Testing Operations Laboratory
Our Testing Operations Laboratory is among the best in the nation and continues to remain on the forefront of cutting-edge technology in developing new and improved ways to maintain the safest blood supply possible.
When Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) became a safety concern of the blood supply in 1985, we helped develop the original HIV Antigen test that was eventually used throughout the United States.
We were the first to implement Individual Donor Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) for HIV and West Nile Virus, the first to perform free cholesterol testing as a donor benefit, the first to offer prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood testing to men for prostate cancer screening, and the first to provide hepatitis B antibody testing.
We have been instrumental in providing data and assistance with several studies such as Chagas, West Nile Virus, and Hepatitis B Virus.
We are a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensed facility, and also hold current certifications for the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) as well as accreditation with the American Association of Blood Banks, Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, State of California Department of Public Health, and the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Office of Health Care Quality.
The testing laboratory maintains internal Quality Control programs and proficiency testing. Blood specimens are processed utilizing advanced technology with FDA licensed test kits and reagents.
