Each testis biopsy specimen transported to our laboratory for processing is $650.00. Availability and times for this service are limited and prior coordination between the patient, surgeon, and New York Cryo is required. Once you request this service we will contact you and your surgeon to find out the expected number of specimens and to coordinate. This fee is only for processing of the tissue. Tissue cryostorage is available as an add-on service. You will not be charged until we discuss with you and the surgeon the procedure and commit, in writing, to process your specimens. Please complete the information requested and we will contact you to discuss the process.
Included in this cost:
- Processing of a single specimen*
- Documentation of the presence (or absence) of sperm including quantification and image documentation
*For clarity, if both right and left testis biopsies are performed then the charge is twice the amount shown here. If a microTESE has been performed the charge will depend on the number of specimens received. Please contact us for pricing.
Not included in the cost:
- Storage of the processed tissue. If the tissue is to be stored at New York Cryo please add this service.
- Transport of the tissue from the facility at which it was retrieved to New York Cryo.
