In this combined webinar, Prof. Ellen van der Schoot will present the SNP array approach as is codeveloped by Sanquin, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and will show how this assay is being used for blood group typing.

At GenDx we are currently developing NGS assays for whole gene sequencing of minor blood groups. Amongst other blood groups, we now have prototype typing strategies for Kell, Lewis, Duffy and Gerbich. In this webinar we will give an update on the R&D developments regarding blood group sequencing and will showcase many new alleles we have identified using the long-read sequencing approach of the PacBio Sequel IIe.
