  • If more than one test is ordered in the same category, collect no more than the maximum tube or sample volume indicated above. 
  • If two or more test categories are ordered, add the number of tubes together.

Important

Because of limited stability, samples should be collected Monday through Thursday avoiding holidays. Samples collected on a Friday, must be delivered to one of the three drop off locations (UCSF Clinical Lab, UCSF ACC Draw, and Mission Bay M2339) by 12:00 noon.  

Fee Schedule 

The ITL is approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a Free-standing Histocompatibility Laboratory (FSHL). This approval allows the ITL to perform testing for any transplant program in the United States, with uniform test charges for UCSF and non-UCSF clients. In addition, CMS determines the reimbursement rate for ITL tests and services based on its annual cost report and must charge institutions rather than individuals. The ITL testing fees are available to the public at the CMS website.
