Anemia ID

Discover more about your patients’ hereditary anemias

To help reach a diagnosis, free genetic testing is available through Revvity Omics for your patients with suspected hereditary anemias.

Refer a patient for
genetic testing

For information about genetic testing, call Revvity Omics at 1-866-354-2910.

The Anemia ID® genetic testing panel is available through Agios and Revvity Omics

As an alternative to genetic counseling, free collection kits can still be requested today:


Place your order by filling out the collection kit request form


Your kit will arrive within 3 business days


Collect patient sample(s) and return as directed


Expect results in approximately 21 business days; genetic counseling information will also be made available to you

Perform next-generation sequencing (NGS) testing for Coombs-negative patients when you have excluded hemoglobinopathies and the blood smear is not definitive or available.

What to expect

Agios is partnering with InformedDNA to provide free genetic counseling to your patients with suspected hereditary anemias.

InformedDNA is a tele-health genetic counseling provider. Their genetic counselors have expertise in hereditary anemias and hold appointments with patients over the phone.

After you refer a patient to InformedDNA, the genetic counselors will handle the process every step of the way.
Once your patient is registered and has an appointment scheduled, the counselor will:


Hold a pre-test consultation
Collect medical and family histories and discuss the underlying genetics of anemia


Facilitate genetic tests
Order tests and send sample collection kit to patient's home


Post-test consultation
Review the patient’s results and explain the implications on personal and family health


Summary report
You and your patient will receive a copy of all results and additional testing recommendations

For more information about genetic counseling, call InformedDNA at 1-888-778-0427.
