Molecular testing for alpha thalassaemia must be preceded by appropriate consultations with a haematologist, and laboratory haematology tests, including FBC and film, Hb EPG and iron studies.
Request in patients with anaemia of unknown cause, especially if low MCV, MCH and of South East Asian, African, Middle Eastern or Mediterranean origin, or in patients with a family history of alpha-thalassaemia.
Alpha-thalassaemia is characterised by defects in the alpha globin chain of the haemoglobin molecule that decrease haemoglobin production with resulting anaemia.
