When selecting a suitable donor, we always try to match the type of male partner of the couple being treated as closely as possible. We take into account not only height, eye and hair colour, blood group and Rh factor, but also interests that may be important to you.
We test our donors psychologically, genetically and for infectious diseases.
Men who were included in the donor programme underwent demanding tests and examinations: psychological interview, clinical examination, tests for sexually transmitted diseases (hiv, hbsag, hcv, syphilis), blood group and rh factor, genetic examination (karyotype, presence of cystic fibrosis gene mutations, spinal muscular atrophy).
All donors are preferably university educated. Sperm donation in the Slovak Republic is anonymous by law. Only sperm from donors screened according to Directive 2004/23/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council are used in the treatment with donated germ cells.
