This is a specialised collection of over 400 reference cell lines, originating from laboratories all over the world, to be used in the investigation of the Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) system. The collection was expanded in 1996 with cell lines from the 12th International Histocompatibility Workshop (IHW) being added. Cell lines from the 13th IHW collection have also been added, along with a number of recently banked lines that were originally part of the 10th IHW collection.
Both serology and DNA typing data is available for the HLA Class I and II antigens together with information on non-HLA genes within the HLA region. Both cell lines and nucleic acids are available from stock, however, the 12th IHW Committee has specified that only extracted nucleic acids may be supplied to commercial organisations.
