Sperm Bank Comparison

Compare Sperm Banks and Learn What Sets Fairfax Cryobank Apart

Family matters most – that’s something we can all agree on.

Seeking out the best sperm donor banks is critical. After all, the stakes could not be higher. That’s why the team at Fairfax Cryobank has gone above and beyond to bring thousands of families across the US the latest in industry innovation – all delivered with a sensitive human touch.

When you start to compare sperm banks, you might find that some lack the scientific expertise, others the dedication to customer care, comfort, and satisfaction.

For the past three decades, we have provided cutting-edge technology to give our valued customer peace of mind. We have developed the most rigorous screening process of any of the country’s best donor banks. We have created fun, interactive methods of uncovering a donor that ticks all the boxes – health-wise, personality-wise, and even appearance-wise.

But most importantly, we have made family possible.

We hope you use the below chart to compare sperm banks and gain a better understanding of what truly sets us apart.
