We are bringing the Scheme 4A2 and 6 distribution date (originally 17th December 2019) forward 1 week to 10th December 2019 to allow labs to receive the samples earlier to help prevent issues with testing the samples during potential staff shortages around the Festive Season.
To confirm, the results entry deadline will remain as 7th January 2020 for both schemes to allow plenty of time to submit results. However if you foresee any issues with this change or may require an extension to the deadline, please let us know as soon as possible so they can be considered.
As this distribution will contain samples for 4A2 (HLA typing to 2nd or 3rd field) and 6 (HLA Antibody Detection, if you are registered for both schemes, you may receive duplicate notifications of this change.
If you have any queries, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
