Currently, there are no rapid POC tests for sickle cell disease. Diagnosis is made using complex central lab equipment (HPLC and IEF) which have been incompatible for low-resource regions due to bulk size, lack of mobility, cost, difficulties in recruiting trained personnel and unreliable electricity supply. These factors have limited current diagnostic capabilities in low-resource regions, especially in remote and rural areas.
Sickle SCAN® is a simple but accurate rapid test that will help overcome the existing diagnostic gap in low-resource regions where SCD is responsible for 9% of all under-five infant mortality. The test can also be used preventatively for genetic counseling to reduce the incidence of sickle cell births.
