About Us

About ImageReproductive Diagnostics, Inc. (RDI) was founded in 1984 in Columbus, OH as an infertility testing laboratory and storage facility for frozen sperm. We quickly expanded to include Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) procedures. Our facilities are specifically designed to enable cryopreservation and long- term storage for sperm, eggs, and embryos, as well as associated tissues. We have established working relationships with multiple physicians and practices in the Columbus and surrounding areas to offer accurate, reliable, high quality andrology testing and services at reasonable prices.  RDI employs staff with over 80 years of combined experience in the reproductive industry. All technicians have science or medical backgrounds and training, and we look forward to working with you. Your success is our success.

In addition, RDI follows the guidelines of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). We are also registered with the FDA (FEI# 3003409945) and follow all requirements for CFR 1271 Subpart C and other applicable regulations. Statistics for assisted reproductive technology procedures are reported to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) through Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
