Very reliable; always works as indicated.

"Very easy to use and reliable product."
Sickle-Chex is a sickle cell control that monitors the presence of Hemoglobin S in solubility tests. The whole blood control does not require reconstitution, which allows it to be used in the same manner as a patient sample. Sickle-Chex is packaged in 2.5 mL squeeze dropper vials for accurate sample dispensing, eliminating the need for pipetting. Sickle-Chex is compatible with hemoglobin electrophoresis and the following sickle cell screening kits: Streck SICKLEDEX, Siemens Dade Sickle-Sol Test and Pacific Hemostasis SickleScreen Sickling Hemoglobin Screening Kit.
Streck SICKLEDEX is a qualitative solubility test kit used to detect the presence of sickling hemoglobins in human blood or sickle cell control material in 6 minutes.
