User Group Meeting – North America

This meeting will focus on HLA Typing by Next Generation Sequencing. We will provide current users with a platform for sharing knowledge, experiences, and ideas.
The program will include a heavy emphasis on advanced data analysis using NGSengine; test the limits by sharing your own challenging cases! Additionally, we ask for each participating center to share a scientific presentation or case study with the aim of igniting discussions among our experts and your peers.

Interested to immerse yourself in all aspects of HLA Typing by NGS? Contact our education team via and find out if there are still seats left!
