Test Catalog

Test ID: WGSQR    
Gamma-Globin Full Gene Sequencing, Varies

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:

-Evaluation for suspected gamma variants or nondeletional hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin (HPFH)


Assess for unstable gamma chain variants (there are occasionally newborns who are jaundiced at birth, often requiring phototherapy, in which all other tests for causes of hemolysis are unrevealing)
