We present the results of the standardization of the techniques of electrophoresis of hemoglobin (Hb), lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes (LDH) and proteinuria in HYDRASYS 2 equipment, and the study of patients treated at the Institute of Hematology and Immunology and other hospitals in the country. 149 hemoglobinopathies carriers were diagnosed (AS, AC, b thalassemia heterozygous fast variant), 60 patients (SS, SC, CC), 24 patients with athalassemia or iron deficiency. Fetal hemoglobin was quantified in 93 cases with hemoglobinopaty S. Normal values of activity and LDH isoenzymes were determined in the population through the study of 50 blood donors. In patients with sickle cell anemia we found a significant increase in isoenzyme 1 (p=0.000) and isozyme 3 decreased (p=0.002). We performed the study of proteins in urine in 8 patients with hematologic malignancies who had microalbuminuria at least 2 times, with concentrations ³ 0.04 g / L. In 2 patients the results were normal, in 2 proteins were tubular origin, and in 2, proteins of glomerular origin.
