There is no substitute for the lifesaving gift of blood. Please consider a blood donation today.
As of March 26, 2021 Versiti will stop testing for the COVID-19 Antibody on blood donations.
The limited FDA authorization for performing these tests on blood was intended for use in identifying COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP) donors. Due to the rapid expansion of improved pharmaceutical therapies for treating COVID-19, we will discontinue CCP collection. This means Versiti is additionally required to discontinue testing.
We thank all of our donors who continue to contribute to better patient outcomes in all of our communities. There is no substitute for the gift of blood donation. It is precious. It is perishable. And the need for it is vital.
We are stronger because of you, we are stronger together!
