COVID-19 Antibody Testing
Versiti is pleased to announce the SARS CoV-2 antibody test will be performed on all donations beginning mid-to-late August as part of our standard testing. We will be conducting this test as we continue to fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic with the help of our donors.
The antibody test will be performed on all successful donations at every Versiti blood center and blood drive. This test will be done automatically on tubes that are collected as part of the donation, in addition to FDA mandated infectious disease testing for all blood donations Versiti already performs.
The test will inform donors if they have antibodies reflective of a prior COVID-19 infection and is not to inform donors if they currently have COVID-19. For more information see FDA.gov and Donor FAQs. Donors with these antibodies may be eligible to donate COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP), a special type of donation used to treat sick patients fighting COVID.
