Sample Collection Options for this Haemoglobin Electrophoresis for Sickle Cell Disease and Thalassaemia Test.
This profile is a robust collection of tests used to help diagnose Sickle Cell Disease or Sickle Cell Trait, and variants of Thlassaemia, and is available postally.
This test will reveal the presence of inherited altered Haemoglobin types (haemoglobinopathy). Haemoglobin is the pigment in the red blood cell that carries oxygen to the tissues – if altered in any way symptoms may occur. The tests include a Full Blood Count and Haemoglobin Phenotype, as well as classification of any Haemoglobin variants present. Sickle Solubility is run as a reflex test if evidence of Sickle Cell disease is found. This test is perfect for those seeking to know if they are affected by Sickle Cell disease and trait, or Thalassaemia.

Utterly patient, kind and helpful, kit arrived next day, as did my results. 5 stars well-deserved.UK
Great service and product. The turn around is brilliant (mostly - there was a glitch during the early part of the Covid pandemic, but that seems to be resolved now). Tests are recognised by the medical profession so I am able to use the results to get the treatment I need without further tests.UK
I had various questions which they answered via email/webchat and the timing of getting a kit, sending it back and getting the results was good.UK
