    I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

    HTLV type-1 is found in the Caribbean, Africa and in southern Japan.
    In the Netherlands, infections with HTLV-1 are found mainly in people fromSuriname
    , the Netherlands Antilles, and sometimes in drug users who work with needles. The virus
    can cause neurological disorders (HTLV-associated myelopathy/HAM, orTropical
    Spastic Paraparesis/TSP). Infection with HTLV-1 can lead later in life to
    a particular form of leukemia called adult T-cell leukemia.




    Transmission of this disease occurs through sexual contact, breast milk, blood products containing cells and dirty needles.

    Special test, delivery time is longer than other tests.

    Method used: Chemiluminescence Microparticle Immunoassay (CMIA)

    The result is good if it's negative.

    In case of a positive result, a confirmation test should be done

    Most infected people have no symptoms, but remain carriers of the virus. There is no vaccine against HTLV-I/II. If you register as a donor at Sanquin, your blood will be tested for HTLV-I/II at the first screening.
