HLA

Pathology & Lab Medicine

The rotation through the HLA laboratory is to provide an introduction to this high-complexity laboratory and the testing done within. During your time in the lab, you will be shown the different techniques that are used to perform tissue typing and anti-HLA antibody analysis. You will learn serological and molecular methods. Unless laboratory workload prohibits, you will be allowed to perform an HLA typing of yourself. You will also learn about the crossmatch.
