Donor Screening

 International Donors

Information About International Donors

Sussex Sperm Bank offers a wide selection of donors from the US. These donors are offered in partnership with Seattle Sperm Bank in the US.

All international donors provided by Seattle Sperm Bank (SSB) with a collection date after 2018 are with Myriad’s Foresight Panel (175 conditions tested). Seattle Sperm Bank used Myriad’s Universal Carrier Screening (102 conditions tested) on all donors who entered our program since August 2016.

Seattle Sperm Bank continues to expand their genetic testing of donors as technology continues to advance and additional testing becomes available. As a result, not all donors have been tested for the same conditions or with the same methods.


Improved Donor Search

Use Our Better Search Tool With Options

To better serve our clients, we have created a donor search tool with filtering options, to show only donors that have been genetically tested and found to be negative for specific conditions you choose from the list.

For example, if you are a known carrier for Pendred Syndrome, you could select that condition from the list, and then select “Find Match” on the top right of the donor search tool. The resulting matches would only show donors who were tested and found to be negative for Pendred Syndrome.

We can help guide you through your options.

Please note: Even if a donor has been evaluated for carrier status, a negative result reduces, but does not eliminate, the chance of the donor being a carrier. If you are a known carrier of a genetic condition please contact us or use our Donor Search tool, and we can provide you a list of donors who have been screened for this condition and found to be negative. If you do not know your carrier status, you can easily find out by ordering a discounted saliva kit at Myriad’s website below.


Ensure Donor Compatibility With Confidence

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!
