The Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (H&I) Laboratory provides a complete range of diagnostic testing services used primarily in the field of clinical organ transplantation and, secondarily, for study of associations between certain diseases and several HLA alloantigens. The laboratory provides STAT coverage on a 24-hour basis for clinical consultation and for final placement of organs from deceased donors, including kidney, pancreas, heart, lung and liver transplants.

The H&I lab is fully accredited by the American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) as well as the Centers For Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) under CLIA guidelines.
