- Fast: immediately ready-to-use micro test plates
- Efficient: lean workflow
- Safe: proven microlymphocytotoxicity test (MLCT) with unambiguous results
Proven method for HLA typing
HISTO TRAY is the ideal, cost-effective kit for rapid exclusion of null alleles. The micro test trays are ready to use with pre-dropped antisera and controls for typing HLA-ABC and -B27. Thanks to ready-to-use typing trays (incl. rabbit complement), the MLCT is a simple diagnostic method.
The lean microlymphocytotoxicity test (MLCT)
The HISTO TRAY test trays are based on the microlymphocyte toxicity test (MLCT). In this test, anti-HLA sera react with corresponding, membrane bound antigens of human lymphocytes. The addition of rabbit complement leads to structural changes of the cell membrane, so that an indicator dye can penetrate the lymphocytes and tint them (positive reaction).
If an antigen-antibody reaction does not occur, the cell membrane remains intact. The cells are unable to absorb the dye (negative reaction). A simple, streamlined workflow that simply convinces.
- safe, reliable and proven test to exclude null alleles
- ready-to-use – microtest plates with pre-dropped anti-HLA sera (rabbit complement)
- cost-efficient thanks to rapid results
The HISTO TRAY HLA kits are convincing as a proven typing solution! Simple, safe handling, fast results thanks to ready-to-use trays.
