Semen Bank Storage
Frozen semen is stored in the form of straws or pellets in liquid nitrogen cryo-tanks at a temperature of -396°F. At our facility, we freeze semen in pellets, but we do store straws that are shipped to us from other storage facilities for future bitch inseminations.
Because we are an AKC approved frozen semen storage facility, there is a great deal of paperwork that has to be done anytime semen comes in or is shipped out of our clinic. There is an annually renewed contract that the semen owner fills out prior to the semen arriving at our clinic. It is convenient for our clients to have the semen we froze stored at our facility as they do not have to pay to ship it in from other storage sites when they want to use it.
