HLA Typing


Reverse SSO typing by multiplex flow analysis for low and high-throughput labs

Revolutionary rSSO DNA Typing by Bead-Based Multiplexing

LABType products are reverse SSO DNA typing assays that provide superior resolution for HLA A, B, C, DRB1, DRB3, DRB4, DRB5, DQA1, DQB1, DPA1, and DPB1 HLA typing. The multiplex analysis dramatically reduces labor, reagents, reaction-to-reaction inconsistencies, and assay time associated with a multi-well format assay making it a cost effective solution. No more handling of strips or membranes, colormetric reactions, nor visual analysis of colored bands or dots.

The newly added LABType XR and CWD assays, exclusively designed for use with the LABScan3D™ system, allow multiplexing of up to 500 bead regions allowing for a broader combination of detection probes for a single sample.


With our LABType SSO kits, you get superior resolution and a cost-effective solution for HLA A, B, C DRB1, DRB3, 4, 5, and DQA1,DQB1, DPA1,DPB1 HLA typing. Our cost effective kits do not require handling of strips or membranes, colormetric reactions, nor visual analysis of colored bands or dots.

  • Dramatically reduces labor and processing time with "all-in-one" reaction
  • Allows resolution of ambiguities without additional assay
  • Automated data acquisition using flow analysis
  • Software-aided data analysis and HLA allele assignment
  • Post-hybridization stability for batch processing
  • Ideal solution for both low volume and high throughput laboratories

LABType XR and CWD  

LABType XR and CWD assays are built on the 500 bead regions available exclusively for use with the LABScan3D system. Extended exon coverage for these assays and the ability to multiplex up to 500 bead regions allows for higher resolution.

The CWD assays are designed to resolve alleles as defined by the CWD catalog and the XR assays are designed for laboratories interested in increased resolution beyond the CWD assay.

  • 500 bead multiplexing
  • Locus and Exon Coverage:
    • A locus: Exons 2-5
    • B locus: Exons 2-5
    • C locus: Exons 2-7
    • DRB1 locus: Exon 2
