A modified sandwich ELISA for accurate measurement of HbF in α-thalassemia carriers containing Hb Bart's and Hb Portland 1.

Hemoglobin F (HbF) in blood lysate can be accurately measured by various methods, including immunoassay. In this study, we have produced polyclonal antibody (pAb) against HbF and established a modified sandwich-type ELISA for HbF quantification in blood lysates. The modified sandwich ELISA utilized anti-γ-globin monoclonal antibody clones Thal N/B as the capture antibody (Ab) coated on solid-phase, fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-labeled pAb as the detecting Ab, and HPR-labeled anti-FITC Ab as the signal...
