DONOR EMBRYOS ARE THE RESULT OF COMBINING DONOR EGGS WITH DONOR SPERM.
WHEN SELECTING THE DONORS, WE DO OUR BEST TO MATCH BOTHPROSPECTIVE PARENTS’ PHYSICAL FEATURES (HEIGHT, EYE, AND HAIR COLOUR)
With our state-of-the-art donor database, we are immediately able to locate a near-perfect match.
Our egg donors are all women 18-35 years of age and our sperm donors are men 18-35 years of age.
All our donors are tested for, genetic and hormonal disorders and infectious diseases including HIV.
WOMEN AND MEN IN THE DONOR PROGRAM HAVE UNDERGONE RIGOROUS TESTS AND EXAMINATIONS: COMPLETE GYNECOLOGICAL EXAMINATION, TESTS FOR SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES (HIV, HBsAg, HCV, SYPHILIS, CHLAMYDIA), HORMONE PROFILE, BLOOD GROUP AND RH FACTOR, GENETIC EXAMINATION (KARYOTYPE, PRESENCE OF CYSTIC FIBROSIS GENE MUTATIONS, SPINAL MUSCULAR ATROPHY).
