Among these specialized tests are assays for autoantibodies, flow cytometric based tests for phenotypes of white blood cells, cytotoxicity assays for NK function and assays for intracellular cytokines. In addition, molecular based assays for mutations of genes involved in coagulation abnormalities, HLA allele assays and tests for STDs are performed.

The Laboratory provides services for physicians in over 450 clinics in the United States and 30 countries.
