Hemoglobinopathies and β-Thalassemia: Investigating High-Res Mass Spectrometry

Early diagnosis of hemoglobin disorders and Thalassemias are become more important due to a high carrier frequency and ease of global migration. In a prospective study of over 5,000 samples, we investigated the use of High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HR/MS) as an improved tool for identification of hemoglobinopathes and β-Thalassemias in newborn screening. Our results show HR/MS is a suitable method for newborn screening. You can read the full details in Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine. Read here.
