HLA TESTING SERVICES
The Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory (HLA Lab) provides testing to support hematopoietic stem cell and solid organ transplantations by performing HLA genotyping in donors and recipients to assess the closeness of match and identify mismatches; chimerism testing to evaluate for post-transplant engraftment; HLA antibody testing to identify anti-HLA antibodies; and flow crossmatches to assess donor-recipient compatibility. In addition, the HLA Lab provides testing for transfusion medicine, as well as disease association and pharmacogenetics analysis.
We service Stanford Health Care, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and other transplant centers and hospitals in the Bay Area and beyond.
