Statewide — Coronavirus cases are still rising across the country and the world. As this continues, the need for convalescent plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients is great. To help identify potential donors Versiti, Inc., a national leader in blood health innovation, is now performing a screening test for COVID-19 antibodies on all successful donations.Because samples are collected at the end of the donation process, the test will not be performed if a donor is deferred or unable to complete their donation, nor can the test be provided on its own. The test will inform donors if they have antibodies reflective of a prior COVID-19 infection. The test does not screen for the virus itself and does not inform donors if they currently have COVID-19, nor does it indicate future immunity against the virus.Testing will be done at Versiti’s laboratory in Indianapolis. Donors can find their results through their online account at versiti.org or the Versiti app. Positive test results will also be mailed to the donor. Potential plasma donors can call 1-866-702-HOPE (866-702-4673) to donate or they can click here to sign up online.
