The human immune system is a complex, vital network. It protects our body not only from harmful substances, but also from pathogens, pathological and degenerative cell changes, such as cancer cells. The immune system includes various organs, cell types, and molecules. A functioning immune system is essential for our health – and immune system dysfunctions can lead to diseases.
The products in our product portfolio can deepen the understanding of the immune system and its proactive actors during its fight against diseases. Using next-generation sequencing, we can sequence immune cells to gain valuable insights into an individual’s immune system. For example, an essential component of the human immune system is the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system. The HLA system comprises a group of genes that encode molecules on the surface of leukocytes. Numerous diseases are associated with specific
