Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. releases a new spectrophotometer that offers unique benefits for human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing laboratories dealing with donor tissue matching. The NanoDrop 1000 represents the growing trend of successful genome research tools finding their way to the clinical research setting. Specifically, the NanoDrop 1000 is utilized in the workflow as a replacement to time-consuming traditional spectrophotometers where efficiency and time-to-result are critical. The spectrophotometer is capable of carrying out full UV-Vis absorbance measurements with only 1 ul of undiluted sample, enabling HLA laboratories to significantly speed up analysis time. Also, it has been integrated into tissue typing workflows through a validation process as set by the HLA typing community.
