Search Canadian Compliant Donors

We work diligently to ensure that our Canadian families can select from a large group of diverse donors that meet the requirements of Health Canada.

We test all donors for Cytomegalovirus (CMV), an extremely common virus that nearly every adult has at one time or another. Although dormant after the initial infection, CMV stays in the body’s system for life. We accept 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. If you have any questions or concerns, we suggest you discuss the CMV status of a donor with your doctor prior to purchasing units. 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.
