Sebia – high-resolution haemoglobin screening method

Last updated: 30th April, 2024


Haemoglobinopathies, such as sickle cell disease and alpha/beta thalassemia major, are prevalent genetic disorders that affect the protein part of haemoglobin (Hb). With a growing global disease burden, accurate and rapid diagnosis of these conditions is crucial for optimal management and genetic counseling. ​

Sebia*, a leading provider of diagnostic solutions, offers a revolutionary high-resolution haemoglobin screening method that is transforming the field of genetic testing. ​

Sebia’s Hb screening methods key features

  • Fully automated haemoglobin testing
    Load-and-go workflow improves efficiency and reduces hands-on-time.
  • High-resolution
    High-resolution separation indicates patient variant status with color coded profiles for quick result validation.
  • Accurate and precise
    Approved for quantitation of common Hb variants, Hb F and Hb A2 for thalassemia screening.
  • On-board identification assistance
    Simplified presumptive identification using zones with the built-in Hb variant library and x-migration positions.
  • Easy-to-use
    Whole-blood, capped tubes with automated on-board sample mixing eliminates.

The Capillary Electrophoresis technology provides a fully automated workflow, reducing hands-on time and improving efficiency in laboratories. ​The high-resolution separation allows for quick and accurate identification of patient variant status, with color-coded profiles for easy result validation. ​

The system is approved for quantitation of common Hb variants, Hb F, and Hb A2, enabling effective thalassemia screening. ​ Additionally, the built-in Hb variant library and on-board identification assistance simplify presumptive identification. ​
