The Rogosin Institute Immunogenetics and Transplantation Laboratory (IGT) is one of the largest solid-organ immunogenetics laboratories in the Northeast. IGT provides specialized diagnostic services for patients waiting for organ transplants and post-transplant monitoring. The IGT laboratory, established in 1985 under the leadership of Dr. Manikkam Suthanthiran and Dr. Marilena Fotino, carries the tradition of being one of the first laboratories to provide testing for transplants.
Today, under the direction of Vijay K. Sharma, PhD and Dr. Manikkam Suthanthiran, the laboratory continues to provide the highest quality testing using state of the art technology. A highly professional staff is dedicated to the service of clinicians and their patients. Over the years, the laboratory has grown exponentially in terms of the number of transplant centers it serves and the number of transplant candidates it supports. Currently, Rogosin IGT serves four major transplant centers in the New York/Metropolitan area. It provides laboratory support for kidney, pancreas, heart, liver, lung, and small intestine transplants as well as testing for transfusion support and human stem cell/bone marrow transplantation. Since 1985, over 10,000 organs have been allocated with the services provided by the IGT laboratory.We, the staff at IGT pride ourselves about the quality of our work and the strength of our commitment to actively contribute improving the quality of life for each of our patients.
