    High Resolution typing for HLA-A, HLA-B, HLA-C, HLA-DRB1, HLA-DRB3,4,5, HLA-DQA1, HLA-DQB1, HLA-DPA1, and HLA-DPB1 loci by next generation DNA sequencing (NGS).

    2377 - HLA-KIR Genotyping

    DNA based typing to identify the presence of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) genes.

    2380 - HLA Haplotype by STR

    A rapid screening test for potential sibling donors for blood & marrow transplant patients. The test must be ordered for the patient and each potential donor.

    2722 - HLA Loss of Heterozygosity Evaluation

    This test is intended for patients with confirmed disease relapse post-hematopoietic cell transplant to evaluate the presence or absence of genomic loss of heterozygosity in the HLA region in malignant cell populations.

    4220 - Engraftment Post-Transplant Evaluation - Blood

    Contact laboratory if STAT testing is needed. Engraftment pre-transplant testing for informative locus is required for post-transplant and STAT testing to be possible.
