July 2, 2014 - At home semen collection kits discounted through LIVESTRONG greatly extend access to Fertility Preservation services
ReproTech, Ltd., the leading cryobank specializing in long-term storage of human reproductive tissue (sperm, eggs, embryos and ovarian and testicular tissue), has partnered with LIVESTRONG to offer its "sperm banking from home" kits through the LIVESTRONG Fertility Discount Program. ReproTech’s OverNite Male™ Kits are now available at a discounted rate through the program.
"ReproTech is proud that its OverNite Male TM Kit is now included in the LIVESTRONG Fertility Discount program, in addition to our other long term storage services. This partnership will help us to further support those males affected by cancer who are unable to travel to a local sperm banking clinic, or who are too ill to leave the hospital." says Brent Hazelrigg, President and CEO of ReproTech. "We share the Foundation’s enthusiasm and commitment to helping those diagnosed with cancer to have a family, regardless of financial means. Together, we hope to make a profound difference in the lives of survivors and their families all across the U.S."
The OverNite Male™ Kit is the original over night sperm collection kit and still the gold standard. Developed by Gail S. Prins, Ph.D. and her team at the University of Illinois at Chicago Andrology Lab in 1994, the Kit is the simplest to use and most secure. Due to the unique partnership of the UIC Andrology Lab and ReproTech, Ltd., and their commitment and experience in fertility preservation, the OverNite Male™ Kit is by far the most cost effective and convenient kit available.
