Upgraded Testing Standards
In June 2008, all our NEW donors have had Spinal Muscular Atrophy testing. Those donors with the testing have it listed on their summary profiles, or you can contact Client Services for a list of tested donors.
Tests that are highlighted are those above and beyond what FDA requires. In addition, CLI utilizes NAT or DNA based technology more extensively than most other sperm banks.
ABO Rh Blood TypingInfectious Disease Testing
* FDA required testing. Please note we do more than is required.
The FDA does not require genetic disease testing.
Additional testing may be added at any time. Specific medical or genetic testing may be available on request for an additional charge. There may be donors who entered our program prior to 8/2002 still on our current list and they will be missing some of the above mentioned tests. In addition, FDA regulations went into effect in 5/2005 and samples produced prior to that date may not have all the FDA testing completed.
Donor's who do not have the screening tests listed above completed will be indicated as such on their Summary Profile or Family Medical History (if a Summary Profile is not available). If you would like to ask specific testing questions, please contact us.
