Confirmatory Typing

If a 6/6 match is found, the transplant physician must perform confirmatory typing on the donor before the transplant can be scheduled.

The transplant physician notifies Canadian Blood Services of the donor(s) he/she has selected for confirmatory typing.

Canadian Blood Services then contacts the donor and arranges for blood samples to be taken and shipped to the transplant centre. At this time, infectious disease testing is also performed on the prospective donor's blood to ensure that he or she does not carry any diseases that would be harmful for the recipient. The donor may be kept "on hold" for up to three months while the transplant physician and patient decide how to proceed.
