HLA Training School
At GenDx we believe in continuous education, complementing our products to make tissue typing better, faster and easier.
In order to improve skills and share tissue typing knowledge we offer comprehensive training in Sequencing-Based HLA Typing (HLA SBT) and smaller scale HLA SBT Teaching Sessions through our Training School.
We also host informative webinars on a regular basis that will help you understand how our reagents and software work.
In addition, custom training is available on-site or via the web. Please email email@example.com to find out more.

Chimerism Monitoring by qPCR
Learn how to accurately monitor chimerism after transplantation in a recipient using quantitative PCR (qPCR). Due to high sensitivity of the technique, relapse can be detected at an earlier stage enabling physicians to act accordingly.
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.
The course is ABHI accredited and participants receive 2.5 hours/0.375 CECs of continuing education.

Hands-on Training Courses
Get hands-on training with our reagents and software in less than 3 days
This 2.5 day intensive training course teaches participants SBT from the basics up to advanced levels. It includes hands-on lab work (from DNA amplification to sequencing) and data analysis. Moderate knowledge of HLA is recommended for course participants. The course is open to those interested in expanding their knowledge of high resolution HLA tissue typing.
- Hands-on experience with NGS-based HLA Typing
- Practical laboratory “wet” training
- Demonstrating multiple NGS platforms
- Training on data analysis with NGSengine®
- Send your own genomic DNA samples for typing
The course is ABHI accredited and participants receive 20 hours/3 CECs of continuing education.
