As of June 15, 2020, Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is testing all blood donations for the COVID-19 antibody.
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is using the Roche Diagnostics Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Test and the Ortho VITROS Immunodiagnostic Products Anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG. These tests are authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization, which means it can be used only during the time of the Coronavirus pandemic crisis. This test is authorized by the FDA only for detecting the presence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 and is not intended for diagnosis of COVID-19.
The Blood Center is inviting donors who test positive for the antibodies to return and give convalescent plasma to help patients recover in local hospitals.
