Providing peace of mind
As of January 1, 2018, all new donors with Seattle Sperm Bank are tested with Myriad’s Foresight Panel (175 conditions tested).
Seattle Sperm Bank used Myriad’s Universal Carrier Screening (102 conditions tested) on all donors who entered our program since August 2016.
Over the years, we have expanded our genetic testing of donors as genetic knowledge and technology continue to advance. As a result, not all donors have been tested for the same conditions or with the same methods. However, all donors have undergone screening and testing for the conditions listed here, if not more.
Smarter Donor Search
To better serve our clients, we have created a donor search tool with filtering options, to show only donors that have been genetically tested, and found to be negative for, any conditions you choose from the list. So, for example, if you are a known carrier for Pendred Syndrome, you could select that condition from the list, and then select “Find Match” on the top right of the donor search tool. The resulting matches would only show donors who were tested and found to be negative for Pendred Syndrome.
Seattle Sperm Bank can help guide you through your options. If you have any genetic testing related questions, you can schedule a time with our Genetic Counselor, Katherine Hornberger, HERE.
Please note: Even if a donor has been evaluated for carrier status, a negative result reduces, but does not eliminate, the chance of the donor being a carrier. If you are a known carrier of a genetic condition please contact us or use our Donor Search tool, and we can provide you a list of donors who have been screened for this condition and found to be negative. If you do not know your carrier status, you can easily find out by ordering a discounted saliva kit at Myriad’s website below.
