Thalassaemia is the commonest single gene disorder found in a broad belt extending from the Mediterranean to the Far East. Carrier screening has played a pivotal role in the reduction of new births of children with thalassaemia major. The success stories of thalassaemia prevention mostly emanate from the developed countries. Unfortunately, most of the developing countries are still struggling to succeed with thalassaemia prevention. The main concerns include high cost of testing and the lack of service delivery in the less well developed areas.
Thal-IT is the brainchild of Dr. Suhaib Ahmed. The name is derived from tackling “Thalassaemia through Information Technology”. We are a subsidiary of Genetic Technology Instrumentation (GTI) that has developed a complete solution for cost effective screening of thalassaemia. Our products are user friendly and with minimal training these can be used at very small setups. We primarily focus at the developing countries where thalassaemia is still a major cause of concern.
Thal-IT also provides a platform for creating awareness about thalassaemia screening and training of manpower through information brochures, videos and live demonstrations.

We offer a range of equipment and diagnostic kits for carrier screening and diagnosis of thalassaemia and abnormal haemoglobins.
The OTOFT Pack includes OTOFT Rack and OTOFT Reagent. OTOFT is most suitable for work in the field area where it can provide on the spot information for carrier screening. The test has ~99% negative predictive value.
The haemoglobin electrophoresis kit includes high quality reagents for the preparation of haemolysates, electrophoresis buffer, elution buffer, cellulose acetate membrane strips and filter paper wicks.
The electrophoresis apparatus includes an electrophoresis tank, sample applicator and a mini power supply. The compact design of the tank ensures reagent economy. The compact power supply is equipped with a fixed timer.
The image capture device is meant for taking pictures through a mobile phone camera. It fits on top of the haemoglobin electrophoresis tank and has a built in illumination system that operates with a separate power supply.
Thal-IT is a unique App for the Android phones that creates color histograms of the samples in an image. It can analyze the electrophoresis images of haemoglobin, serum proteins and a wide variety of PCR amplified products.
