LIFECODES® KIR Genotyping

Identify KIR genotypes with an easy-to-use assay.

Identify KIR genotypes with an easy-to-use assay.

Improve your laboratory’s operations while also providing trusted results with our quality products.

The LIFECODES KIR Typing Kits utilize SSO methodology and Luminex® xMAP® technology to identify KIR alleles present in a PCR-amplified sample.​​

There are 14 KIR genes and two pseudogenes located in the leukocyte receptor complex (LRC) on chromosome 19q13.4. Human NK cells express various combinations of these 16 KIR genes with two common haplotypes: Group A, which has more inhibitory receptors and Group B, which has more activating receptors.

The fact that Immucor representatives are former transplant technologists adds one more layer of support for us. I appreciate Immucor's commitment to comprehensive customer support, from assay and software development to technical and educational support.
