Box 8Typing kit locus "groups"

HLA typing kits are usually used to detect alleles in one or more loci. Within a typing kit, a particular locus and an optional pre-amplification define what is termed a "group". Thus, one typing kit can contain several groups, with each group either consisting of the same locus and a different pre-amplification (or no pre-amplification) or consisting of different loci (with or without pre-amplification).
