UK and Canada Testing
In addition to being an Identity Disclosure (Cryobank America Open-ID) Donor, these donors have a ten-family unit limit. Because of this ten-family limit, a donor is only UK-compliant for a fixed amount of time. For more information, please contact us.
We test all donors for Cytomegalovirus (CMV), a widespread virus that nearly every adult has at one time or another. Although dormant after the initial infection, CMV stays in the body’s system for life. IgG-positive donors indicating a non-active CMV infection are accepted, while donors who are IgG-positive with an active CMV infection are not accepted.
If you have any questions or concerns, we suggest you discuss the CMV status of a donor with your doctor before purchasing units. We will have distinguishing donors available for purchase who are Health Canada compliant. For more information, please contact us.
