Fast and Easy Detection of HbS/C
Lamp Human Hemoglobin S&C mutation kit (rs334 & rs33930165)
An in vitro diagnostic test that allows the detection and genotyping of hemoglobin S&C mutations (A20T,G19A) of the human Sickle-cell gene, referred to as HbS and HbC mutations, from human whole blood and dry blood spot.
Sickle-cell disease (SCD), also known as sickle-cell anaemia (SCA) and drepanocytosis, is a hereditary blood disorder, characterized by an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying haemoglobin molecule in red blood cells. This leads to a propensity for the cells to assume an abnormal, rigid, sickile-like shape under certain circumstances. Sickle-cell disease is associated with a number of acute and chronic health problems, such as severe infections, attacks of severe pain (“sickle-cell crisis”), and stroke, and there is an increased risk of death.
