SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - December 09, 2013) -
The HLA Laboratory at the City of Hope National Medical Center collaborated on early validation studies with Linkage and the resulting work was selected for presentation at ASHI's annual meeting. The laboratory concluded that Linkage's method was easy to perform and train personnel, and data analysis was simple and quick.
Linkage's homogeneous test can be run and analyzed on standard real-time PCR instrumentation without needing further analytical techniques required by other tests. Linkage's test identifies all the major KIR genes including specific variants in 2DL1, 3DL1, and others.
"The LinkSēq system provides a tremendous advance for molecular KIR typing," said Zachary Antovich, CEO of Linkage Biosciences. "We are excited by this latest product launch and look forward to continuing our efforts to enable and accelerate critical immunology research in transplantation and infectious disease."
