Testing

All tissue and blood samples are tested for infectious diseases by a CLIA Certified Lab, including testing for AIDS with Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT by TMA) — the newest and most reliable test to confirm the presence or absence of HIV and HCV early following exposure. Our comprehensive battery of testing also includes: HBsAG: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, HBcAb: Hepatitis B Core Antibody, HCVAb: Hepatitis C Antibody, HIV1/2/Ab: Human Immunodeficiency Virus Types ½ and O Antibody, HCV NAT: Hepatitis C Virus, HIV NAT: Human Immunodeficiency Virus, HBV NAT: RPR/STS or Equivalent: Syphilis. As an accredited member of the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB), all of our testing and processing of donated tissue meet or exceed all AATB standards and FDA regulations. All test results are evaluated by a team of specialists and physicians from the infectious disease, pathology and tissue banking fields.
