For initial diagnosis of PNH, Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria Panel, RBC and WBC (ARUP test code 2005006) is available. This panel analyzes both RBCs and WBCs.
For delineation of RBC populations Types II and III when the PNH clone is 1 percent or greater, Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria, High Sensitivity, RBC (ARUP test code 2004366) is available. This test also detects minor (0.005-0.999 percent) PNH clone populations found in bone marrow failure disorders.
