Embryo Storage at Cryogenic Laboratories, Inc.
Cryogenic Laboratories, Inc. (CLI) has remained the leader in the industry by maintaining our unwavering commitment to a higher standard of cryobanking. We are more than a sperm bank-we are a medically oriented laboratory and cryobank, dedicated to preserving the hopes of men and women.

Although we've helped make the use of frozen sperm for assisted reproductive procedures commonplace, we are now working with our sister company and offering long-term embryo and oocyte storage. Our goal, as the leader in the field of cryopreservation, is to use the expertise and knowledge we have gained to give life to others.
