Legacy Opens Another State-of-The-Art Andrology Lab in Hoboken, New Jersey, Marking Milestone of Freezing Over One Trillion Sperm

Legacy's sophisticated operations allow them to handle a greater volume of sperm than any fertility clinic in North America

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy, the largest at-home fertility clinic for people with sperm, proudly announced a groundbreaking achievement—freezing over one trillion sperm. In response to increasing demand, the company has officially opened a new lab in Hoboken, NJ.

"Thanks to our growing patient population and consistent efforts of our clinical lab teams, Legacy has processed and cryogenically preserved close to 40,000 sperm vials corresponding to an approximate 1.26 trillion spermatozoa" Paul Simon, VP of Operations shared. This milestone solidifies Legacy's position as a leader in at-home male fertility solutions and underscores the company's commitment to investing in state of the art facilities.

"Launching a high complexity laboratory requires dedicated work and an attention to detail that doesn't just consider the operations, regulatory and safety needs but also precision in implementing processes that ensures the highest standards are delivered." - Unika Alexander, Manager of R&D Operations, stated.

Handling sperm at this scale has required the creation of custom Standard Operating Protocols, or SOPs, as well as a highly-trained team of lab technicians working with state-of-the art equipment. The new lab, built from the ground up, is considered best in class.

"Freezing over one trillion sperm is not just a numerical milestone; it's a testament to our rapid growth and big vision," said Khaled Kteily, Legacy's founder and CEO. "The opening of our newest lab in Hoboken proves that Legacy is setting a new standard in male fertility. There's lots more to come."

Legacy is an in-network solution that works with major insurance providers such as Aetna, Cigna, UnitedHealthcare and others. They also are partners with leading fertility benefit programs such as Carrot, Progyny, Maven and WINFertility. Legacy's commitment to operational excellence is evidenced by its growing number of research publications, including Semen Parameter Variability Among Users of At-Home Sperm Testing Kits in the BMC Urology Journal, as well as funding research at leading educational institutions like Harvard University.

The company's innovative approach allows clients to complete a range of services, including semen analysis, DNA fragmentation analysis, STI testing, and sperm cryopreservation all by producing a semen sample in the comfort of one's home and sending it off to one of Legacy's labs. If this wasn't impressive enough, they are also the only digital fertility clinic offering post-thaw analysis to ensure the viability of clients' sperm for freezing and multi-site storage for maximum sample security.
