Monotype HLA™

Typing single HLA loci for disease associations and drug sensitivity?

Monotype HLA is a suite of Assay and Software combination products for single-locus HLA typing.

  • The assay leverages the power of the Holotype HLA workflow, providing high throughput and high resolution genotyping to facilitate disease association research, population genetics studies and drug sensitivity testing.

  • The analysis of high resolution HLA data is supported by HLA Twin, the most accurate genotyping software for the processing of NGS data.

Product Highlights

  • Identical protocol for integration with Holotype HLA to maximize flow cell usage
  • Amplify only the loci you need for optimal flow cell usage
  • Pre-sample indexing up to 576 samples per run ***
  • Simple workflow and technician-friendly protocol
  • Automated protocol for pre/post PCR
  • Whole gene amplification
  • Optimized size-selection of fragmented amplicon libraries to help resolve phase and reduce ambiguity
  • Indexed adaptors (avoid bias from 2nd PCR step)
  • Multiple safe stopping points
  • Fully phased whole gene consensus squences
  • Customizable kit configuration
  • Flexible sequencing strategy to support pooling of different libraries
  • Kit splitting and flexibility
  • Elimination of error-prone pipetting steps


All timings are for 192 samples, Monotype HLA v3.0
*     Timings are based on the Biomek 4000 by Beckman Coulter
**   On a MiSeq 300-cycle Micro flow cell
*** Lead time for >192 barcodes varies. Consult your local sales representative for an accurate estimated delivery
