Molecular genetic confirmatory testing with polymerase chain reaction amplification is integral to neonatal hemoglobinopathy screening programs. In this study, we demonstrate applicability of polymerase chain reaction-based testing for the common deletions in blacks responsible for hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin. This approach will provide rapid diagnostic clarification in newborn screening follow-up.
