Sperm are also utilized for intrauterine insemination (IUI) or for the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures. For the procedures associated with IVF, eggs and embryos are also used.
Cryopreservation helps the individual to preserve their eggs, sperms or embryos for a long-time. The eggs, sperm or embryos are frozen using liquid nitrogen in -320 degrees Fahrenheit. Special cryoprotective agents are used to prevent the damage to the cells during the process.
