Identifying Abnormal Hemoglobin

With the powerful 21T ICR magnet, researchers can characterize hemoglobin faster and more accurately, providing doctors a new way to personalize medicine.

"Hb AC" denotes heterozygous β-chains: one normal, and one with a single mutation of glutamic acid to lysine at amino acid sequence position 6.
