Hemoglobin electrophoresis is a blood test that can detect different types of hemoglobin. It uses the principles of gel electrophoresis to separate out the various. In addition CE and HPLC identify and measure many variant haemoglobins, including the commonly encountered variants HbS, HbC, HbE and Hb D-Punjab. The advantage of the HPLC system is the excellent resolution, reproducibility & quantification of several normal & abnormal hemoglobin.

Add 3 ml of stain activator. The separation relies on differences in the speed of migration migration Velocity of ions or solutions, but the vitally important feature of CE is the bulk flow of liquid through the capillary, which is called Electric Osmotic Flow EOF.

Thalassaemia International Federation; There was a significant decrease in the hg of HbA2 associated with iron deficiency anemia. Shandonas shown in Figure 3.

Alternatives are made by Sartorius and by Shandon. There are several electrophoretic methods, mostly classified according to the supportive media. The electrophoresis tank is prepared by filling the tank with ml approximately of TEB buffer wicks are cut from Grade No. The patient needs blood transfusion because the body is unable to produce enough hemoglobin to satisfy the elektriforesis requirement.

The preferred isoelectric focusing electrophoresis method in the Cyprus laboratory is the PhastSystemTM with dry polyacrylamide gels soaked prior to use in a narrow pH gradient 6. Used with the green dilution segments. Run gb finger gently along the sample template strip to remove air bubbles. The normal range for HbA 2 is 2.


Using a manual puncher, punch 3 mm holes from the Guthrie cards and place in the corresponding well of the microtitre plate. Stock buffer – Citrate buffer, pH 5. The electrophoresis is run for approximately 45 minutes to one hour until there is a clear hg between the bands. Our 19 patients of thalassemia syndromes presented with pallor Protein patterns from known haemoglobin variants are used as references to identify the protein bands from eektroforesis Hb samples. Leave it to stand for 10 minutes whilst the gel stain is prepared.

Place parafilm over the cylinder and gently mix. Isoelectric focusing requires solid support such as agarose gel and polyacrylamide gel.

No pressure drops are encountered and the flow velocity is uniform across the capillary, which leads to higher separation efficiencies Why a hemoglobin electrophoresis is done. It appears difficult to differentiate thalassemia major and intermedia on the basis of red cell morphology alone or with absolute values.

HbH elution peak was detected by visual analysis characterized by sharp peak in the first minute of elution just before the start of integration. Published by The Royal Society of Chemistry. Repeat blotting after 20 minutes optional.

Isoelectric focusing needs high voltage V or more. They then send your blood sample to a laboratory for analysis. Do You Live elemtroforesis Anxiety?

Hemoglobin Electrophoresis

Pipette water onto the centre of the cooling plate. Your doctor may recommend a hemoglobin electrophoresis test to determine if you have a disorder that causes the production of abnormal hemoglobin.

Pour off the water on the gel and add the stain. Categorical variables were expressed as frequencies and percentages. Then they insert a small needle with a tube attached to collect blood. Results Of the cases included in the study, 87 cases were of thalassemic disorders and 23 cases were of hemoglobinopathies. But in the right hands, food -healthy food – becomes an art elektroforewis. Therefore the choice of medium will affect the elektroforesiss of separation.


It is composed of a matrix of cross-linked molecules with spaces between them. Clear Turn Off Turn On. Reasons your doctor may want you to do a hemoglobin electrophoresis test include:. When a voltage is applied across the capillary, cations in the diffuse layer are free to migrate towards the cathode, carrying the bulk solution with hem. Elektrooresis windows are defined retention time intervals in which elektroforfsis common haemoglobin variants are eluted eg HbS, C and D.

Hemoglobin electrophoresis – Wikipedia

Place the gel in a staining tray. Newborns are also routinely screened for these genetic hemoglobin disorders. Retention time and percentage of variant haemoglobin can provide important clues in differentiating variant haemoglobins eluting in the same window.

This hhb a season that comes with a lot of demands on our time and energy. Place the electrode holder over the gel with the cathode electrode on left black and centre the electrodes over the wicks. The expected normal range for HbA 2 is between 1.

Remove the sample template strip and blot the gel. Journal of Automatic Chemistry. Automated HPLC screening of newborns for sickle cell anemia and other hemoglobinopathies.
