The Immunogenetics Laboratory at Donor Network of Arizona (DNA) provides histocompatibility testing services that locate matches for deceased and living donors’ selfless gifts.
These testing and screening services determine whether a donor’s tissue and blood type match those of a patient on the national organ transplant waiting list. Careful matching reduces the risk of a recipient’s body rejecting the donated organ.
Equipped with a state-of-the-art facility and a team of experienced and dedicated staff, the Immunogenetics Laboratory plays a vital role in the organ donation process by matching a donor’s generous gift to a recipient waiting for renewed life.
Testing services performed by the Immunogenetics Laboratory include blood typing, human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing, flow cytometry crossmatching and antibody evaluation.
The Immunogenetics Laboratory is accredited by the American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics.
