Safe allografts start with our donors, donor recover partners, and procedures that ensure that the gift of donated tissues is maximized.

Donor Screening & Reviews
BBA donor screening and recovery partners meet or exceed all industry standards. Following consent, an extensive evaluation process includes
- A detailed review of medical history and any lifestyle or behavioral issues. Individuals identified with risk factors for, or clinical evidence of, relevant communicable diseases and disease agents (RCDADS) are ruled out or later disqualified.
- An on-site review of relevant medical records to evaluate other rule-out conditions.
- A physical assessment just prior to tissue recovery to confirm donor identity, evaluate the accuracy of medical and social history collected, and look for signs/symptoms of other disqualifying conditions or risk factors.
Donor Recovery and Processing
Extreme care is taken to ensure that donor tissues are recovered, processed, and packaged appropriately. We believe the best way to honor donors is to maximize the number of individuals helped through their generous donation. Safeguarding the public trust by providing safe, sterile human allograft tissue is the primary goal of our processing efforts.
Stringent tissue donor screening, recovery, storage, and shipping guidelines are followed to best preserve the allografts for their intended function.
