Safe Storage Facilities

At ReproTech, we take pride in providing our clients with the safest reproductive specimen storage options available. We have four strategically placed cryostorage centers across the country to offer convenient and efficient long-term storage to IVF centers and their clients throughout the United States.

To ensure the safety of patient specimens, our locations are intentionally placed out of the path of Mother Nature’s fury. Even still, mother nature can be unpredictable. Nobody can be sure of what nature will throw their way. That’s why we build our storage sites to withstand the worst weather in the nation: hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires. ReproTech is the only organization that offers this high level of security for clients looking to store their reproductive specimens for the long term.

In addition to solid protection from the elements, all of our facilities utilize monitoring systems that are capable of detecting a change in cryostorage tank temperature as slight as .01 degrees Celsius and are under 24/7 surveillance and data recording. All monitoring and data collection systems are maintained by ReproTech’s Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) to ensure there’s not even a milisecond’s lapse in power to our critical systems.

On top of the automated monitoring, all tanks are also manually filled and monitored weekly by ReproTech staff to ensure we can continuously evaluate each tank’s performance and nitrogen consumption. The daily status of each specimen is meticulously documented to ensure it is stored accurately and can be transported efficiently. Since entrance into ReproTech facilities is by appointment only, clients can rest easy knowing that their specimens are safeguarded by doors that are locked 24/7.

Our Florida facility provides clients and IVF professionals in southeast and eastern states with a convenient storage option for their reproductive specimens. To ensure the safest possible storage for our clients in this region, we built two Safe Storage Rooms in this facility that are able to withstand hurricane-force winds. Our Florida Room is designed and certified to withstand 330 mile per hour winds, exceeding all F.E.M.A. guidelines for hurricane safe rooms.

In this part of the United States, safety from flooding is also a necessity. Therefore, the exact location in South Florida was chosen because it is outside the 500 year floodplain, meaning it has less than a 1/5 of 1% chance of flooding in a given year. The 99.8% certainty of flood protection and being out of the area impacted by category 5 hurricanes, combined with the EF-5 storm shelter, provides clients with priceless peace of mind.

As an industry leader in long-term storage, ReproTech continues to explore systems, procedures and equipment that will ensure the continued safety of the reproductive specimens our clients have entrusted to us.
