Chimerism Monitoring
Learn how to accurately monitor chimerism in a recipient after transplantation using quantitative PCR (qPCR).

Due to high sensitivity of the technique, relapse can be detected at an earlier stage.

The program includes the principles of chimerism monitoring using qPCR and training on data analysis
utilising a software program especially developed as a laboratory and data management assistant.

Who should attend?
This teaching session is ideal for all those already working with Chimerism Monitoring already, novices and experts alike.
