Versiti’s state-of-the-art Histocompatibility laboratories support active stem-cell transplant programs by providing rapid turnaround time for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics testing with value-added consultation services.
More than 10,000 patients worldwide have received a stem cell transplant from an unrelated donor. Hematopoietic stem cells give rise to all blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Prior to receiving a stem cell transplant, patients need to be carefully matched with the best possible donors. After the transplant, laboratory test results play a significant role in a physician’s evaluation of the patient.
Versiti’s Diagnostic Laboratories specialize in compatibility testing to identify the best donor possible for patients who need a stem cell transplant. Following transplant, tests to monitor immune status give the physician an extremely sensitive indicator of success or failure.
Our transplant immunology experts have an international reputation for diagnostic services, scientific excellence, and innovative approaches.
Versiti’s state-of-the-art Diagnostic Laboratories are designed to support active stem-cell transplant programs by providing rapid turnaround time for Histocompatibility testing, infectious disease markers, and post-transplant chimerism testing. Our lab performs high resolution typing for all relevant HLA Class I and Class II loci to help identify the best available donor for a patient in need of a stem cell transplant. Our lab also provides rapid HLA haplotype screening by a unique short tandem repeat (STR) assay as well as KIR genotyping and HLA antibody analysis to aid in selection of the best possible donor in difficult cases. We also offer a portfolio of highly sensitive transplant chimerism testing to monitor patients for successful hematopoietic and red cell engraftment as well as the detection of potential graft failure or relapse.
Versiti’s transplant support approach is built upon forming strong relationships with our clinical partners and becoming part of the patient care team. Our combination of meticulous laboratory practices, skilled technical staff, and expert directors who offer personal clinical consultation make Versiti Diagnostic Laboratories a leader in Stem Cell Transplantation support.
