Anyone used cryozoom?(13 Posts)
I am due to start a frozen cycle and need to use an IVF courier. The centre has recommended cryozoom or Kynisi. Cryozoom doesn't seem to have a website. Has anyone here used them?
I am too, this very minute, looking at both Cryozoom & Kynisi & so far found very bad reviews about Kynisi & no website for Cryozoom.
I'll keep looking into Cryozoom & an alternative to Kynisi.
Thanks shamm. I keep wondering whether it's better to do it myself (my clinic allows for that) but I'm worried I'd be a nervous wreck
I was just thinking this myself Dan216 but like you, I feel stressed by this process already so probably not the best idea.
Also the google listed number for Cryozoom no longer works, or rather they can't be reached on that number but the girl that answered tgave me an email address email@example.com & a mobile number which doesn't fill me will confidence.
May I ask what country are you transferring from & to?
Both my centres are in London; which is where I live so that's why I was considering self transfer
ah okay. i'm trying for cape town to portugal ....
I am looking and can't find Cyrozoom either so I am dismissing them, my Greek clinic has also recommended IVF Couriers but at the mo looking at £1200+ potentially. Both they and Kynisi say possible cheaper if they have others at the same time so I have to see if they have over the next 2 months. I don't think taking it yourself is safe, its precious cargo and needs to be handled properly, what if delay or something on plane, I would have no idea what impact that would have or what to do!
DON'T USE cryozoom! We were recommended these by our clinics (Homerton and Dundee), but they are TERRIBLE, I contacted them in early Jan, paid them in early Feb, still waiting for transfer and it's mid March. Totally disorganised, never get back to us, seems liek a dodgy one man band called Sunil Gossai - don't go there. It adds an extra layer of anxiety to what is already a stressful process.
