Hemoglobin S, Screen, Blood
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Hemoglobin S reduced by dithionite is insoluble in concentrated inorganic buffers, and thus, the solution is so turbid that newsprint cannot be read through a tube containing the hemolysate and reagents.(Fairbanks VF, Klee GG: Biochemical aspects of hematology. In Tietz Textbook of Clinical Chemistry. Third edition. Edited by CA Burtis, ER Ashwood, Philadelphia, WB Saunders Company, 1999, pp 1678-1679; Fairbanks VF: Laboratory methods and case studies. In Hemoglobinopathies and Thalassemias. Edited by BC Decker, New York, Thieme-Stratton Inc, 1980, pp 105-107)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
