Hemoglobinopathy Lab Test - More Information

The hemoglobinopathy test, also known as a hemoglobin variant test, hemoglobinopathy blood test, hemoglobinopathy lab test, and hemoglobin electrophoresis test, checks your hemoglobin types and variants.

Hemoglobinopathy is a condition in which the hemoglobin molecule is structurally abnormal. Caused by a genetic mutation, hemoglobinopathy can cause anemia and other conditions. The hemoglobinopathy test is sometimes used as a follow up test after the sickle cell test.

The hemoglobinopathy blood test uses electrophoresis to measure different types of hemoglobin based on the charge of the molecule. This hemoglobinopathy test will identify and measure the relative percentages of the hemoglobin types A, A2, C, F and S and also tests some markers found in the CBC test. As can be seen on the hemoglobinopathy sample report provided above, the test will report a normal phenotype if one is present.

To get a hemoglobinopathy test near you, order online and get your blood drawn at a Quest Diagnostics lab. Once the hemoglobinopathy lab report is ready, it can be downloaded. As shown on the sample hemoglobinopathy blood test lab results above, the percentages of different hemoglobin types will be reported as numerical values which can be compared against the reference ranges provided by the lab.

For general anemia screening, the anemia test panel is typically a better choice.
