Clinical Long-term Storage of Reproductive Tissues
The Family Fertility CryoBank (FFCB) is an incorporated business in the State of California. We provide care above all recommended or required regulations from the state and federal regulators. Our storage facility the FertiVault™, is biometric secured, has video cameras, constant monitoring and for the past 25 years, there have been NO medical legal or tank issues. This has become the main reason why IVF programs across the US are moving their long-term cryopreservation to Family Fertility CryoBank
The use of FertiVault can displace real patient liability. Previous issues in Cleveland, San Francisco and other cities have actually closed IVF programs. As a result, Martin D. Bastuba, MD the owner of the FFCB has developed a patient and corporate friendly organization with a billing specialist team dedicated to the entire process. When billing is performed properly, the retention rate for sperm exceeds 56% per year while eggs and embryos are greater than 82% per year.
Most IVF program will retain their reproductive tissues while patients are in cycle and until the child is born, which is approximately one year later. After carefully analyzing the cost of storage, the limited lab space requirements, staff dedication to billing only as specialists as well as their real liability, most IVF practices clearly demonstrated that they could make more money in an efficient way by sending ALL their reproductive tissues to FFCB and getting these tissues back as required on a pre-scheduled basis.
FFCB has a dedicated team of specialists who deal with nothing more that cryopreservation billing. It is not a secondary job that they try to complete when working on other projects. It is their primary responsibility. Our collection protocols are complex but very effective. We have collected money from patients living across the globe. I am very proud of the job they do for all our clients. As you know, several IVF practices have closed their doors because of issues related to long term storage. FFCB is an independent corporation, designed to safeguard and protect all of Dr. Bastuba’s assets as well as yours.
FFCB stores cryopreserved materials including eggs, embryos, sperm, ovarian tissue, testicular tissue and other tissues. FFCB offers our clients (patients, IVF centers and other companies such as tumor genetic corporations) 3 distinct storage plans including, please see below for more information.
