PROCESS FOR DETECTING HUMAN HAEMOGLOBIN VARIANTS

hemoglobin

Invention relates to a process for detecting the presence or absence of human hemoglobin HbAO and/or HbE in a sample by way of nanoparticle -hemoglobin interaction. Process for detecting the presence or absence of human hemoglobin HbAO and/or HbE in a sample comprises treating sample with copper nanoparticle, formation of moderate precipitate or aggregate indicating the presence of human haemoglobin HbE and the process has diagnostic ability to differentiate among proteins by the extent of their unfolding.
