Transfer Specimens to Reprotech for Storage

To transfer semen, embryo, or oocyte specimens to RTL for storage, patients are required to:

  1. Complete paperwork to authorize the transfer
  2. Provide serology test results for HIV 1&2 (AIDS)
  3. The fees for the transfer and storage must be prepaid by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, check or money order.

Once the above requirements have been completed, RTL staff will contact the patient’s clinic to arrange for the transfer. RTL recommends the use of two transport shippers for the transfer if there is more than one straw or vial of embryos, semen or oocytes being transferred. RTL documents the successful transfer through the use of a temperature exposure indicator, which monitors the transport shipper's environment throughout the shipping process. Please note that two recent independent publications document the safety of transported embryos; 2009 ASRM, 2005 ASRM. RTL cannot verify nor guarantee the viability of the specimens being placed into long term storage or being transferred to a clinic. Click here for more information on shipping insurance.
