Shipping and delivery of eggs

    Cryos delivers frozen donor eggs to our network of cooperating and reference IVF clinics. To register your clinic as part of the Cryos network, simply put your clinic’s name and address in the form during the ordering process. Our office will contact them directly to finish the process. All donor eggs must be shipped to a participating clinic.

      Nitrogen – LN2 

      Frozen donor egg straws are placed in a liquid nitrogen charged, dry shipper tank, which is placed inside a transport box. The tank will keep the donor eggs frozen for up to 12 days. To ensure the correct temperature is consistent an internal logging system monitors the tanks 24/7 during transport. 

      Frozen donor eggs must be stored in the nitrogen tank until use or be moved to another liquid nitrogen tank at your IVF clinic.
