This unique book is written by Barbara Bain, a leading haematologist with a reputation for her educational prowess in the field.

It provides a concise overview of the haemoglobinopathies and focuses on the selection, performance, and interpretation of relevant laboratory tests.

Editorial Reviews


“It provides a concise overview of the haemoglobinopathies and focuses on the selection, performance, and interpretation of relevant laboratory tests.”  (E-Pathology, 27 February 2014)

"As you would expect from Barabara Bain there is a wealth of superb microscopy photographs for peripheral smear, bone marrow and trephine slides. This new edition has been updated with 43 new pictures. A particularly valuable text for students preparing to sit MRCPAth or Advanced Practitioner examinations."
Medical Laboratory World

Book Description

Addressing the cause of most errors in the diagnosis of hemoglobinopathies, Bain (hematology, Imperial College School of Medicine) provides an overview of these conditions with a focus on the selection, performance, and interpretation of the results of tests that should be offered by all but the very specialist referral centers. She also discusses what specialists centers will do if more tests are required, with guidance on what the results will imply. Contains many b&w and color illustrations and charts. Annotation c.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone who interprets hemoglobins April 14, 2007
No question that if you regularly interpret hemoglobin electrophoresis, then you must have this book at your disposal. Dr. Bain is the Kathy Foucar of Britian and has created an excellent resource with lots of useful tables, diagrams and pictures. The latest edition is not much different than the last edition, so if you have the previous edition, no real need for this one. But if you don't have a good resource for hemoglobinopathies and need one, this is definitely the way to go.

3.0 out of 5 stars Packed with information, but not well organized January 8, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While this book seems to have just about any information you could possibly want regarding hemoglobinopathies, the information could be a little better organized; plus, the index is not very easy to navigate.
