Nucleic acid amplification test

New variant Creutzfeldt Jakob disease (nvCJD)

A new variation of CJD that initially presents itself with psychiatric symptoms at a much younger age, on average 28 years old, than traditional CJD. The disease always leads to death and runs its course in about 18 months.


Efnon-hemolytic febrile transfusion reaction

Non-hemolytic febrile transfusion reaction (NHFTR)

A transfusion complication defined as a rise in temperature by one degree Celsius or more during or within 24 hours of the completion of a blood transfusion.

Nucleic acid amplification test (NAT)

NAT testing is expected to further reduce transfusion-associated transmission of HIV, HBV and HCV. This type of testing will be the most manually intensive, most complex and expensive testing ever undertaken to screen the blood supply.
