Lab Services

HLA Lab 

Indiana Blood Center’s ASHI-accredited HLA laboratory provides testing necessary for solid organ transplant. In addition to supporting two renal and cardiac transplant teams in Indiana, we also provide the following services.

  • Provide HLA and solid phase red cell adherence (SPRCA) matched platelets to local hospitals.
  • Send HLA matched products anywhere throughout the U.S. for refractory, difficult-to-match patients, as needed.
  • Parathyroid tissue cryopreservation
  • TRALI screening for blood donors

Effective January 1, 2017, Indiana Blood Center’s HLA lab no longer performs relationship (paternity) testing.
