COVID-19 Antibody Testing for All Donations
October 17, 2020 - March 31, 2021
Testing for volunteer blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies is returning to Kentucky Blood Center. If you missed your opportunity for testing earlier this year, now’s your chance to find out if you have COVID-19 antibodies in-center and at our mobile blood drives.
With the goal of identifying additional potential CCP donors throughout the commonwealth, KBC will test all volunteer donations made in any of our six donation centers or at mobile blood drives through March 31, 2021 for COVID-19 antibodies. Donors will be notified of their antibody status via their donor portal within 7-10 days of their donation. Testing will not be done on autologous, therapeutic or directed donations.
Plasma derived from donations that test positive for the COVID-19 antibody could be designated as convalescent plasma and used to treat patients fighting COVID-19 at one of our partner hospitals. In addition, those with positive test results may be contacted regarding future convalescent plasma donations by our team.
