More then 20 years have passed since PCR-SSP, applied to the HLA field first was introduced by Associate Professor Olle Olerup to the global market (ref. 1-2). The product line was the first commercially available SSP product and, as then, Olerup SSP® typing kits continues to lead the way in SSP typing.
Olerup SSP® kits are frequently updated. Every time a new lot is planned and produced, the update is based on the latest available allele database. This is one of the reasons that users continue to consider Olerup SSP® typing kits as setting the benchmark for SSP.
