Posted September 29, 2010

The College of American Pathologists is soliciting feedback from laboratories using the Histocompatibility checklist (HSC). Please review the Harmonization of Histocompatibility Typing Terms Statement. The Statement consists of proposed terminology, definitions of resolution levels, format for reporting HLA assignments, and match reporting for transplantation. The intent is for these definitions to become the de facto standard for stem cell typing.
