The ease of being able to test for HgbS with Streck Sickledex kits is awesome.
Application Area:Hemoglobin S testing of donor units
"The Sickledex kits allows me and my co-workers to provide sickle negative units to our hospitals. One of the hospitals that we serve has a sickle clinic and the patients rely on the blood that we supply. One of the other ways that we utilize Sickledex is the evaluation of units of blood that do not filter through the leukoreduction filter. HgbS positive units do not filter well. I love being able to use this Streck product!"
SICKLEDEX is the best-selling Hemoglobin S solubility testing kit for use in the clinical laboratory and requires only 20 µL of patient or control sample. It is an easy-to-use kit with unique packaging that offers longer stability and provides cost savings to the lab. SICKLEDEX kits are conveniently packaged with two separate squeeze bottles for easy dispensing and elimination of waste.
SICKLEDEX is available in 100-test, 50-test and 12-test kit configurations. The SICKLEDEX 12-test kit includes all items necessary to perform a sickle cell screening test with 12 plastic test tubes, 12 convenient one-piece plastic micropipettes to collect and dispense the patient sample, and a test tube rack to allow immediate interpretation of results.
Sickle-Chex is a positive and negative whole blood control available for use with sickle cell screening tests and hemoglobin electrophoresis. The control does not require reconstitution, which allows it to be used like a patient sample. Sickle-Chex features squeeze dropper vials for easy dispensing.
