An Inherited Autosomal Recessive Blood Disorder
Thalassemia is a common hereditary blood disease caused by a genetic defect of either mutation or deletion on the globin genes. It is resulted as an imbalance production of globin chains for making hemoglobin.
Thalassemia is categorized into 2 major forms: Alpha (α) and Beta (β) thalassemia.
α-thalassemia is due to the deficiency of the α globin chains encoded by 2 genes on chromosome 16.
β-thalassemia is due to the deficiency of β globin chains encoded by a single gene on chromosome 11.
Hybribio Thalassemia Gene Diagnostic Kit provides an ‘All-In-One’ platform for screening of BOTH alpha and beta thalassemia with detailed information of diagnosis in terms of heterozygosity and homozygosity for all positive results.
