Early in 2016, Immucor invested in Sirona Genomics, a spinoff of the Stanford Genome Technology Center (SGTC), to acquire the market-leading MIA FORA NGS FLEX HLA typing solution as well as a team of R&D experts in the HLA field. With an exclusive focus on NGS HLA typing, this pioneering team created a groundbreaking solution for transplant teams and patients.
Along with this investment, Immucor acquired the proprietary Sirona Genomics database archive of the sequences identified during the seven-year MIA FORA development process.
- 15,000 samples run to build and verify the Sirona Genomics database and augment the international IMGT public database.
- 400+ samples validated with 99%+ accuracy
- Innovative MIA FORA software developed to reduce the time required for data analysis
Immucor provides all reagents needed for PCR amplification, reagent prep and sequencing in the MIA FORA kits. The MIA FORA kits also contain the adapter plate and magnetic beads. Kits are available for the 5, 6, 9 and 11 gene configurations.
