More then 20 years have passed since PCR-SSP, applied to the HLA field first was introduced by Associate Professor Olle Olerup to the global market (ref. 1-2). The product line was the first commercially available SSP product and, as then, Olerup SSP® typing kits continues to lead the way in SSP typing.
Olerup SSP® kits are frequently updated. Every time a new lot is planned and produced, the update is based on the latest available allele database. This is one of the reasons that users continue to consider Olerup SSP® typing kits as setting the benchmark for SSP.

Olerup SSP AB is the company behind the Olerup SSP® product line and a world leader in the research and development of kits for genomic HLA typing. The products are used prior to transplantations to match donors with recipients. Better matching reduces the risk of complications following transplantation. HLA typing is a standard procedure in bone marrow transplantation (hematopoietic stem cell transplantation) and organ transplantation (kidney, lung, heart, and others). The company is situated in Stockholm, Sweden and works through a well established network. The company´s own sales organisation is present in West Chester, PA, USA and Vienna, Austria. Through a network of distributors the company is represented in over 40 countries. To learn more about the Olerup sales organization, please visit www.olerup.com.
