Test Details & Preparation


  • TIBC- Total Iron Binding Capacity test is done to assess your body's ability to transport iron in the blood.

  • TIBC- Total Iron Binding Capacity test is performed when your doctor suspects you may have too much or too little iron in your body because of a variety of conditions to help monitor liver function and nutrition.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm for a TIBC test.

  • You may be instructed to fast for 12 hours before a TIBC test in this case, only water is allowed.

  • A high TIBC, UIBC, or transferrin usually indicates iron deficiency, but they are also increased in pregnancy and with the use of oral contraceptives.

  • A low TIBC, UIBC, or transferrin may occur if someone has certain types of anaemia due to accumulated iron, malnutrition, inflammation, liver disease etc.

  • Transferrin saturation is decreased with iron deficiency and increased when excess amounts of iron are present, as in iron overload or poisoning.

  • Recent blood transfusions can affect test results. Multiple blood transfusions can sometimes lead to iron overload.
