California Cryobank (CCB) Introduces Assisted Reproductive Technology (A.R.T.) Vials

Los Angeles, CA, August 2005 - California Cryobank Inc. (CCB), the leading U.S. and international sperm bank, now offers A.R.T. (Assisted Reproductive Technology) vials specifically designed for use in a variety of assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization, GIFT, ZIFT, or ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection).

Beginning August 1, clients will be offered the chance to purchase A.R.T. vials in both intracervical (ICI) and intrauterine insemination (ICI) preparations. Since fewer sperm are required for A.R.T. procedures, A.R.T. vials contain fewer total motile cells.

A.R.T. vials are available for selected California Cryobank donors.

"Clients have requested vials to use in their Assisted Reproductive Procedures. CCB is pleased to meet this client request with our new A.R.T. vials," said Dr. Sims.

For more information, please visit A.R.T. vials or any of California Cryobank services, or contact our Client Services Department at 866-927-9622.
