Sickle Cell Disease (Hemoglobin S, C and E) Genotyping

Find out if you are at risk

  1. Sickle cell disease is a red blood cell disorder caused by abnormal hemoglobin
  2. Defects in the HBB gene result in the production of abnormal hemoglobin
  3. It is the most common inherited blood disorder in the US, affecting 90,000 to 100,000 Americans
  4. Simple mouth swab DNA test with results in 1 – 2 weeks
