Required Blood Tests

Strong Fertility Center requires all client depositors to be tested for the following sexually transmitted diseases:

  • HIV-1 and HIV-2
  • HTLV-1
  • Hepatitis B surface antigen
  • Hepatitis B core antibody
  • Hepatitis CCMV (Ig G and Ig M)

The purpose of this requirement is to protect any eventual recipient from acquiring a communicable disease from the use of the frozen semen samples. Your referring physician can order these tests (and have a copy of the results sent to Strong Fertility Center). If you have had any of these tests performed within six months of your sperm banking, you may forward a copy of the results to us for our records. Due to New York State Department of Health regulations, failure to have these tests performed may prevent your usage of the samples.

Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions:

Phone: (585) 487-3378

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
