LABS, Inc. Announces HCT/P ZIKA Virus Screening of Living Donors
Date:4/26/2017

LABS, Inc. (LABS) announced in December 2016 that two new Zika Virus (ZIKV) test offerings were added to its extensive test menu: Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) for ZIKV; and Enzyme Immunoassays (EIAs) specific for IgM and IgG ZIKV antibodies. At that time, LABS was only able to offer NAT screening for blood donors under an Investigational New Drug (IND) study protocol.

Now, as part of an ongoing commitment to enabling customers’ safe and timely decisions by delivering the highest quality, most accurate laboratory services, LABS is pleased to announce a third ZIKV test offering. LABS is participating in a second IND, with Grifols, a leader in the lab assay market, which will encompass HCT/P screening of living, or “heart-beating” donors. The results are to be used for Investigational Use Only and are not to be used to aid in diagnosis. While the healthcare community awaits final FDA Guidelines, this IND ZIKV option is intended to provide LABS customers with the most up-to-date products and services. If your organization is interested in ZIKV testing, please contact LABS.

For additional information about ZIKV, please visit the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
