    The management of life-threatening complications in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) requires an accurate and reproducible quantification of haemoglobin A (HbA) and S (HbS) with a short turnaround time and 24-7 availability. We propose a novel method for quantifying HbA and HbS using the glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) assay on a Tosoh HLC-723G8 (G8) analyser in variant mode. HbA and HbS results obtained using our method highly correlated with results obtained using a reference method (r > 0.99 for 124 samples of patients with SCD or sickle cell trait). Our method met laboratory requirements for linearity (coefficient of variation [CV] and bias <5%), between-run and within-run reproducibility (CV <10%) and carryover (<0.5%) over the range of HbS and HbA values expected in a therapeutic context. Using the G8 analyser in variant mode is viable for monitoring HbA and HbS concentrations in dire situations. This method is easy to use, quick (1.6 min per sample), and automatable and produces highly reproducible results without significant bias. Finally, it does not require modifications to the analytical pipeline recommended by the supplier, enabling a 24-7 availability without disrupting routine monitoring of HbA1c in the laboratory. © 2023 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
