Pioneers in cryopreservation
As part of a global leader in women’s health, City Fertility and CHA Medical Group, we have access to state-of-the-art fertility preservation technology.
With CHA Medical Group being the first in the world to develop the vitrification (rapid freezing) method of cryopreservation, now a standard method used globally for egg, sperm and embryo freezing and storage, you can confidently safeguard your selected donor sperm and embryos (where applicable) for future use.
What is Cryopreservation?
Cryopreservation also knowns as vitrification is the procedure whereby cells are frozen to preserve them for future use. Scientists freeze the cells using a special media then keep the vials in liquid nitrogen at minus 196C. Sperm, eggs and embryos can be stored for many years while maintaining a reasonable quality.
