Buying donor sperm can seem like a daunting task. There are many factors to consider when purchasing donor vials - not to mention finding your perfect donor. At Manhattan CryoBank, our goal is to make it simple to find a donor you love; and to make your purchase of donor sperm as easy as can be.
Below you’ll find a guide explaining the process of ordering donor sperm, from the selection of your perfect donor to the successful shipment of your vials.

ICI (Unwashed) Vials: ICI, which stands for intra-cervical insemination, is the placement of sperm inside the vagina, more specifically the cervix. ICI-Unwashed Vials at Manhattan CryoBank are “unwashed,” which is similar to a “raw” ejaculate made during intercourse, containing natural nutrients, proteins, sperm cells, etc. The ICI insemination may be performed in the privacy of your own home, without the assistance of a licensed medical professional.
As you narrow down your list of donors, we highly recommended that you check their inventory levels. The inventory levels include the total IUI-Ready (Washed) and ICI (Unwashed) vials available. The inventory levels are broken down into the following 3 categories.
The inventory of the sperm donors may be replenished from time to time. If you see that a donor has either Low or Medium inventory levels, you may contact us to see if any more vials for that donor will be released.

Purchasing Donor Sperm: The simplest way to purchase donor sperm is online.

Shipping Donor Sperm from Storage: If you already have donor sperm in storage at Manhattan CryoBank and would like to pay to ship your specimens, you may do so online. If you initially purchased the donor vials online, you may order shipping for your vials through your Account Page. If you did not initially purchase the donor vials online, you may order shipping as a stand-alone item from the Additional Services Page.
Purchasing Donor Sperm or Shipping Offline: If you are unable to complete your purchase of donor sperm or shipping online, you may do so by phone, fax, or email. If you are paying by any of these methods, you must submit the Authorization to Transfer Frozen Specimen Form in addition to your other necessary forms.
