How much does it cost?

Please note – In addition to the price of tests, there is also a phlebotomy cost for the withdrawal and handling of your sample. This is a standard charge across all clinics. The cost of sample handling is £50, but this is discounted to £30 only if paid in advance. Please choose the pay later option to pay the full amount upon your arrival at the clinic or choose pay now in order to pay in advance and secure the discounted fee.

What can I learn from this test?

A hemoglobin electrophoresis test is a laboratory test that is used to identify and quantify the different types of hemoglobin in your blood. Hemoglobin is a protein found in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. There are several different types of hemoglobin, and this test is primarily used to diagnose and characterize various hemoglobinopathies, which are genetic disorders that affect the structure or production of hemoglobin.

What can I test?

Haemoglobin

Haemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells which carries oxygen around the body and gives the blood its red colour. This test measures the amount of haemoglobin in the blood and is a good measure of the blood's ability to carry oxygen around the body.

Haemocrit

HCT (haematocrit) measures the amount of space (volume) within the blood that is taken up by red blood cells.

Red Cell Count

Red Blood Cell (RBC) Count analyses the number of red blood cells in the blood. Red blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body, where it can be used to fuel energy processes such as movement and respiration. They also carry carbon dioxide produced from cells back to the lungs so that it can be exhaled.

Mean Corpuscular Volume

MCV (mean corpuscular volume) reflects the average size of your red blood cells. This is important to measure, as it can indicate how much oxygen your cells are likely to be transporting around the body.

Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin

MCH (mean corpuscular haemoglobin) measures the average amount of haemoglobin contained in one of your red blood cells.

Haemoglobin A0

Haemoglobin A2

Haemoglobin Phenotype
