Hemoglobin is the protein inside red blood cells that is responsible for transporting oxygen throughout your circulatory system to your tissues and organs. If your hemoglobin is of a healthy, “normal” type, it will transport and release oxygen with maximum efficiency. If it is abnormal in some way, it may cause too little oxygen may reach your tissues and organs.
Hemoglobin A is the most common type of haemoglobin found in healthy children and adults. A hemoglobin electrophoresis test is a blood test used to measure and identify the different types of hemoglobin in your bloodstream. The test is a Rapid, Accurate & Reproducible tool for early detection and management of various Haemoglobin disorders.
The test may also be ordered for one of the following reasons: Evaluation of unexplained hemolytic anemia, Microcytic anemia unrelated to iron deficiency, chronic disease, or lead toxicity, a peripheral smear with abnormal red cell features (eg, target cells or sickle cells), family history of hemoglobinopathy, positive neonatal screen results, positive results on sickle cell or solubility test.
Detection of Abnormal Hb, keeping in mind the high prevalence of Hb A2 in India, will help in prevention of more serious hemoglobinopathies including Beta Thalassemia major.
