My name is Eric – I‘m 46 and saw a doctor for fatigue at 17. I lived fairly normally if a little subdued by lack of endurance at times. But then, 12 years ago I fell into a nosedive after moving to South Florida.

This facility is one of the foremost HLA (Human Leucocyte Antigen) Labs in India for pre & post transplant testing for both solid organ & bone marrow transplant. We are the recognized lab for HLA tests for all cadaver donations in Karnataka.

The following tests are offered:

 

CDC Cross MatchDSA Cross MatchHLA TypingPanel Reactive Antibody TestingSingle Antigen Test

Key Features:

1. In the field of Transplant Immunology since 1996
2. NABH accredited
3. Minimal service charges being a not-for-profit entity
4. Luminex based testing – i.e. automated, higher clinical efficacy results
5. Quick reporting: Results between 24 and 72 hours, as against the usual benchmark of 1 week.
6. Review by experts in Transplant Immunology: Each test is reviewed by the Expert Panel on Transplant Immunology to ensure 100% coverage and quality
7. Discussions with the transplant team and clinicians whenever required to ensure personalized care
8. Our mission is to constantly innovate through research and development to expand testing capabilities and ensure awareness to all stakeholders.

The test details are as below:

No:TEST TYPEMETHODOLOGYCLINICAL USESPECIMEN REQUIRED 
1CDC Cross MatchSerologyThe CDC Cross Match is done to detect presence of pre-formed anti-donor HLA antibodies in the serum of potential recipients. The AHG CDC cross match detects these antibodies with greater sensitivity than the routine.Patient serum & donor’s ACD blood sample 20-30 ml
2Luminex DSA Cross MatchLuminex based cross match using donor lysateTo detect the presence of antibodies directed against the HLA antigens of the donor & specific HLA IgG antibodies against Class I and/or Class II antigens.It is ideal for pre- and post-transplant testing.Patient serum (5 ml) & donor ACD (20-30 ml) blood sample
3HLA typing AB DR/SSO/SSP PCR, Intermediate resolution HLA typingTo identify the Human Leukocyte antigens/ HLA alleles present on donor/ patient which is required for Bone Marrow as well as solid Organ transplantEDTA blood sample 5 ml
4PRA/ Panel reactive Antibody testingLuminex bead based ImmunoassayClass I and II ID panels provide antibody identification and panel-reactive antibody (PRA) informationPatient serum (5 ml)
5Single Antigen testLuminex bead based ImmunoassayImmunoassays used to qualitatively detect the specificity of HLA IgG antibodies Class I & II for better selection of donor for allosensitized patient specially patients waiting for deceased donor transplant.Patient serum (5 ml)
