Histocompatibility laboratory (HLA)

The Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory is the reference centre for the hospitals of the Catalan Health Institute (ICS, from its Catalan initials) in HLA typing and in the evaluation of compatibility between donor and recipient in the context of Haematopoietic Progenitor Transplantation (HPT).

Our laboratory is the Reference Centre for the Spanish Bone Marrow Donor Registry (REDMO, from its Spanish initials) in Catalonia and for the Umbilical Cord Bank of Barcelona because it carries out all the HLA studies required for the registration of new donors and for the registration and verification of umbilical cord units, respectively.

The laboratory carries out healthcare, teaching and research tasks.
