The Red Blood Cell (RBC) Special Studies Laboratory offers testing for hereditary causes of hemolytic anemia. Some of the enzyme studies are also useful in the diagnosis of red cell aplasia disorders and immunodeficiency syndromes in children. Most of these tests are offered as part of a diagnostic panel. Some are also offered individually.
