Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Typing

Versiti Wisconsin’s Diagnostic Laboratories’ state-of-the-art Histocompatibility laboratory is designed to support solid organ and stem-cell transplant programs by providing rapid turnaround time for human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing.  We have been providing scientific expertise and technology leadership in molecular oncology and transplant medicine to improve patient outcomes.

Solid Organ Transplant Program

Services

  • HLA Class I and Class II typing to help identify the best available donor for a patient in need of a solid organ transplant
  • Testing to detect and identify antibodies to HLA Class I and Class II antigens to help identify the best donor for a patient with pre-formed HLA antibodies
  • Crossmatching to confirm donor and patient compatibility

Solid Organ Transplantation

  • Overview

    Patients facing transplant surgery need to be carefully matched with compatible donors. Versiti’s Diagnostic Laboratories specialize in identifying the best donors possible for patients who need a transplant. After transplant, tests to monitor immune status help the transplant surgeon identify possible instances of organ rejection to prevent loss of the transplanted organ.

    Versiti’s transplant immunology experts have an international reputation for diagnostic services, scientific excellence, and innovative approaches.

Our lab performs HLA Class I and Class II typing to help identify the best available donor for a patient in need of a solid organ transplant. Our lab also provides testing to detect and identify antibodies to HLA Class I and HLA Class II antigens to help identify the best donor for a patient with pre-formed HLA antibodies as well as crossmatching to confirm donor and patient compatibility. Our laboratory technical specialists and directors form strong relationships with our clinical partners, becoming part of the patient care team.

    Our combination of skilled technologists, meticulous antibody testing and HLA matching, and expert directors who offer personal clinical consultation to help to identify the best care for your patient make Diagnostic Laboratories a leader in Solid Organ Transplantation. Together, we work with you to help you find the best care—and the best match—for your patients.

Stem-Cell Transplant Portfolio

Services

  • High resolution for HLA Class I and Class II typing to help identify the best available donor for a patient in need of a stem-cell transplant
  • Rapid HLA haplotype screening by short tandem repeat (STR) assay
  • KIR genotyping to aid in selection of the best donor for particular cases
  • Post-transplant chimerism testing for engraftment and relapse monitoring

Stem Cell Transplantation

  • Overview

    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.

  • Approach

    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.
