2016-05-31Olerup and Qiagen have recently agreed upon a new Joint Improvement Program of the QIAxcel® Advanced System for Olerup SSP® data generation and automatic data transferal into the Olerup version of Helmberg-SCORE™.
Olerup SSP® HLA Typing Kits are qualitative in vitro diagnostic kits for the DNA typing of HLA Class I and HLA Class II alleles. The products are used by trained professionals in medical settings for the purpose of determining HLA phenotype. The source material tested is DNA.
Our ambition is, to distinguish all confirmed HLA alleles up to 4-digit resolution for the HLA-A, HLA-B,HLA-C and DRB1 loci, and all known alleles for other HLA loci.
Disease associated alleles: There are autoimmune conditions with a strong association with HLAs, such as: Ankylosing Spondylitis associated to HLA B27; Narcolepsy a neurological disease closely associated with the HLA-DQB1*0602 and over 95% of patients with Coeliac Disease have some isoform of HLA-DQ2 or DQ8.
Drug hypersensitivity: Abacavir is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor used in conjunction with other antiretroviral agents in the treatment of HIV infection. Hypersensitivity to abacavir is immunologically mediated, driven by conventional MHC-I antigen presentation and activation of HLA-B*5701.
