bank in Greece and it has helped thousands of couples in more than 20 countries all over the world to fulfill their dream of creating a family.
Our core principle is that “High quality sperm gives a high chance of a successful healthy pregnancy”.
Serum Sperm Bank is the only one that provides exclusively top quality sperm in contrast with others sperm banks that offer different qualities at different prices.
Serum Sperm Bank follows a very strict donor screening process using state-of-the-art technological equipment. Donor screening consists of tests on all sexually transmitted diseases, genetic analysis, karyotyping and cystic fibrosis testing. We take pride in the fact that we are the only sperm bank that includes a DNA fragmentation test on all specimens before and after cryopreservation so we can detect any possible alteration on the DNA in order to ensure the highest pregnancy rate possible to all our patients. Furthermore, thanks to our excellent and pioneering cryo-preservation system we have managed to significantly increase the post-thawing specimen vitality levels.
Serum Sperm Bank offers another pioneering service to the future parents, by collecting and preserving donors’ DNA samples so if need be, you can have access to and request any necessary DNA tests without the donor’s physical presence being a prerequisite.
All our donors are carefully selected. Apart from the necessary medical screening we ensure that all our specimens come from young donors (most of them in their early 20s), from all races and with a rich variety of physical features. Additionally, the majority of our donors have a high educational background. In Serum Sperm Bank we further guarantee the high quality of our specimens by keeping extremely analytical records of our donors’ family medical history as well as extensive reviews of our donors’ psychological profiles.
Our staff consists of highly qualified and specialized scientists, who offer a comprehensive consultation at all stages of the procedure to couples and single women. Under our guidance, future parents choose the specimen that best matches their preferences. We guarantee absolute discretion and confidentiality throughout the whole selection process.
Serum Sperm Bank abides by the national and EU legislation on sperm banks and ensures the application of WHO standards on sperm donation. Sperm donation is anonymous by law in Greece. The protection of the donor’s and the recipient’s identity is absolute, however, we are entitled to disclose non-identifiable information necessary for the final selection of the donor, regarding characteristics such as skin, eye and hair colour, education, height, weight, hobbies and any other features that may be important for the patient.
