WHAT WE SCREEN FOR

It is important that all sperm donors are healthy and have a high sperm count. Therefore, we perform a semen analysis and screen all sperm donor candidates carefully before they can become a donor – and for as long as they donate. This is a part of the application process, which you can learn more about right here.

Our sperm donor test and application process for candidates is comprised of interviews, screening of blood and urine, medical examinations and comprehensive genetic tests. We follow EU guidelines on screening sperm donor candidates.

We test blood and urine for the following:

  • Blood type (Rh- and ABO systems)
  • HIV I/II
  • HTLV I / II
  • Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
  • Hepatitis B Core Antibody
  • Syphilis
  • CMV IgG / IgM
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Thalassemia
  • Sickle Cell Disease
  • Cystic Fibrosis (CF)
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)
  • Hereditary deafness (GJB2)

You are always welcome to email or call us if you have any questions.
