Xytex works diligently to ensure that Canadians have a large group of diverse donors meeting the requirements of Health Canada. In order to be Canadian compliant in accordance with the regulations of Health Canada, there is additional testing done at the time the donor leaves a sample. Health Canada requires donors to be tested for both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea each time a Canadian sample is collected.
Xytex tests each donor for Cytomegalovirus (CMV), an extremely common virus that
nearly every adult has at one time or another. You will note the appropriate icon
beside each donor to reflect his CMV IgG status. Whether the icon indicates positive
or negative does not qualify or disqualify the donor. Xytex accepts samples from
a donor with an IgG positive result which indicates a non-active CMV infection. An IgM positive
result indicates an active CMV infection and the donor is considered unacceptable. Xytex recommends
that you discuss the CMV status of your donor with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
Once you have selected a donor or if you have questions, please call our Canadian distributors.
