The aim of the donor programme is to provide sex cells for the recipients who, due to health reasons, do not have their own sex cells and request the workplace for donation of sex cells intended and tested for donation programmes.
Donation of the sex cells is made on the basis of a donation contract made by and between the donor and the donee – the SPLN Assisted Reproduction Centre (ARC).
The donor will provide the donated gametes to the infertile couple treated in the ARC on the basis of a confirmed consent for the use of the donor sperms/oocytes.
Laboratory tests required for donors of reproductive human cells collected through our workplace.
For the donor of the reproductive cells, the performance of these laboratory tests is required to assess the risk of cross contamination.
a) the presence of the HIV 1, Anti-HIV 1 virus,
b) the presence of the HIV 2, Anti-HIV 2 virus,
c) the presence of the Hepatitis B, HBsAg, and Anti-HBc virus,
d) the presence of the Hepatitis C, Anti-HCV-AB virus
Under certain circumstances, additional laboratory tests may be required depending on the traveller’s and the exposure history of the human tissue donor.
