Test ID: WBSQR    
Beta-Globin Gene Sequencing, Blood

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Evaluates for the following in an algorithmic process for the HAEVP / Hemolytic Anemia Evaluation; HBELC / Hemoglobin Electrophoresis Cascade, Blood; MEVP / Methemoglobinemia Evaluation; REVE / Erythrocytosis Evaluation; THEVP / Thalassemia and Hemoglobinopathy Evaluation:

-Diagnosis of beta thalassemia intermedia or major

-Identification of a specific beta thalassemia mutation (ie, unusually severe beta-thalassemia trait)

-Evaluation of an abnormal hemoglobin electrophoresis identifying a rare beta globin variant

-Evaluation of chronic hemolytic anemia of unknown etiology

-Evaluation of hereditary erythrocytosis with left-shifted p50 oxygen dissociation results

-Preconception screening when there is a concern for a beta-hemoglobin disorder based on family history
