LABType Assays

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

rSSO DNA typing by bead-based multiplexing


Thermo Scientific LABType products are reverse SSO DNA typing assays that provide HLA A, B, C, DRB1, DRB3, DRB4, DRB5, DQA1, DQB1, DPA1, and DPB1 typing. The multiplex analysis reduces labor, reagents, reaction-to-reaction inconsistencies, and assay time associated with a multi-well format assay making it a cost effective solution.


LABType assays utilize Luminex Bead technology, eliminating the handling of strips or membranes, colorimetric reactions, or visual analysis of colored bands or dots.


The LABType XR and CWD assays, are designed for use with the LABScan3D system, to 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.


LABType SSO features

  • Reduces labor and processing time with "all-in-one" reaction
  • Allows resolution of ambiguities without an additional assay
  • Automated data acquisition using flow analysis
  • Software-aided data analysis and HLA allele assignment
  • Post-hybridization stability for batch processing
  • Excellent 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 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.


LABType XR and CWD features

  • 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
