Who we are

Androcryos is a cryogenic depository specialising in the secure storage of human biological material associated with fertility treatment. We service medical fertility specialists, and facilitate scenarios where conventional conception is not an option.

Androcryos fortifies the medical fertility and infertility sector by offering a full-function sperm donor program alongside our andrology laboratory. Artificial insemination is performed on request from medical practitioners and private individuals or couples.

Our philosophy

Androcryos ensures that all fertility treatment and storage processes are handled in a professional, ethical and discreet manner. We guarantee professional, ethical and discreet services – never forgetting that our scientific method and technologies are here to serve all the women and men who need help in realising and safeguarding their dream of fostering a family.

Healthy, genetically sound babies remain the continual focus of everything we do. Our laboratory processes, equipment, procedures and ethical approach is maintained by a group of experienced professionals who have been active in the field for over sixty years.

Unavailable to previous generations, fertility treatment options have become an ongoing and inevitable part of our collective future. At Androcryos we strive to keep a keen eye on the latest relevant developments in science, technology, ethics, and policy implementation.

Our past

Androcryos, previously trading as Cryobank, was established in 1984, and has maintained an ongoing record of ethical and professional practice. In South Africa we were the first to offer a sperm donor program alongside an andrology laboratory.

Our future

Androcryos aims to be Africa's premier cryogenic depository facility of human biological material associated with fertility processes.
