OneLambda offers a flow based alloantibody detection system consisting
of beads coated with HLA peptides for MHC class I and II, including
single antigen beads.  These kits are expensive, as they are largely
used for clinical transplantation cross-matching.  See their web site:

Depending on your application, it is also possible to detect
donor-specific alloantibody using a panel of CD40L stimulated B cells of
known MHC specificities.  See our work:

Hope this helps

Dear All:

Does anyone has a good flow cytometric method for measuring HLA (class I
and II) antibodies?
