Automate your HLA typing workflow with the INTEGRA ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot

INTEGRA Biosciences offers a range of high quality liquid handling solutions designed to improve the reproducibility and throughput of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing workflows. The ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot, combined with the VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette, provides exceptional flexibility to any laboratory carrying out HLA typing, whether they’re using serological or sequence-based methods.

HLA typing is compulsory for all donors and recipients prior to organ transplant, as a mismatch can result in organ rejection. Human errors or inaccurate liquid handling during this process could lead to serious consequences if the HLA types of patients and donors are not identified correctly, and automating the workflow can minimize these risks. Using the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot means that low volumes are pipetted with higher accuracy and precision compared to a manual workflow, which is particularly important in situations where samples can be small and precious. By combining the ASSIST PLUS with the VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette, users are not restricted by labware type, providing the option to switch between different processes and applications as the lab’s workflow demands. Users can even work across a wide volume range, simply by switching between VOYAGER pipettes. This makes the ASSIST PLUS a versatile tool for diagnostics labs and transfusion and transplant centers wishing to enhance their HLA typing capabilities.
