The DNA matching step is necessary so that the milk we receive is matched to our qualified donors. This safety step ensures that only milk from qualified moms is accepted for production. The only information that Prolacta generates about the donor from her DNA is the Donor and Milk IDs. A series of 32 numbers is generated from the DNA sample to uniquely identify the donor, which is then matched to the same 32 numbers in the milk. Prolacta does not generate any other genetic information about the donor. The Donor ID contains no information about the donor’s health or heredity. Prolacta does not retain samples of the donor’s isolated DNA once the matching of donor to donation is complete. The only thing that is retained is the unique 32-number series.
