CareDx European HLA Typing Service
CareDx has launched a research-use-only HLA typing service for customers in Europe out of its next-generation sequencing lab in Stockholm. The CareDx HLA typing service is powered by AlloSeq Tx17 and uses high-resolution hybrid-capture technology to yield a fast turnaround time with no long-range PCR inefficiencies. CareDx said that AlloSeq Tx17 provides over 50 percent more gene content than other commercial NGS solutions, including 11 classical HLA loci as well as HLA-E, -F, -G, -H, MICA, and MICB. A company spokesperson said that the service will be available to customers in the US later this year.
