My laboratory has been using the LinkSēq technology for a couple of years now.  My technologists are very happy that we converted to real-time PCR.  The ease of the use of LinkSēq has allowed our laboratory to focus additional effort on other aspects of the transplantation process and helps us with the demands of our overall program.

Martin Oaks, PhDAurora Health Care

We have been very pleased with your LinkSēq kits.  The procedure is faster, more reliable, and less hands-on.  Repeat testing and turnaround time has dropped dramatically, and FTE usage dropped as well.  Your test has really improved our overall workflow.  Please keep up the good work.

Michael D. Gautreaux, PhD, D.ABHIDirector, HLA/Immunogenetics Laboratory

HLA typing using RT-PCR is quickly replacing gel-based SSP typing.  I can’t imagine sticking with traditional SSP methodology after using RT-PCR.  Our staff love it, and our customers appreciate the shorter turn around time!

SupervisorHLA Laboratory

After seeing an in-house demonstration of the LinkSēq kits, I elected to convert all my HLA testing to RT-PCR.  We made the switch with complete validation in 2 months. I have been pleased beyond
my expectations. The procedure is easy, less hands-on and therefore safer, faster and the software is remarkably user friendly. Repeat testing has dropped to less than 1% of the time, turnaround time and FTE usage dropped dramatically.

So we are accomplishing more, faster and at a lower cost than ever before.
