HLA Typing: How accurate is your pipetting robot?

Oct 05 2021

Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Typing and Matching

HLA typing is a genetic test necessary for all donors and recipients prior to organ transplant, as an inconsistency can result in organ rejection. Imprecise liquid handling or human errors during this procedure could lead to serious repercussions if the HLA types of patients and donors are not determined correctly, and automating the workflow can minimise these risks.

Precise liquid handling solutions for reproducible HLA typing workflows

Integra Biosciences offers a range of high quality liquid handling solutions designed to improve the reproducibility and throughput of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing workflows. The ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot, combined with the VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette, provides exceptional flexibility to any laboratory carrying out HLA typing, whether they’re using serological or sequence-based methods. 

Using the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot means that low volumes are pipetted with higher accuracy and precision compared to a manual workflow, which is particularly important in situations where samples can be small and precious. By combining the ASSIST PLUS with the VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette, users are not restricted by labware type, providing the option to switch between different processes and applications as the lab’s workflow demands. Users can even work across a wide volume range, simply by switching between VOYAGER pipettes. This makes the ASSIST PLUS a versatile tool for diagnostics labs and transfusion and transplant centres wishing to enhance their HLA typing capabilities.
