ARUP Laboratories and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Form Partnership to Offer High-Resolution HLA Genotyping by Next Generation Sequencing

ARUP Laboratories announced that they will be offering high-resolution HLA genotyping by next generation sequencing (NGS) under an agreement with The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). HLA genotyping is used for identifying the best recipient/donor match combination prior to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). HLA genes are the most polymorphic gene family found in the entire human genome, with more than 10,000 different HLA alleles reported so far. Currently, the standard of care for HLA genotyping to select a donor for HSCT is to use a low/intermediate resolution SSO/SSP test first and then reflex the candidates to confirmatory Sanger Sequence Based Typing (SBT) to obtain higher resolution allele information to finalize the matched donor. Sanger SBT produces incomplete and ambiguous results by analyzing only sections of the HLA genes and failing to distinguish among different alleles due to difficulty with resolving cis/trans chromosomal positions of those alleles. NGS is able to overcome the limitations of Sanger SBT by performing large number of long clonal sequencing reactions, allowing reporting of complete and unambiguous HLA genotyping results.
