VARIANT™ nbs Ensures Thorough Analysis for Hemoglobin Disorders

With the VARIANT nbs Newborn Hemoglobin System, you get complete analysis for your newborn testing program. The VARIANT nbs provides key benefits crucial for ensuring a thorough analysis for hemoglobin disorders:

  • Detects most clinically significant hemoglobin disorders
  • Detects the carrier status for abnormal hemoglobins
  • Detects many double heterozygote conditions

With the VARIANT nbs, you get the total picture the first time, allowing each baby to quickly receive the appropriate follow-up and care.

Example 1. Chromatogram showing a double heterozygote with peaks presenting in both the Hb S and Hb C windows.

Example 2. Chromatogram showing a Hb E carrier with peaks presenting in both the Hb A and Hb E windows.

The VARIANT™nbs is the established worldwide standard in automated newborn screening for sickle cell disease and other hemoglobin disorders. It features fully automated analysis and advanced result reporting for maximum efficiency. Using dried blood spot specimens, the VARIANTnbs identifies the most clinically significant hemoglobin variants, including hemoglobins F, S, A, C, D and E, as well as the carrier status for abnormal hemoglobin variants and many double-heterozygote conditions. The VARIANT™nbs provides the total hemoglobin picture.

The VARIANT™nbs is specifically designed for high-capacity screening and walk-away automation, reducing labor requirements and human error. Load up to three systems per workstation and up to 1,128 samples per run. Smart reports with optional pattern rules simplify data review while providing objective, accurate results. A flexible worklist import function eliminates file incompatibility issues. Reviewing and managing results is simple with electronic chromatogram storage and retrieval.
