Bio-Rad Medical Diagnostics

Bio-Rad Medical Diagnostics Bio-Rad has over 30 years of experience in HLA diagnostics. The company started its activity by introducing serological plates used for HLA typing and antibodies diagnostics. During the development, Bio-Rad has expanded its offer by HLA typing tests performed with molecular method and diagnostic tests for HLA antibodies with ELISA method. Bio-Rad offers HLA typing tests with serological method (Lymphotype) and with use of molecular biology techniques (SSP and ELPHA) as well as kits for typing anti-HLA antibodies with serological method (Lymphoscreen) or on the basis of ELISA technique (AbScreen/AbIdent).
