Some of these CLI donor numbers are also
being found under International Cryogenics, ReproMed, Ltd. (Canada), Reproductive Resources, Follas, and University of Nebraska. CLI started out as Genetic Laboratories in 1970 and was the first private sperm bank in the U.S. (founded by John Olson). It changed to Cryogenic Laboratories in 1976. Archives mention that they were able to freeze sperm in the 70's. A former donor (from early 70's to mid 80's) remembers seeing pins stuck in a map with the locations of where the sperm was shipped back in the early days, and the pins were all over the map, thoughout the whole U.S. and maybe more. Even Alaska. In March of 2002, CLI was bought out by Genetics & IVF Institute Family of Cryobanks, the owners of Fairfax Cryobank, but it still has its own facility. Fairfax and CLI may share some donor numbers, but they are for different donors.
Associated doctors/facilities: Dr. Debrovner, Dr. Hugh Melnick, Fertility Centers of CA, and Mt Sinai. Donor numbers with the letters in front of them are likely the Fertility Center of CA- Orange donor numbers. Please check those lists for matches, too. There have been several reports of Repro Lab families not receiving the donor sperm that they had purchased. See the Repro Lab page on our "Which Sperm Bank" page (under Helpful Info tab).
