As a test becomes available for HIV, the Government is still dragging it's heels. The work on the new facility in Scotland is only just being started, and consequently, it takes a further 2 years to implement heat-treatment in Scotland.

The SNBTS is able to make their Factor VIII product available for clinical use. The product is heat treated at 80 degrees C for 72 hours.

Note: The arrival of this heat-treated product has been delayed by 2 years due to the Government dragging it's heels over the work on the new fractionation facility in Scotland which was begun in 1985.
