The donor recruitment process never stops at the Seattle Sperm Bank (http://www.seattlespermbank.com and ESB-USA http://www.europeanspermbankusa.com). Stringent eligibility requirements result in less than 1% of applicants making it through the process to become fully qualified donors. The Seattle Sperm Bank distributes donor sperm to clinics throughout the United States, and is the largest exporter of U.S. donor sperm to countries across the globe. We have helped thousands of married and unmarried couples, same-sex couples and single women through the process of selecting an appropriate donor. By combining medical and laboratory expertise with a personal, compassionate approach, the Seattle Sperm Bank seeks to ensure that our clients worldwide receive a product of the highest scientific quality that meets their unique needs in creating their family. We are one of only three US sperm banks accredited by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).
