The Histocompatibility Laboratory is located on the third floor of the Old Medical School Building.

All blood drawn for HLA typing should be drawn and sent within 24 hours of the initial step of the test.  A Tissue Typing consult form must accompany the blood specimens with a brief clinical diagnosis of the patient.

This laboratory is open 24 hours a day and on weekends only for urgent tests.  Such tests to be done after regular hours will have to be approved by the supervisor or through the Laboratory Director.  Please note that blood for tests listed should be kept at room temperature.
