The cost of HLA typing DNA test in India varies from ₹10,000 to ₹30,000 depending on various conditions, like no. of alleles screened, quality of data high resolution or low resolution and the technology used.
What is HLA typing?
HLA or human leukocyte antigens which are present on the cell membrane with key role of protecting the cell by initiation of the immune response.
The test is used for the organ transplant patient, if the antigen of patient and donor doesn’t match then antibody will attack the organ and reject it. The antibody will presumes organ as harmful or foreign and will attack the organ. The Organ transplant patients requires HLA typing to check the compatibility of organ with donor.
HLA typing is also used to establish paternity (to determine if a particular person is the father of a child) and to study disease association; it is also used in forensic medicine. Forensic medicine is the relation and application of scientific techniques to resolve legal matters.
Different HLA typing methodology
Current methods for HLA typing define HLA alleles and allele groups using DNA-based methods. Different DNA-based molecular techniques are used depending on the clinical application.
Solid organ transplantation requires a low- to intermediate-level typing resolution to determine an individual’s HLA antigens.
Bone marrow transplantation requires a high-resolution typing to determine the HLA alleles.
SSP -Sequence Specific Primer
SSP-Sequence Specific Primer is used for low to intermediate HLA typing of HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, -DRB3-5, -DQA, -DQB and -DP loci. This technology uses the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify the locus of interest. DNA probes of known sequence are allowed to bind with complementary DNA sequences on the PCR product. The combination of bound and unbound probes allows for a snapshot of DNA sequences throughout the PCR product. Testing is performed with a multiplex bead assay on the Illumina Mi seq platform.
SBT – Sequenced Based Typing
SBT- Sequence Based Typing is used for high-resolution identification of alleles of HLA-A, -B, -C, – DRB1, -DQB1 and -DPB1. This technology uses PCR to amplify the locus of interest. Sanger sequencing is then used to determine the nucleotide sequence of the PCR product.
