our mission

To provide the highest quality reproductive and stem cell services, guided by dedicated customer focus, unmatched scientific excellence, and innovative leadership.

WHERE WE STARTED

California Cryobank was founded in 1977 by Dr. Cappy Rothman and Dr. Charles Sims to help their patients achieve their dreams of family. Initially a small sperm bank, it was one of two in the country and grew over time as more and more physicians began referring their patients. By the mid-1980s, California Cryobank had helped define the FDA donor qualification standards and expanded to service all of the United States. In 1997 we launched California Cryobank's stem cell services division, which grew to become a recognized industry leader in the US.

WHERE WE ARE NOW

From our humble beginnings, California Cryobank has grown into the largest donor gamete bank in the world. In 2018, we joined forces with CBR to become the largest newborn stem cell bank in the world. We continue to focus on innovative services, scientific excellence, and unmatched customer experience. After 40 years, hundreds of employees, and thousands of families created and protected, one thing has never changed...when you succeed, we succeed.

WHEN YOU SUCCEED, WE SUCCEED

We love hearing client stories and seeing photos of happy, healthy families. To that end, we've asked clients across all our businesses to tell their stories, in their words. From stories of heartbreak to happiness and hope to joy, be prepared to cry, laugh, and be inspired.
