HLA typing

HLA typ·ing

tests done in order to determine if a patient has antibodies against a potential donor's HLA. The presence of antibodies means that a particular graft will be rapidly rejected; also used to establish paternity and in forensic medicine.

HLA typing by serology: During the last 40 years HLA typing to detect this polymorphism was undertaken by the serological method better known as the complement-dependent cytotoxicity assay (CDC).
In this optic, HLA typing emerges as an important tool able to discriminate individuals genetically susceptible to CD in at-risk groups such as those with autoimmune conditions (e.g., thyroiditis) (4).
Because of the lower throughput of the available technologies and to reduce the number of polymorphic sites to interrogate, early molecular strategies for clinical HLA typing focused on characterization of the antigen recognition site only (exons 2 and 3 for class I; exon 2 for class II).
Based on test type, the market is segmented into antibody screening, HLA typing, cross-matching tests, ABO blood tests, and antigen typing.
The comapny, through its recently acquired Olerup franchise, has a presence in the pre-transplant HLA typing market.
