EMDIS message: TYP_RES

Name TYP_RES
Description Result of typing

With this message type typing results requested by a specific TYP_REQ message are transmitted. The results in the HLA fields have to correspond to the requested typing (field TYP_REQ.RESOLUT). If this is not the case the TYP_RES message can be rejected with a MSG_DEN. A TYP_RES message is issued ONLY when ALL requested typing events have been completed. After a TYP_RES message, a DONOR_CB with the updated donor data is mandatory to ensure up-to-date master data. Antigens respective alleles of a locus have to be transmitted pairwise, even if only one value has been changed.

There is no generally applicable time limit (e.g. pre-invoice) which prevents corrections of TYP_RES to be sent. The recipient has to apply his own rules for handling ’late’ TYP_RES messages. An updated DONOR_CB has to be sent in any case. Finally, WMDA guidelines for time limits shall be applied (TC Minutes MP2007/8).

The Reference Code used in TYP_RES MUST match the Reference Code provided in the associated TYP_REQ message received.

The HLA special code ”NEW” for new alleles is only valid for results containing HLA values (TYP_RES or SMP_RES). The subsequent DONOR_CB message reports the original typing of the donor. For example:

TYP_RES.D_DRB11 = ”11:01”
TYP_RES.D_DRB12 = ”NEW” 
DONOR_CB.D_DRB11 = ”old value” (if any)
DONOR_CB.D_DRB12 = ”old value” (if any)

The EMDIS semantics for the WMDA approved additional codes is defined as follows:

Message  UUUU  NEW  XXXX      NNNN
TYP_RES  N     Y    DRB3/4/5  DRB3/4/5
