Resumption of HAV IgG testing


Further to previous correspondence dated 04/10/18, I am happy to advise that the NVRL has been able to secure kits of unaffected lot numbers.

HAV IgG testing was restored the afternoon of Thur 4th Oct when an unaffected lot number was procured. All affected lot numbers have now been replaced and no further delays are anticipated.

We are currently working with the supplier Abbott Laboratories to ascertain the impact, if any, on previously tested samples and may be in touch further as necessary.
