Sebia Educational Luncheon Workshop

Friday, May 13th - From 12:00 to 13:30

Room: Yellow 2

"SEBIA electrophoresis for Hemoglobin and VWF multimers
Better, faster, stronger"

Workshop Agenda

SEBIA keeps innovating in the hematology field bringing solutions to laboratories for the screening and management of hematological disorders. By attending this educational workshop, the audience will learn why Capillary Electrophoresis is the best-in-class technique for first intention hemoglobinopathy testing and how the diagnosis of the von Willebrand disease can be simplified thanks to a new electrophoresis application for the analysis of the multimers.

MODERATOR: Marc VASSE, Foch Hospital, Suresnes, France

Advantages of Capillary Electrophoresis for hemoglobinopathies’ diagnosis: valuable feedback from years of routine use

    • University of Padova, Padova, Italy


Mariela MARINOVA will explain why the laboratory has chosen Capillary Electrophoresis as first-line technique for the screening and the diagnosis of hemoglobinopathies and thalassemias. Based on several years of experience and routine use, she will demonstrate how this breakthrough technology, thanks to better analytical performances and ergonomics, has improved the diagnosis of these diseases and has brought high increased medical value for the patients.

Revolutionizing the VWF multimer analysis: within-day results with the Sebia Hydragel 5 von Willebrand multimer test

    • Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield Haemophilia and Thrombosis centre, Sheffield, UK


Annette BOWYER will describe preliminary results of a comparative evaluation of the Sebia Hydragel 5 von Willebrand multimer (VWF) assay compared to an in-house agarose gel electrophoresis method for VWF multimer analysis. The Sebia’s assay clearly reduces time for obtaining results (within-day results) compared to current home-brew techniques (4 days in average). In addition, this study will determine whether the Hydragel densitometric analysis will improve the interpretation of VWF multimer results and the correlation between the two techniques for VWD typing.
