When a patient is in need of a stem cell transplant, our labs will sequence their HLA genes, along with those of potentially suitable donors in order to find the best possible match.
Our dedicated team of over 60 staff members and automated laboratory equipment process and sequence DNA samples every day. These vast amounts of data are then analysed by our bioinformatics team and the new donors are added to our register.
The Labs team also offer various commercial sequencing services for scientific and medical research. This valuable source of funding is then used by Anthony Nolan to help save and improve the lives of more people with blood cancer and blood disorders.
