Transplant Centers Lab Testing
NJ Sharing Network’s Transplant Laboratory
Our transplant laboratory is a fully accredited “state of the art” facility performing histocompatibility testing of organ donors and recipients. The laboratory also plays a critical role in the pre and post-transplant evaluation, and successful transplantation of highly sensitized individuals who would be difficult to treat under general conditions. Maintained by a highly trained staff, the laboratory continues to play a key role in completing the Circle of Life. To date, the lab is credited with saving the lives of over 8,000 New Jersey residents.
