Project Management

From the moment you get in touch with your request, you’ll be in direct contact with an Account Manager who will be on hand to answer all your questions and keep you updated throughout the project.

We know how important your time is and will work with you on a one-to-one basis to tailor the service we provide to your needs. This can include:

  • Arranging couriers to collect your materials
  • Formulating a plan that meets strict deadlines
  • Providing expert feedback on your results.

We’re here to make your project run smoothly, whatever it takes.

HLA Typing – Intermediate and high-resolution Human Leukocyte Antigen genotyping

HLA typing can be used for a multitude of reasons; being but not limited to:-

  • High resolution typing to support patient/donor transplantation
  • Anti-HLA Antibody screening and identification
  • HLA typing for disease association, e.g. Coeliac, Ankylosing Spondylitis & Narcolepsy
  • HLA typing for drug hypersensitivity
  • Genetic mutations testing, e.g. HFE and CCR5

We perform genotyping of the following HLA genes: HLA-A, HLA-B, HLA-C, HLA-DRB1, HLA-DRB3, HLA-DRB4, HLA-DRB5, HLA-DQA1, HLA-DQB1, HLA-DPA1, HLA-DPB1.

We will work with you to determine which level of HLA typing is best suited to your project, and help you navigate the complexity of the HLA system and its genetic loci.

HLA typing data can be reported in a variety of different formats to suit your needs. Given the complexity of HLA nomenclature, we welcome queries to help you better understand what your data means (i.e. level of typing resolution, ambiguity strings, novel alleles, etc).

Our completely bespoke service offering will enable you to achieve the best outcome, with the desired turnaround time and competitive pricing.

DNA Extraction

We provide extraction of DNA from a variety of different biological sources and sample formats, including:

  • Whole blood
  • Buccal swabs
  • Cryopreserved cells
  • Buffy coat
  • Saliva

Our service includes returning the DNA information, as well as providing quantification data so you know exactly the concentration and volume of your sample. This means you can store vast quantities in your freezers, while only using minimum space to do so.

Contacting us about your project sooner rather than later enables us to promptly extract the DNA. Crucially, this means you are not compromising the quality of your sample so you can use it later for your project.

Speak with a project manager today for more information on how this solution can become a reality.

Virology Testing

We carry out virology screening by ELISA for the detection of the following factors:

  • CMV (antibody)
  • HIV1/2 (antibody/antigen)
  • Hepatitis B (antigen) and C (antibody) infection

Our dedicated Technical Services Team carry out runs daily enabling you to receive results required in a timely manner.

For any other virology testing requests, please do get in touch to discuss how we can help.
