There are numerous good reasons to store sperm for possible future use, and more and more choose to do so. At SellmerDiers, we provide optimal and secure facilities for both short-term and long-term sperm storage.

SellmerDiers provides optimal and secure testing and storage options and facilities for those of our clients that have decided to grow a family with a Known Donor.
To ensure the safety of the recipient and the offspring in the best possible way, Danish law requires extensive screening and testing of Known Donors that are similar to the screening of the donors in our donor catalogue. You can learn more about this procedure under Screening. However, a known donor’s sperm quality, regarding e.g. sperm count and thaw ability, can be somewhat lower than that tolerated for the donors in our donor catalogue where the sperm selection criteria are extremely high. This may result in lower pregnancy rates compared to the donors in our donor catalogue.
It is our experience that the use of a known donor requires clarification of more medical, legal, social and familial issues and dilemmas than using a donor from our donor catalogue. Therefore, we highly recommend that both the known donor and the recipient obtain appropriate legal, medical and psychological assistance prior to implementation of the known donor procedures.
Before we begin the known donor sperm collection and storage process please contact us for further information, and we will send you the required paperwork by e-mail. Once all the required paperwork has been filled out by both the recipient and the known donor and returned to SellmerDiers, please make an appointment for screening/testing and setting up the account.
