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.

Testing Results for Organ and Bone Marrow Transplantation Only

This laboratory provides testing services for organ and bone marrow transplantation only. If you are looking for testing services not related to transplant please contact the outpatient lab at 801-581-2654. Thank you.
