Abstract

The study discusses the significance of post-transfusion donor/recipient sample banking for hepatitis C virus identification and development of diagnostic tests. The reasons for donor/ /recipient sample archiving, which is obligatory in some countries, are forwarded together with characteristics and achievements of such repositories worldwide. The importance of emergingpathogen monitoring and the role of donor/recipient repositories in this context was also stressed. Particular attention was paid to the EU “Blood and Organ Transmissible Infectious Agents Project” as example of such repository prepared by a Consortium of scientific research centers from Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland and Great Britain.
