CareDx to facilitate HLA labs moving to Real Time PCR

Published: 2018-06-14

To be able to facilitate for HLA laboratories that wish to implement Real Time PCR and Olerup QTYPE into their workflow CareDx has signed a distribution agreement with Thermo Fisher to distribute their QuantStudio® instruments to labs setting up the Olerup QTYPE® system. To further support the labs CareDx has also agreed with Swiss based company Integra to distribute their liquid handling system VIAFLO. 

Olerup QTYPE 11 is a real time PCR product that types the 11 HLA locis in one hour. This is the fastest possible way to achieve an HLA typing. To be able to perform the typing in such a short time is especially important when performing organ transplantation where the time between organ retrieval and transplantation is critical for the graft survival. For CareDx to be able to provide not only the reagents but also the equipment needed to perform the typing provides an advantage for both the laboratory and hospital administration.
