Most labs test in groups, where six different donors have their blood pooled and tested. "The unfortunate part about that is once you determine a positive pool it could be too late.Those donors that come in with low vicemic loads of West Nile can potentially be missed when you have pools of 6.By us being able to pool individual pools we'll be able to pick it up," says Janowiak. If West Nile is not picked up, it can be transmitted during a blood transfusion. Most labs don't have the equipment nor staff to do individual testing. Janowiak says, "We are one of the only sites in the country to do that and it amounts to a safer blood supply."
