Step 1: For Cryopreservation and/or Andrology Services, you must first obtain a referral/prescription from your doctor that states which type of service is to be performed. The doctor’s referral/prescription can be faxed, emailed, or brought with you to Manhattan CryoBank on your first visit.

Step 2: After you have submitted your doctor’s referral prescription, you must contact Manhattan CryoBank to schedule your appointment. For Sperm Storage and Andrology Services, we recommend 2-5 of abstinence prior to appointments.

Sperm, Egg, and Embryo Transportation

Manhattan CryoBank can assist you with transporting your specimens to and from Manhattan CryoBank, as well as between clinics. You can find transportation prices listed on our Additional Services Fees page. 

You may ship specimens that you have in storage at Manhattan CryoBank through our Order Additional Services page.

If you will be transporting specimens from another facility to be stored at Manhattan CryoBank, you will need to follow the steps below:

Step 1: Please contact Manhattan CryoBank for a quote and to discuss the transport. During this discussion, we will assess if your transport will require an exemption from the NYS Dept. of Health. Given that we are located in New York State, the NYS Dept. of Health requires all specimens to be produced by a NYS licensed clinic or doctor. If your existing clinic is within New York State, we typically do not need an exemption. However, if your clinic is located outside of New York State, we will need to determine if an exemption needs to be submitted. If an exemption is needed, the cost for submission is $100.

Step 2: If you decide to go ahead with the transfer, we recommend speaking with your fertility clinic or fertility doctor’s office to make sure you have completed all of the necessary paperwork to release the specimens.

Step 3: We require that you complete the following documents for transporting specimens:

*All documents may be submitted to Manhattan CryoBank by fax or by email.

Step 4: You must pay for your transfer prior to the scheduled transfer date by contacting us at 212-396-2796.
