HMBANA Guidelines provide evidence-based direction to support the screening, handling, and distribution of a safe, optimal protocol by its member milk banks. They are not designed for use outside of member milk banks. The Guidelines address three layers of recipient protection from disease transmission. First, donors are screened for medical and lifestyle risk factors, and serum is screened for HIV, HTLV, syphilis, and Hepatitis B and C. Then, milk is pasteurized, a process that kills HIV and cytomegalovirus as well as other viruses and bacteria. Lastly, no milk is dispensed after pasteurization until a culture is negative for bacteriological growth.
