Osmotic Fragility Test In Kolkata

Osmotic Fragility Test In Kolkata

Starts from 350*

The osmotic fragility test in Kolkata is one of the most reliable tests to check the health of the red blood cells that are produced in the body. The test, as the name suggests, is done to understand if there is a likelihood that the person’s red blood cells will undergo breakdowns that are not due to a natural cause. Certain hereditary conditions call for the osmotic fragility test.

About Osmotic Fragility Test

Why is the Osmotic Fragility Test done?

The red blood cells help the body function properly. They transport oxygen to cells, collect the waste materials and pass them on to the excretory systems, and help maintain the overall well-being of the body.

When these red blood cells are fragile and break down easily (a condition known as hemolysis), they cause several disorders. Often genetic disorders like Spherocytosis or Thalassemia are detected via the process of osmotic fragility test. While both the conditions differ, they have a common factor—both give rise to hemolytic anemia.

The test is usually prescribed when the patient shows the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Chest pains
  • Weakness
  • Irregular breathing
  • Skin becoming pale or taking up a yellowish tinge

People suffering from anemia too are advised to go for the osmotic fragility test to understand the exact causal effect for the patient to become anemic. This further helps the doctors to prescribe further tests for proper detection.

What does the Osmotic Fragility Test measure?

The osmotic fragility test subjects the blood sample to stress by adding the samples to solutions with different salinity levels. At low salinity, normal cells remain intact while fragile cells rupture. Once this is confirmed, further tests to identify if the person is suffering from thalassemia or spherocytosis is requested.

Potential risks/side effects associated with the Osmotic Fragility Test

The test requires collection of blood from the patient. While the sample collection process can be painless, there are certain side effects that an already anemic person might feel. These include:

  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue

Often resting can help alleviate the symptoms.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQs

What is Spherocytosis?

Spherocytosis or hereditary spherocytosis is a hereditary condition that causes the red blood cells to become fragile. This condition is due to the mutation of at least five genes and the symptoms include anemia, enlarged spleen, and jaundice. The underlying cause behind the fragility of the red blood cells is that the mutations caused by spherocytosis make the RBC membrane rigid, which decreases its flexibility, causing it to break apart easily. Affected newborns show signs of severe anemia from birth.

 

What is thalassemia?

Thalassemia is another hereditary condition where the DNA that forms the red blood cells is affected. This condition is due to the body not producing enough hemoglobin to help the formation of red blood cells, thereby causing low oxygen saturation in the blood. People with thalassemia show signs of anemia, along with breathing difficulties. While mild thalassemia is manageable, the severe form would require constant monitoring.

Is fasting required?

Since the samples are subjected to saline solutions, there is no need to fast prior to the testing. But, if the patient is under any medication, then he/she should consult the doctor to know if the medicines will affect the results.

THINGS TO KNOW AFTER GETTING TESTED

Interpreting the Osmotic Fragility Test results

With osmotic fragility, the test results can either be negative or positive. If the lab result comes back as negative, the patient is not suffering from any conditions that are related to anemia. A positive result means that the cells are not strong and flexible enough, and further tests are required to ensure the exact cause is suggested.

For a person showing signs of anemia, if the results are normal for osmotic fragility, then other conditions, like deficiencies, should be tested for.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
