In the department of Immunology two laboratories are currently active as a diagnostic laboratory in the field of Medical Immunology. In addition, the Eurotransplant Reference Laboratory is situated in the department.

The HLA diagnostics laboratory headed by dr. Dave Roelen is specialized in histocompatibility and immunogenetics: HLA typing and HLA antibody screening for both solid organ transplantation as well as stem cell transplantation purposes are being performed routinely.

The Eurotransplant Reference Laboratory is headed by dr. Sebastiaan Heidt and serves as the link between Eurotransplant and the tissue typing laboratories affiliated to transplantation centres collaborating within the framework of Eurotransplant.

The Immune Monitoring laboratory, which is headed by Prof. dr. Jacques J.M. van Dongen, is both a research and diagnostics laboratory where immunology and immunemonitoring of infectious diseases, immune therapies, cancer treatment, immunodeficiencies and autoimmune diseases are highly interlinked and supportive to the Top Referral Care programs of the LUMC.
