How can I find CMV negative sperm donors?

1 min. readlast update: 02.01.2024

Here at Fairfax Cryobank, we screen all sperm donors for CMV antibodies every three months. If the donor tests positive for antibodies, we conduct further testing to determine if the results represent a recent or older infection. If a recent infection cannot be ruled out, all semen vials are discarded. How to find CMV Negative Donors at Fairfax Cryobank: If you test CMV-negative, selecting CMV-negative sperm donors can reduce the risk of a congenital CMV infection.

  • Do a Donor Search
  • In the Advanced Search section, locate CMV
  • Select the box next to Negative
