Main Focuses

One of the central areas of work of the Institute is transplantation diagnostics, both in the field of stem cell transplantation and in the transplantation of solid organs as a laboratory affiliated to EUROTRANSPLANT. This activity is integrated into a framework of national and international organizations and laws.

Stem cell transplantation:

  • High-resolution HLA typing of donors and recipients
  • Diagnosis for donor preparation (IDM, blood groups)
  • Monitoring of mixed allogeneic chimerism

Solid organ transplantation:

  • HLA typing of transplant recipients and living donors
  • Detection and specification of alloantibodies prior to transplantation
  • Monitoring of possible immunological rejections
  • Consultation with the transplant centres Kaiserslautern and Homburg/Saar
