Transplant immunology - Histocompatibility Laboratory of Catalonia

The Transplant Immunology Section corresponds to the Histocompatibility Laboratory of Catalonia, a reference center for immunological studies in the setting of organ transplantation in Catalonia. We maintain a permanently on-duty team to perform the immunological determinations needed to characterize organ donors and recipients in Catalonia. We provide high-resolution HLA typing to hematopoietic stem cell transplant teams and carry out HLA-disease association studies. The Histocompatibility Laboratory of Catalonia is accredited by the European Federation for Immunogenetics.
