Improve your chances of a healthy baby

We're all carriers of genetic disease. Our genes contain errors - or mutations, so even if we're not sick ourselves, these mutations can cause serious disease in our children. This is why we recommend you do a GeneXmatch.

GeneXmatch screens your genes and offers an added sense of security that your future child will be healthy.

Yes, most of our staff can work from home while providing the relevant service to our customers. Our staff is asked to stay home, if they or someone close to them display symptoms of COVID-19 or if they have visited high-risk areas. We also ask donors a range of screening questions to minimise the risk of them having been infected. Other precautionary measures include frequent wiping of surfaces and posters with clear instructions on the front door of all our locations.

At this point, there is no evidence that supports that coronavirus infection spreads via sperm or that a COVID-19 infection in a pregnant woman increases the risk for miscarriages or fetal malformations. The sperm that is donated after the coronavirus outbreak will be frozen and quarantined and released in accordance with the guidelines from the Health Authorities.

To date, there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccination affects donor sperm quality. Likewise, there are no reports of sperm from COVID-19 vaccinated donors having unexpected harmful effects on recipients of donor sperm. We follow the recommendations from national as well as European health authorities and act accordingly. In addition, vaccinated donors need to comply with the same COVID-19 screening requirements as non-vaccinated donors.
