What is Osmotic Fragility Test?

Osmotic Fragility Testing is a simple blood test. During the osmotic fragility test, your red blood cells are introduced to various salt solutions. Spherocytosis or thalassemia frequently implies fragile cells.

An osmotic fragility test can help detect thalassemia and hereditary spherocytosis:

Thalassemia produces abnormal haemoglobin production. Haemoglobin is the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells. Red blood cells are more likely to be damaged in thalassemia. Anaemia can result.

• Hereditary spherocytosis affects the outer layer of red blood cells, causing form distortion. This causes fragile red blood cells and premature destruction, causing anaemia.

Why done? 

Thalassemia is a condition in which your body creates a strange kind of haemoglobin that prevents red blood cells from carrying oxygen. Hereditary spherocytosis is when the outer coating of red blood cells is damaged, resulting in anaemia. Anaemia is characterized by fatigue, shortness of breath, palpitations, dizziness, and the inability to exercise vigorously.


An osmotic fragility test requires a blood sample. You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein, and your red blood cells will be broken down in a salt solution. The test is positive if your red blood cells are more brittle than average.
