Frozen Donor Eggs from Fairfax Egg Bank℠
Here at the Genetics & IVF Institute, donor egg recipients can choose from either fresh or frozen donor eggs. Frozen donor eggs are available from our in-house egg bank, Fairfax Egg Bank℠, which gives patients more choice and opportunity to find their ideal egg donor.

Frozen egg technology is relatively new, so data reflecting the long-term success of frozen donor eggs as opposed to fresh donor eggs is limited. However, our program has experienced live births from frozen eggs and in the lab we have seen similar progression with frozen eggs as we see with fresh eggs. Furthermore, our program uses the same techniques with frozen eggs that have been reported in the literature to have comparable success rates with fresh eggs in appropriate patients.

Who are the egg donors of Fairfax Egg Bank℠?
The egg donors of Fairfax Egg Bank℠ undergo the same intensive screening process that all the egg donors of the Genetics & IVF Institute undergo. They are healthy, college-educated women between the ages of 19 and 33. Each egg donor undergoes a very thorough screening and testing process, ensuring you the highest-quality donor eggs available anywhere. Only a very small percentage of egg donors who apply are actually accepted into the program because few meet the program’s selective standards.
Donor egg recipients can select an egg donor by browsing our online database using criteria such as ethnicity, physical characteristics, educational history, and other characteristics. Childhood and current photos of each egg donor are also available. To visit the Fairfax Egg Bank℠ website and learn more, click here.
