dripOrder Assays and ship samplesdrip

Shipping: If you know the assays to order, or have shipped samples to us before, please click for shipping forms to the Red Blood Cell Lab. The pages will lead you to sample requirements and shipping forms for the different tests.

Planning for a new study: Planning a research study in the hemoglobinopathies with multiple patients, multiple time points and multiple tests can be challenging.
We can help you with the planning and the design of the study.

It is our mission to provide the most cost effective resource for clinical studies in the hemoglobinopathies.


As a starting point, please consider which assays you would like to do. A number of our assays can be used as clinical diagnostics as well as research tools. Other assays are for research purposes only.


Check the description of our routine assays and start planning with the table below.
Contact us and we will provide advise, consider tests that are not on the list but are available as well as help you to decide on the development of new assays required for the planned study. We will then provide you with a quote for planning purposes.

1. For infortmation on the services we provide, use the tables below to plan for Clinical Diagnostics or Research Laboratory Tests.

2. Decide which assays you need, the number of assays and timeframe of the study.

3. Please click here to download and complete the assay planning form

Alternatively, please contact us and we will assist you.

4. Print and fax or email as a PDF attachment to the blood lab as indicated on the PDF.

5. Make sure to provide your contact information on the PDF. We will contact you to discuss details and will subsequently send you a detailed quote.

If you request an assay that is not on the list, please indicate on the form and we will contact you to discuss options.
