IMPORTANT INDUSTRY NEWS: Requirements for West Nile Virus Testing

The FDA has issued a guidance for industry that describes the FDA’s approach to reducing the risk of transmission of West Nile Virus (WNV) from living donors of HCT/Ps. The FDA is recommending the use of an FDA-licensed NAT to test living donors on HCT/Ps recovered from June 1st through October 31st every year. For establishments intending to import HCT/Ps into the United States, the FDA recommends that donors be tested year-round for WNV by NAT. 

A copy of the guidance can be downloaded here. Memorial Blood Centers’ donor testing menu includes an FDA-cleared WNV test.
