Due to increasing costs, we are having to increase our vial fees to $1250 per vial effective 11/1/2022. We appreciate your understanding.

We will be closed October 10th, 2022 in observance of Indigenous People's Day. Thank you!

Please be advised, masks are required when visiting our facility. Thank you!

Transfer Storage

A Transfer Account is for people who have sperm samples that were originally collected, processed, and stored at another bank, and would like those samples to now be stored at TSBC. You can arrange to transfer these samples to TSBC for short-term or long-term storage.

To establish a Transfer Account with TSBC you will need to:

Please note that TSBC will not accept transferred samples until we receive written documentation that all screening requirements have been fulfilled.

  • Before transferring program or directed donor sperm samples from another sperm bank, we need documentation that the donor completed all the screening detailed in our Requirements for Transfer to TSBC. This form must be completed and signed by a medical professional from the original or sending sperm bank.
  • If the provider of the sperm samples is storing for their spouse or sexually intimate partner, we need documentation that the provider has been tested and found negative/non-reactive for the following sexually transmitted diseases: HIV-1, HIV-2, HIV-O Hepatitis B surface antigen, Hepatitis B core antibody, Hepatitis C antibody, HTLV-1 & 2, and Syphilis. We would also like results for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia.This testing must have been performed no more than thirty (30) days prior to the initiation of sperm storage or anytime after the samples were provided, but before the samples are transferred to TSBC.
  • If the provider of the sperm samples is storing for a designated recipient who is not their spouse or sexually intimate partner, we need documentation that the provider completed all the screening detailed in our Requirements for Transfer to TSBC. This form must be completed and signed by a medical professional from the original sperm bank.
