Adapting Laboratory Diagnostics to a Changing Landscape

ASHI 2021 Symposium

Recorded at: Our ASHI 2021 Symposium: Adapting Laboratory Diagnostics to a Changing Landscape

 

How Can HLA genotyping and antibody detection be combined for broader applications, including virtual crossmatching, to support changes to the kidney allocation system?

As technologies evolve for these techonologies, so too is the modern transplant laboratory adopting new assays, protocols, and software to manage growing demand and improve patient care. Dr. Ahmed Mostafa discusses advancements in several areas that may generate better data in more efficient ways, including improved workflow and performance in NGS assays, extended coverage in tests for donor specific antibodies, and increased software integration for easier data management.
