The Collaborative Transplant Study provides high quality serological and molecular HLA-typing reagents and kits for antibody testing to study participants at self-cost. These reagents have been available for many years and we believe that they are an important contributing factor to the excellent correlation of immunological parameters with graft survival found in the CTS data. The CTS website contains the current versions of kit manuals as well as updated interpretation schemes and tables. The manuals are available in PDF-format. To display PDF image format, Adobe´s freely available Acrobat Plug-in or Acrobat Reader Software is required.
Each product can be identified by its 3-digit ordering code (product number).
The CTS-PCR-SSP reagents have received CE-Certificate in accordance with the requirements of the In Vitro Diagnostic Directive 98/79/EC. The Quality Management System is EN ISO 9001 and EN ISO 13485 certified.
