Transplantation Immunology

The Transplantation Immunology Division (TID) at University of Cincinnati’s Hoxworth Blood Center is a state-of-the-art histocompatibility and immunogenetics testing laboratory. 

Dr. Caroline Alquist, director of Hoxworth’s Transplantation Immunology Division, works with clincial lab scientist Ryanne Ross to review patient labels prior to automated cell separation.

The TID provides HLA testing and consult services for:

  • solid-organ transplant programs
  • hematopoietic stem cell transplant programs
  • transfusion medicine services (platelet refractoriness workups)
  • primary and specialist care (disease association and drug sensitivity testing)
  • clinical trial and basic research 

The Hoxworth TID is accredited by the American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI).

A list of our services is available via the requisition form linked below or as listed at the bottom of this page. Additional tests may also be available to further characterize antibodies. Please contact us below for additional information.
