Brighton Fertility Associates (BFA) is a private limited company that prepares and stores sperm for either personal or donation usage. Frozen sperm is fully screened for patient protection in line with current regulation, and will only be supplied for use in licensed fertility treatment centres. BFA also provides IUI treatment on site for those using both donor and partner sperm. The BFA centre is licensed by the HFEA.
The company operates a quality system to ensure that all processes are performed to regulation and defined quality standards. BFA protocols and systems are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure sperm analysis and storage is performed within all accepted national standards and advice available. This will include professional guidance from, but not limited to, Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, Association of Clinical Embryologists, Association of Biomedical Andrologists, Care Quality Commission and National Gamete Donation Trust.
Our mission is to provide a modern, open and improved UK sperm bank and provide a supportive and professional sperm storage service for male patients in Sussex. Our vision is to create a more informative donation process and to ensure patients have the choice of a UK based donor bank. This is important for future parents to make an informed choice, and it is also vitally important for children born from donation, who may want to know background information about their biological father.
BFA also provides secure and specialist fertility storage in a licensed unit, for those wishing to store sperm for future use, long or short term back up or whether for medical or personal reasons.
WE ARE NOW PERFORMING MORE SCREENING TESTS ON OUR DONORS THAN ANY OTHER SPERM BANK
