Researchers have developed an accurate, low–cost potential test for diagnosing people with sickle cell anemia. The test, based on a lateral flow strip, is designed for use in areas where SCA treatment exists but testing methods are inaccessible, such as sub-Saharan Africa, where SCA is prominent.
While researchers were optimistic about the results, they recommended further testing to ensure the test’s reliability in warm climates and in the field.
The study, “Towards a point-of-care strip test to diagnose sickle cell anemia,” was published in PLOS One.
