Over the years, we have expanded our genetic testing of donors as genetic knowledge and technology have advanced. As a result, not all donors have been tested for the same conditions or with the same methods. All donors have undergone genetic testing for Cystic Fibrosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy and Karyotyping. However, many donors have had more extensive testing performed. For a full list of our donors who have had Extended Genetic Testing performed please go to click HERE
Even if a donor has been evaluated for carrier status of the listed conditions below, a negative result reduces, but does not eliminate, the likelihood of the donor being a carrier. If you are a known carrier of a genetic condition please contact us, and we will provide a copy of the donor’s test reports to your physician and/or genetic counselor.
Seattle Sperm Bank currently tests all* donors for carrier status of the following conditions:
*Donors who joined Seattle Sperm Bank’s program prior to September 2015 may not have been tested for all of the conditions listed above. All donors, regardless of when they entered our program have been screened for Karyotyping, Cystic Fibrosis and Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
