The University awarded a contract for serologic and molecular tissue typing reagents to One Lambda, Inc., Canoga Park, CA for an estimated $100,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the vendor is the only company that makes monoclonal DR trays. This is important because it is more specific and provides a clearer, more accurate test. Approximately 10% of the tests would be uninterpretable and have to be repeated if the alternative, polyclonal antibodies, were used. One Lambda is the only company that offers supplemental A and B locus trays, which is the most accurate method used to solve a specific targeted problem with the A and B locus. This is important because this problem occurs approximately 15% of the time and if supplemental A and B locus trays were not used to resolve this problem, a complete Class 1 Typing would have to be performed, which is less accurate. One Lambda is the only company that offers a single test tray to perform B-27 typing. This is important because results have better quality, longer reactions an longer in-date times. It also uses fewer trays and reagents are needed. Alternate methods require an additional 1 to 2 tests per tray increasing reagent use by 2 to 3 times. These supplies will be used in the Tissue Typing Lab for performing complex compatibility tests on patients who require solid organ or bone marrow/stem cell transplants.
