HbS is an inherited variant of haemoglobin that causes Sickle Cell Disease. The HbS variant is a mutation in the beta chain of the haemoglobin molecule causing the red blood cells to become sickle or curved in shape. This reduces the red blood cells ability to carry oxygen efficiently around the body often leading to anaemia.

Sickle cell disease is the most important haemoglobin disease and is classified as the 4th priority in global health care after cancer, HIV, and malaria according to the world health organisation (WHO).

SEBIA Capillarys 3 uses capillary electrophoresis to separate the different haemoglobin factions. It can detect haemoglobinopathies such as HbS in babies at birth using blood taken from the umbilical cord.
