Donor Family Slots for UK Distribution
HFEA regulations require that no donor distributed in the UK can result in births for more then ten families. Because of this regulation, all providers of Sperm Units must track and ensure that a donor is not being actively used for pregnancy in excess of this limit.
In order to allow patients to reserve access to a specific Donor we require all patients to purchase a Family Slot for the Donor they wish to use for insemination. This Family Slot gives the patient the right to purchase vials from that donor and use that donor’s specimens for starting a family.
A Donor Family Slot must be purchased in order to have treatment with any of our donors. One family slot is required per donor. A Family Slot is good for 12 months and must be renewed if it is not used within the 12 month timeframe. The 12 month timeframe will be activated on the date of your purchase.
The initial 12 month Family slot must be extended should you have samples and/or embryos in storage at your clinic in order to continue having treatment. This 6 month extension period will be activated from the expiry date of the initial Family Slot.
The initial 12 month Family slot must be extended should you have samples and/or embryos in storage at your clinic in order to continue having treatment. This 12 month extension period will be activated from the expiry date of the initial Family Slot.
Donor Sperm Vials

Sussex Sperm Bank offers a great selection of vial unit types from a large selection of available donors at competitive prices.
Please contact us if you have any questions about our donors or need assistance in making a selection.
IUI or “Washed” units are usually used for an insemination directly into the uterus with the assistance of a physician or clinic. These are our standard premium vials.
IUI A.R.T. vials are “Washed” units that have fewer sperm cells per unit then our standard IUI premium vials. IVF vials contain 8-19 million sperm per ml. These vials are often used for IVF procedures.
ICI A.R.T. vials are “Washed” units that have fewer sperm cells per unit then our standard ICI premium vials.

Providing Peace of Mind
Genetic Testing Services
We have partnered with a local laboratory to offer our UK clients a custom carrier screening test to confirm their compatibility with a donor who is a known carrier of genetic condition(s).
The service, called CGT SYNC (carrier genetic testing, synchronized) includes pretest genetic counseling and custom genetic testing on you for the conditions for which your selected donor is a carrier, as well as for inherited conditions uniquely passed from the egg source/mother to the child. If your results indicate you and your selected donor are not compatible, Igenomix will run another CTG SYNC test based on a new donor, at no additional charge to you!
Simply click on “Request Information” on this link and select “CTG” as the service in the dropdown menu. A genetic counselor from Igenomix will reach out to you with additional information.
Cost: £595 for testing and £40 for sample shipping billed by Igenomix, Vitrolife Group.
