Sickle Cell Disease (Hemoglobin S, C and E) Genotyping
Find out if you are at risk
- Sickle cell disease is a red blood cell disorder caused by abnormal hemoglobin
- Defects in the HBB gene result in the production of abnormal hemoglobin
- It is the most common inherited blood disorder in the US, affecting 90,000 to 100,000 Americans
- Simple mouth swab DNA test with results in 1 – 2 weeks
About Sickle Cell Disease
The HBB gene encodes the β-globin chain of hemoglobin, a protein found in red blood cells. Mutations in the this gene result in the production of abnormal hemoglobin and can lead to sickle cell disorders.
