European Sperm Bank is a privately owned Danish company established in 2004. We prioritise high-quality sperm, industry-leading donor testing, and dedicated advice above all. We do this to ensure you the best possible experience when making perhaps the most important choice of your life.
Thinking of the future is natural for us and we do everything in our power to give the children we help put into the world the best possible start in life. All donors are approved by our Medical Director, who is a clinical genetic specialist, and we are one of the only sperm banks that offer genetic matching with potential donors to help you make the right choice.
At European Sperm Bank, we focus on having a team-spirited attitude in order to get things done for you in the best way - and when necessary, you can count on us to go the extra mile. We are familiar with, and make a point of adhering to, the guidelines outlined by the EU, WHO, and several Danish and other local authorities.
We provide the highest-quality sperm for your chosen fertility treatment at a competitive price. In addition, we also offer:
Free access to our full donor profiles
A wide selection of open and non-contact donors
Free photo matching, where we match your requirements to our photos of the donors as adults
Genetic testing in the form of GeneXmatch, which reduces the risk of hereditary diseases
The option to choose an exclusive sperm donor if you want your child to be the only, or one of the only, children of your chosen donor
Purchase and storage of straws in the sperm bank for up to 10 years
75% refund of the total value, provided that the straws have not left the sperm bank
Thorough consultation and service throughout the process, right up to the birth of your child
Genetic testing for donor children to match their genetic origins with the donor to assure them of their genetic origins
Nothing but the best
In order to ensure the best chance of pregnancy, we sell nothing but the best for your selected treatment type. Our sperm donors undergo an extensive screening process that establishes sperm quality and overall health. Our screening process also eliminates candidates with selected hereditary diseases.
At European Sperm Bank, we think it's important to provide qualified consultation throughout the process. Our employees have vast experience providing consultations for women and couples as they go through fertility treatment and we know just how important it is to have someone who understands and provides extensive guidance.
As our client, the process will be simple and straightforward, right from the moment you order and receive the sperm to the birth of your first child and any subsequent siblings.
There's no room for error when it comes to packaging and shipping donor sperm.
At European Sperm Bank, we keep an eye or two on every step of the process. Prior to being shipped in the safest way possible, we make sure to carefully prepare your order for transit. Regardless of destination, you can count on us to keep your order safe.
All units of donor sperm are frozen into straws in a container for transport. This container is kept cool using liquid nitrogen and is known as a 'dry shipper'. The advantage of liquid nitrogen over dry ice is that the former can maintain its temperature for weeks.
Tell us when you're pregnant
We love receiving the good news over email or the phone - and we are more than partial to receiving photos. We would love to hear from you once your child is born. The good news will, of course, be celebrated with a small gift from the sperm bank.
Throughout the years, European Sperm Bank has helped bring more than 30,000 children into the world. Our extensive screening programme improves the probability of conceiving a healthy child.
Of course, the genes of the woman also play an important part. Most women are not subject to a genetic test prior to impregnation and it is therefore possible for genetic illnesses to stem from the mother. Even if you are fit as a fiddle, you could be a carrier for illnesses that only manifest in e.g. male children.
If you wish to minimise the risk of disease-causing combinations in the genes from you and your donor, European Sperm Bank offers GeneXmatch. As part of this genetic test, we take an in-depth look at your genes and match them to the genes of your selected donors. The test includes more than 390 recessive genes. In addition, we test for 12 gender-specific diseases, including Fragile X syndrome.
The risk of a donor child developing a serious illness is lower than the average risk for all children. This is the direct result of our tough screening requirements, as part of which we reject all men who do not live up to our requirements or are detected as carriers.
If your child is diagnosed with a serious illness or you suspect that something is wrong, it is vital that you inform us or your chosen fertility clinic. This will help us ensure that other children do not develop the same illness. In such cases, we carry out an in-depth evaluation in cooperation with the Danish Patient Safety Authority.
