Anemia - Suspect Hemolytic - for screening

Hemolytic anemia is a group of blood disorders characterized by the premature destruction of red blood cells (RBCs) in the body. When this occurs, the body is unable to replace the RBCs at the same rate as their destruction, leading to anemia. The Anemia - Suspect Hemolytic screening panel consists of a set of specific diagnostic tests, namely the Coombs Test – Direct & Indirect, G6PD Quantitative, Haptoglobin, Hemogram, LDH-Serum, Liver Function Tests (LFT), Osmotic Fragility Test, and Urine - Hemosiderin. These tests collectively assess the functioning of the red blood cells, liver, and general blood parameters.


  • Test NameAnemia - Suspect Hemolytic - for screening [Coombs Test – Direct & Indirect, G6PD Quantitative, Haptoglobin, Hemogram (CBC + Retic + PS), LDH-Serum, Liver Function Tests (LFT), Osmotic Fragility Test, Urine - Hemosiderin]
  • Sample TypeBlood, Urine
  • Preparations RequiredNo special preparation is needed for these tests.
  • Report TimeAll tests will be reported same day except for Haptoglobi n – next day & Osmotic fragility - 3 Days

Hemolytic anemia can be either inherited (such as in conditions like sickle cell anemia or thalassemia) or acquired (from certain infections, autoimmune diseases, or exposure to certain drugs). Regardless of the type, the common factor is the destruction of red blood cells, leading to symptoms like fatigue, paleness, shortness of breath, and jaundice. Therefore, this diagnostic panel is a crucial tool in the identification and management of hemolytic anemia.

Frequently Asked Questions

This comprehensive panel aims to diagnose and assess the severity of hemolytic anemia. The tests evaluate various factors, including red blood cell function, blood hemoglobin levels, the presence of antibodies against red blood cells, and the liver's health.

  • The Complete Blood Count (CBC) measures the count and size of different cells in your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
  • The Reticulocyte Count measures the count of young red blood cells, indicating the rate of production and release by the bone marrow.
  • Ferritin is a protein that stores iron. Its level in blood indicates the total iron storage in the body.
  • Folate (Folic Acid) test measures the amount of this type of Vitamin B in your blood, which is crucial for red blood cell development.
  • Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme found throughout the body. Its levels can increase due to cell damage or destruction, which could be a consequence of anemia.
  • Liver Function Tests (LFT) evaluate how well your liver is working. Some liver conditions can affect the size of your red blood cells.
  • The Vitamin B12 test measures the amount of this vitamin in your blood. Like folate, B12 is important for red blood cell development and a deficiency can lead to macrocytic anemia.

These tests should be done if you have symptoms of hemolytic anemia, such as fatigue, paleness, jaundice, dark-colored urine, or an elevated heart rate. They may also be ordered if your doctor suspects hemolytic anemia based on other test results.

The frequency of these tests largely depends on the severity and type of hemolytic anemia and your overall health status. Your doctor will provide you with appropriate guidance.

The blood tests in this panel carry minimal risk, similar to any blood-drawing procedure. This may include slight pain, bruising or bleeding at the needle site, or feeling light-headed.

No fasting is required for these tests. However, you should follow any specific instructions given by your healthcare professional.

Medications, alcohol consumption, diet, and overall health status can affect these tests. Certain health conditions, like liver disease, inflammation, and cancer, can also influence the results. It's important to share your complete medical history with your doctor.

If your test results are abnormal, it would be best to consult a hematologist, who specializes in diagnosing and managing blood disorders.

A healthcare professional will collect a blood sample from a vein, usually in your arm, and a urine sample. These samples will then be sent to a lab for analysis.

This Anemia - Suspect Hemolytic screening panel is a comprehensive set of tests to identify and manage hemolytic anemia effectively. Abnormal results can guide your healthcare professional in creating an appropriate treatment plan for you. Regular monitoring and follow-up are vital for managing your symptoms and improving your health.
