Also, the success of curing men of reproductive age with testicular and other cancers is improving rapidly. Most men with cancer can now look forward to family and fatherhood. The rapid advancements of assisted reproductive technologies have greatly enhanced the chances for men having undergone cancer treatments to now father their own biological children. Cryopreserved sperm specimens, when properly stored, will remain viable for an indefinite period of time. Pregnancies have been reported from the use of thawed semen that had been frozen and stored for 20 years prior to use. This is fertility insurance and it can be accomplished by using the Biotranz semen shipper and our state of the art cryopreservation facilities at the Andrology Institute of America.
How does it work?
Once you place your order, we will ship the special BioTranz Semen Shipper to you. You do not necessarily have to use the bioTranz immediately. You may store the buffer and the ice pack that comes with the BioTranz in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator, until you are ready to collect the specimen. Before you collect the specimen, be sure to thaw the buffer prior to use. Collect the semen during intercourse using the specially designed non-spermicidal condom.
Once the sample is collected, follow the instructions to place the semen in the test tube. Add an equal volume of the thawed buffer (freezing medium) to the semen sample and mix gently. Place the test tube back in the BioTranz, and have the container overnight shipped back to our offices.
After our experts receive the BioTranz, the specimen will be frozen utilizing the best semen cryopreservation technologies available in the market today. You will be sent a confirmation with a Cryopreservation Tracking Number for future reference.

The Home Cryopreservation Kit (The BioTranz™) is a unique service which allows you to have your semen shipped overnight, and cryopreserved at the Andrology Institute of America. The survival of sperm after thawing is dependant on the inital quality of the sperm sample prior to cryopreservation. It is highly recommended that the sample be evaluated prior to the procedure using the Mock Cryopreservation Kit in order to identify any possible deficiencies that you may have in your semen. We do check for a variety of semen parameters that are established by the WHO as predictive of one's ability to fertilize and achieve a pregnancy. If the sample is deemed not suitable for Cryopreservation as evidenced by the Mock Cryopreservation Kit, then we would not recommend this procedure for you.
This kit does not inlcude cryostorage charges, nor the processing, shipping and handling, if we were to ship the cryopreserved specimen to another location. We cannot guarantee the outcome of the Home Cryopreservation procedure. It is important to realize that semen parameters could vary from sample to sample, and therefore the Mock Cryopreservation Kit may in some cases not be predictive of the actual Cryopreservation Procedure done at another time.
Also, any form of artificial insemination is a physician prescribed procedure and it should be performed by or under the guidance of a qualified physician.
Due to the time sensitive nature of materials in the Home Cryopreservation Kits (The BioTranz™), these kits cannot be returned for a refund.
