Test ID: G6PDC    
Glucose 6 Phosphate Dehydrogenase Enzyme Activity, Blood

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Evaluation of individuals with episodic or chronic Coombs-negative nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia


Rapid testing to assess glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) enzyme capacity prior to Rasburicase or other therapies that may cause hemolysis or methemoglobinemia in G6PD deficient patients


May aid in the creation of a comprehensive patient profile and can ensure appropriate patient monitoring for developing anemia
