HLA Typing

The laboratory provides a HLA typing service for researchers at the WIMM and HIU.

We use SSP-PCR to do high-resolution typing of alleles in these loci:

HLA-A, HLA-B, HLA-C, Bw, DRB1, DRB3/4/5 and DQB1.

We also use SSP-PCR and SBT for further subtyping of A and B locus alleles.

We also maintain a database of over 10,000 typing and subtyping results.

If you have any enquiries about the service, please contact Tim Rostron.

Or alternatively, ring the lab. on extension 22758.

Results will be sent preferably via e-mail and will be in this format.

For an efficient typing, details of sample preparation and DNA concentration are here.
