Near perfect ASHI accreditation for HLA lab



A little over a week ago, inspectors from the American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) assessed the Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Laboratory at LMP for our 2016-2018 accreditation.

After an extensive day of inspection and review it was determined that the HLA Lab would be successfully accredited with a near perfect conformance rate.

The lab was assessed against more than 600 standards, and received only one minor non-conformance.

Alice van Oosterwijk, HLA supervisor says the results speak to the work done in the lab on a daily basis, adding, “everybody in HLA participates in the process, and the accreditation is a true group effort .”

The ASHI accreditation is a mandatory requirement for LMP’s involvement in UHN bone marrow transplants. For more information on ASHI visit:


Congratulations and well done to everybody involved in the accreditation!
