How It Works

Andrology services are performed for local clients on site at our Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY laboratories. All services require a signed order for specific testing from your physician. Appointments are required.

Our specially designed deposit rooms provide complete privacy and include DVDs and magazines. A spouse or significant other is allowed in the room with the client.

At home collections are also possible if specimen is brought in within one to two hours of collection time.  Appointments are required for home collections.  Please contact California Cryobank to arrange for a specimen drop off time and to receive the paperwork you will need to complete prior to the drop off. 

To protect the intended recipient and to comply with state law, California Cryobank requires screening for all male clients prior to sperm wash preparations. The law allows no exceptions for husbands or sexual partners of the recipient. For all infectious disease screening performed at a California Cryobank office, it will take approximately 7-10 days for the results.
