WHAT HAS CHANGED
The following changes were made to HLA Fusion™ Software since version 2.0 and its related Service Packs:
Enhancements

The system now has overlapped bead separation algorithm support for all LABType® HD products, using
existing RSSOH1C logic.

The system now has support for FJ correction to single-antigen Class II, similar to W632 for Class I.

Users can now select a default Home Page to start with when they log in to HLA Fusion.

The system now enables users to set or view the path for LABType HD conversion output. This path will be
used to store converted CSV files for LABType HD kits.

CSV files for LABType HD kits.

The system has improved Bw4/Bw6 coloring in LABScreen to distinguish the specificity.

The probes in the Reaction Table in LABType Analysis are now colored based on the exon region to better
distinguish the probes.

The system now uses a new Bead naming convention (Analyte).The system now includes a Luminex Device
field and a Software Version field on the import and batch summary screens and in the custom reports. These
fields appear only for LABType and LABScreen products.

Users can now reconfigure any HLA Fusion database to increase the maximum database size.

Users can now merge HLA Fusion audit log databases.

Sample ID.

The Haplo tab in LABType now groups according to the true haplotype organization.

LABScreen analysis now displays the match/mismatch information for Donor Specific Antibodies (DSAs).

has been confirmed by family study, the user can activate a "Homozygous Assignment Confirmed" notation
for reporting purposes in addition to the attachment of related records.

The Custom Antibody report now includes a graph that shows specificity (serological, at minimum) and bead
ID plotted against the normalized Mean Fluorescent Intensity (MFI) values.

Control (NC & PC) values are now displayed in the data table for each sample in the Antibody Tracking
module.

the sample names, each row belonging to a different sample, and the rest of the columns across from left to
right are the bead IDs, with the raw data associated with each sample.

The “%SA” field is now a part of the Field Chooser, so that users can remove it from their summary reports.

In the Epitope Analysis results in the LABScreen analysis and the corresponding reports, the Mean (raw) of
positives has been replaced with the Mean (normal) of positives.

then track Bw4/6 in the Ab Tracking module.

Users can now export LABType product information that resembles the temporary files that were used to
import product information in HLA Visual.

The Find Antigen function in LABScreen Mixed analysis now works similarly to its counterpart in LABScreen
PRA/SA analysis, where broad antigens can be searched and its split antigens are circled. For example, if a
broad antigen, A9, is searched, the split antigens, A23 and A24, are circled.

The system now has a Donor PRA function, similar to the one used in LABScreen analysis for Patient Ab
Tracking, where the percentage is calculated for both Class I and II of a chosen serum.

Titles on custom reports (such as Molecular Custom) are now limited to 50 characters.

Session ID and Sample ID search in modules such as Manage Data and Reporter now support Chinese
characters.



Micro SSP Analysis now ignores the first well (1H) when determining whether to analyze non-amp wells with
a positive and negative score.

The specificities in the Reaction Score section of the Custom Antibody report are now ordered the way UNOS
sorts the specificities, which is by locus (A, B, BW, DR, DQAB) and within each locus, sorted numerically. In
addition, within each reaction group, each specificity is listed only once as opposed to listing it for each bead.

The Combined Sample report in the Reporter module now has an option to display the Assigned Allele Pairs
in the Corrected Typing field instead of the Assigned Allele Codes field.

The system now provides clarification that LAT analysis configuration settings do not apply to LATM analysis.

The issues with database name that caused the auto schedule backup to throw exception has been fixed.

"Show matches with all testing" option include C locus test results has been addressed.

In some unique situation the system will allowed the user to associate a template name to multiple catalogs.
This has been changed so that users will not be allowed to do that.

The sorting of serological and/or allelic specificities under the final assignment field has been addressed.

The soring order now defaults back to system sort and does not persist from previous sample sort order for
the Antibody analysis.

In Custom SSP report setup, Nomenclature date and NMDP/Local code update now displays in the report.
LIMITATIONS AND RISK MITIGATION

HLA Fusion Software has a limitation when utilizing cross loci wells in the Micro SSP analysis
module. When viewing the software suggested assignment, be sure to verify any final assignments
when a cross loci well is part of the reaction pattern. Mitigation: Use manual analysis in these cases.
