Brian .... This is not meant to be a flame but do I understand you
that if a donor to your blood bank comes back HIV positive on
Elisa you don't believe it? Do you use the blood anyway?
If you dont use the blood, then you dont notify the donor so
they can go on donating blood which is going to be re-
jected because of the off-chance the Elisa might be correct?

Why dont you tell your donors they came back Elisa positive but it
may not mean anything and recommend them see their doctors?
