- sperm bank is where sperm is collected, frozen, and stored to keep it in perfect condition indefinitely. To achieve this, special containers are used that maintain very low temperatures with liquid nitrogen, in this way it is possible to preserve the spermatozoa to be used in treatments such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or artificial insemination.
To prevent the low temperature from affecting the sperm, the sample must first go through a process in which substances called cryoprotectants are added. Subsequently, they are subjected to a progressive freezing process, that is, the temperature is gradually controlled until the sample is submerged in liquid nitrogen. Thanks to this procedure, when the sperm is thawed, it continues with the same quality it had at the beginning of the process, regardless of the time.
