Screening Algorithm

AABB recommends the dual enzyme immuno assay (EIA) approach for deferral and notification of Anti-HTLV-I/II EIA reactive donors. The #99-9 bulletin listed by the AABB and 21CFR 640.10.e clearly states that reactive unit should be further tested whenever a supplemental (additional, more specific) test has been approved for such use by FDA.
