As technologies evolve for HLA genotyping and antibody detection, so too is the modern transplant laboratory adopting new assays, protocols, and software to manage growing demand and improve patient care. This presentation will discuss advancements in several areas that may generate better data in more efficient ways, including improved workflow and performance in NGS assays, extended coverage in tests for donor-specific antibodies, and increased software integration for easier data management.
