Haemopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

The Transplantation Laboratory provides Histocompatibility & Immunogenetics (H&I) support for the haemopoietic stem cell transplantation programmes at Central Manchester Foundation Trust (both Manchester Royal Infirmary and the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital) and other regional trusts.  The laboratory utilises state of the art molecular HLA typing technologies for patients and their potential donors who may need a stem cell or bone marrow transplant. The laboratory is one of the leading laboratories in the country in the application of chimaerism monitoring using short tandem repeats post stem cell transplantation. The laboratory provides additional KIR typing and interpretation of results for haploidentical stem cell transplants.

The laboratory offers a rapid and professional Graft Information and Advisory Service (GIAS) to undertake donor selection. This service is delivered by highly qualified and experienced Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered staff and is led by an FRCPath qualified H&I Consultant Clinical Scientists.
