Different reports have addressed the precision of the retention times obtained with stored normal samples (17); specimens containing Hb S, Hb C, and Hb E (9); and liquid controls (14).
Similarly, Hb C and Hb E-Saskatoon exhibited identical mobilities on the Helena Hemoglobin Electrophoresis System (data not shown) and very similar mobilities on alkaline SPIFE (Fig.
Hb C, Hb D-Punjab, Hb E, Hb G-Philadelphia, Hb Hope, Hb Lepore, Hb O-Arab, and Hb S) that in combination with Hb S lead to a clinically significant sickling disorder can be quickly and accurately accomplished by use of such algorithms without the need for confirmatory testing.
Hb C and Hb O-Arab variants can be diagnosed using the Bio-Rad Variant II high performance liquid chromatography system without further confirmatory tests.
2 Plus method were modestly lower than the results obtained with the Diamat for samples with Hb C trait at Hb Al, concentrations of both 6% and 9% and minimally lower for samples with Hb S trait.
When samples containing Hb C trait were analyzed with the DCA 2000 method, the mean result was substantially higher than that obtained with the Diamat at 9% Hb [A.
The package insert for the Unimate method indicates that specimens containing Hb C and Hb S variants may yield higher than expected Hb [A.
There are several possible explanations for the higher values seen with the immunoassay methods compared with the HPLC methods for samples containing Hb C trait.
Hb S and Hb C differ from Hb A by a single amino acid substitution at the sixth position of the [beta] chain (Glu to Val or Glu to Lys, respectively).
The presence of a hemoglobin variant such as Hb S or Hb C may adversely impact the accuracy of a gHb result.
