The self-titled world's largest sperm bank, Cryos International, has relocated from New York to UCF's Research Park, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Cryos offers international services as well as an online portal to help potential parents find a suitable match. Users are able to select potential donors' race, hair color, eye color, height, weight and even blood type. Donors themselves can choose to remain anonymous while others can choose to reveal their names. Non-anonymous donors can be revealed to the donor child once he or she turns 18 and only after the child has contacted Cryos.
The Danish company, which started in 1987, has one other base of operations across the Atlantic in Denmark. According to Cryos' website, as of 2014, the bank currently donates to more than 70 countries.
Once a potential parent finds a suitable donor, sperm samples can then be shipped or picked up, though pick up is only available at their Denmark location. Prices range from roughly $41 for pick up to about $375 for delivery outside of Europe.
Samples can also be reserved for time periods ranging from three months to 10 years. Reservation prices vary between $40 for three months to almost $900 for ten years.
