Safety Statement

THESE PRODUCTS ARE FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY; are not intended for direct therapeutic or diagnostic use in humans or animals, or for use in in vitro diagnostic procedures.



Each donor is tested at collection site and found non-reactive (negative) by an FDA-approved method for the presence of HIV-I, Hepatitis B Virus, Hepatitis C Virus, STS and CHAGAS.

However, testing cannot offer complete assurance that HIV-1, Hepatitis B Virus, and Hepatitis C Virus are absent. All human-sourced Products should be handled at the Biological Safety Level 2 to minimize exposure of potentially infectious Products, as recommended in the CDC-NIH Manual, Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories, revised 2009.
