The cryogenic laboratory is an integral part of KRIOBANK’s Infertility Treatment Centre, dedicated to the cryopreservation of biological materials. From the point of view of patients being treated for infertility, the most important cryogenic applications are cryopreservation of sperm and isolated reproductive cells (Sperm Bank), and embryos (Embryo Bank). The ability to use donor semen, depositing your own semen for later use, and freezing and storing embryos are the most common services we provide during infertility treatment.
Often our patients are men who, after several semen analyses and testicular biopsy are diagnosed with azoospermia. This situation completely excludes the possibility of pregnancy. Azoospermia, except for cases caused by obstruction of the seminal tract (obstructive azoospermia) or hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, is usually irreversible, and conservative treatment has no positive effect. In this situation it is possible to use anonymous donor banks. KRIOBANK, as the first and currently one of few institutions in Poland, offers help to couples in whom the man does not produce sperm. Donor sperm may be used for insemination or IVF treatment.
