New Life - Egg donation agency

Donors’ screening and testing

The tests are carried out by a HFEA recognised clinic.

UK guidelines require all prospective donors to be screened for the following:

  • full blood count
  • blood group
  • HIV 1 and 2
  • hepatitis B
  • hepatitis B core
  • hepatitis C
  • syphilis
  • HTLV 1 and 2
  • chlamydia
  • gonorrhoea
  • cytomegalovirus (CMV)
  • a hormone blood test, including AMH

The clinic will also perform a chromosomal analysis and cystic fibrosis screening.

The donors are non-smokers and a test is performed to confirm this.
