Abnormal Hb Studies (Hb Electrophoresis)
haemoglobin is the protein p IgMent in the RBCs which is responsible for transporting oxygen to the tissues and organs. Genetic mutations can cause the body to produce abnormalities in the haemoglobin and hence, the abnormal haemoglobin can cause too little oxygen to reach your tissues and organs. A haemoglobin electrophoresis test is a blood test used to measure and identify the various kinds of haemoglobin in the bloodstream.
