Affymetrix has exclusively licensed HLA*IMP and will be providing tools incorporating this technology for HLA typing from its genotyping array data in the near future. Prior to the introduction of Affymetrix products that will incorporate improved performance versions of HLA*IMP, this web-service HLA typing is being offered for free as a courtesy to non-profit organizations. Commercial entities interested in using HLA*IMP should contact Affymetrix.
Generally speaking, dense and accurate SNP genotyping data from the xMHC region will enable you to use HLA*IMP on your data. The program works best for samples of European ancestry, but we are working on improving performance for other ethnicities.
