(Limitations: All One Lambda software products are designed to assist personnel experienced in HLA analysis by suggesting typing results. However, any clinical or diagnostic results must be carefully reviewed by a person qualified in HLA typing to assure correctness. This software may be used to aid in suggesting results, but should not be used as the sole method for determining reportable results. This software is meant as a laboratory aid, not as a source of definitive results. The software design does not mitigate hazards associated with the software. The laboratory director or technologist trained in histocompatibility testing is required to review all data to detect any problems with the software.)
