Eligible for 0.15 ACHI CECs (1 contact hour)

In this webinar, the speakers showcase where allele-specific DSA could easily be missed without running the LABScreen™ Single Antigen ExPlex panel. They also discuss cases where some “pan-reactive” antibodies expressing less common HLA alleles could be questioned or even dismissed as potentially false positives if high-resolution typing and expanded antibody testing are not performed.

Topics:

  • Enabling more transplants, especially for higher-risk patients
  • Reducing time spent resolving difficult or unusual results
  • Increasing confidence in decision making
  • Contributing to better clinical outcomes for patients
