How to Select the Safest Shipping Service for Your IVF Sperm, Eggs, and Embryos

As the need for safe global transport of embryos, oocytes and sperm continues to increase every year, defining “safe transport” becomes an important consideration. 

CryoStork® continues to set these important safety standards. During our time at ASRM, the annual American Society of Reproductive Medicine Conference, we met with representatives from top fertility clinics in the U.S. and over 35 countries. The experts agree that safe transport should include vital information that provides peace of mind throughout the journey for clinics and patients: 

  • Active 24/7/365 monitoring of cryogenic temperature while in transit is a must. And, this should be done by a dedicated team of logistics experts on both cryogenic shipping and with a deep understanding of the precious nature of what is being transported.     
  • The logistics process, including near real-time tracking using GPS of shipments using cellular and Wi-Fi triangulation, also needs to be in place to ensure shipment delivery times and safety during transit. Often procedures are scheduled based on the arrival of embryos, oocytes, and sperm.    

In order to offer the most advanced approach to safe transport, CryoStork® has been the trusted leader in developing a comprehensive logistics platform to mitigate risk and ensure the quality of reproductive materials.  

In past ten years we’ve used our experience and expertise to ship over 260,000 shipments around the world. We also offer exclusive insurance options for the safe transportation of precious materials.
