HLA typing

The software provides analysis of HLA typing by NGS on several platforms, including ones from Illumina, Thermo Fisher, and PacBio.

The company said revenues from its non-invasive heart transplant rejection test AlloMap rose about 16 percent year over year.

Linkage is now part of Thermo Fisher's transplant diagnostics business, One Lambda. Linkage's flagship product line is its real-time PCR technology, LinkSeq.

In Science this week: a protective gene in C. elegans, and combining EHRs with genetic data to ID HLA-associated variants

An international team of researchers has mapped new associations between HLA mutations and specific diseases, and made their data freely accessible.

The company said revenues for the quarter and full-year 2016 included sales of Olerup HLA typing products, which CareDx got through its acquisition of Allenex.

GenDx is planning to get CE marking for an Ion Torrent-based HLA typing workflow, to add to the firm's set of NGS solutions for transplant diagnostics.

CareDx's CareDx Pty subsidiary said it will pay up to $735,000 to Conexio as a percentage of revenues from products acquired in the deal. 

Under the terms of the agreement, GenDx can resell Illumina's instruments, reagents, and maintenance contracts for the field of HLA sequencing.
