G6PD, Quantitative, Blood and Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) Blood Test


* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.


Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD), Quantitative, Blood and Red Blood Cell Count (RBC).

G6PD is an enzyme present in red blood cells that prevents the RBC from breaking down. Deficiency causes haemolysis due to trigger by medications, parasitic infections or unexplained haemolytic jaundice.

G6PD hemolysis is associated with formation of Heinz bodies in peripheral red blood cells.

It is the older erythrocytes that are most G6PD-deficient in affected individuals. These cells are first eliminated in a hemolytic crisis. The younger cells and reticulocytes contain more G6PD. For these reasons, after a hemolytic crisis, when only younger erythrocytes and reticulocytes are present, the G6PD values may be spuriously normal.

Recommended For:
Unexplained haemolysis/jaundice, in malaria prior to starting treatment.

Special Notes:
No special preparation is necessary prior to blood sample collection.

Tests Included:
Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD), Quantitative, Blood and Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) – TC – 500
