Genotyping of immune response genes and characterisation of antibodies to self and non-selfDiscuss your project
KIR genetics is complex: different KIR genes may or may not be present, giving rise to genetic diversity. Like HLA, polymorphic variants of the KIR genes also exist; different alleles may exhibit functional differences.
We perform PCR-RSSO presence/absence testing for the following Killer Cell Immunoglobulin-Like Receptor (KIR) genes:
* Including non-expressed null allelesContact Us
We use Luminex xMAP® technology to detect antibodies (presence/absence testing) and are able to further characterise antigen specificity as required.
Our assays are able to detect and characterise human IgG antibodies directed against:
Whether you require antibody detection and specification in the sera of research subjects or the supernatant of cell lines, our team are happy to provide advice when planning your study or interpreting your results.Contact Us
