Genome Diagnostics NGSengine

Genome Diagnostics has released a new version of its NGSengine human leukocyte antigen typing software. The updated NGSengine is now capable of exporting HLA typing results of individual samples directly to the Predicted Indirectly Recognizable HLA Epitopes (PIRCHE) matching-services website, thanks to a recent partnership between Netherlands-based GenDx and German firm PIRCHE. This, the company said, will give laboratories the ability to predict indirectly recognizable HLA epitopes for either hematopoietic stem cells or solid organs.
