The fertility laboratory provides three main services.

  1. Semen analysis to test fertility
  2. Storage of semen samples (usually for patients undergoing treatment that may make them infertile such as chemotherapy).
  3. Processing of semen samples for IUI treatments.

Over 8,500 men have been referred to us for long-term storage of semen samples since the 1970s. We are one of the largest and oldest sperm banks in the UK.
