A pilot study was undertaken to develop a feasible neonatal screening strategy for hemoglobinopathies. Isoelectric focusing using dried blood spots samples as a primary screening technique was standardized for the first time in India. The screened positives were confirmed by high performance liquid chromatography followed by parental screening, confirmation, and education.
