Color Atlas of Hemoglobin Disorders draws its material from proficiency testing surveys conducted by the CAP Hematology and Clinical Microscopy Resource Committee. The cases are arranged in increasing order of complexity and represent a comprehensive array of hemoglobin disorders.

The 45 “wet” cases are presented as a series of learning exercises that include:

  • The case history and the alkaline and acid electrophoresis gels
  • Identification of the case and survey participant performance
  • Selected peripheral blood smears
  • Discussion of the case, complete with references

The 24 “dry lab” challenges—those cases in which a sufficient volume of blood could not be obtained or a specimen could not be obtained—consist of a series of diagrams that illustrate the electrophoretic findings of a case.

The text also includes:

  • Examples of various disorders as illustrated by high-performance liquid chromatography and isoelectric focusing
  • “A Closer Look At…” sections that provide detailed discussion of alpha-thalassemia, beta-thalassemia, and Hb E-associated disorders
  • Contents (PDF, 40 KB)
    Sample pages (PDF, 1.23 MB)

    Softcover; 332 pages; 400+ photomicrographs, figures, and tables; 2003

Developed by the CAP Hematology and Clinical Microscopy Resource Committee, this comprehensive guide draws its material from CAP hemoglobinopathy surveys. Presented as a series of learning exercises, the cases are arranged in increasing order of complexity and represent a comprehensive array of hemoglobin disorders. Includes 45 “wet” cases that include alkaline and acid electrophoresis gels, identification of the case, and survey participant performance, and 24 “dry lab” challenges with diagrams illustrating the electrophoretic findings of a case. Also includes examples of disorders as illustrated by HPLC and IEF. Contains more than 400 figures, tables, and photomicrographs.
