from American Journal of Transplantation
Universal screening of potential organ donors and recipients for SARS‐CoV‐2 is now recommended prior to transplantation in the United States during the COVID‐19 pandemic. Challenges have included limited testing capacity, short windows of organ viability, brief lead time for notification of potential organ recipients, and the need to test lower respiratory donor specimens to optimize sensitivity.
