Vitalant will test all successful blood donations for antibodies to
SARS-CoV-2, the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
The COVID-19 antibody test, authorized by the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) will indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to
the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus, regardless of whether they ever had symptoms.
COVID-19 antibody testing will be performed in addition to the standard
infectious disease testing all blood donations undergo.
Results will be available in 2-3 weeks.
