Starting from NGSengine version 2.20, the software reports the Bw4/6 status of HLA-B alleles (based on the ALLAN tool*) in the overview, genotype ranking, TARR export, and the PDF report.
We are happy to announce that HistoTrac now accepts the tarr file as input and thus labs are able to transfer the Bw4/6 assignments directly into NGSengine. In addition, making use of the conclusive typing feature is now compatible with the import as well as the transfer of NMDP codes, if there are ambiguous typings.
Contact HistoTrac today to have your module updated so you can make use of this feature.
