Histocompatibility Laboratory Member

A histocompatibility laboratory member is a member of the OPTN. A histocompatibility member is any histocompatibility laboratory that performs histocompatibility testing, including but not limited to, HLA typing, antibody screening, compatibility testing, or crossmatching, and serves at least one transplant hospital member or OPO. Histocompatibility laboratory members are either independent or hospital- based. (OPTN Bylaws Definitions, December 2020)
