The Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify specific genetic mutations associated with benign infantile epilepsy (BIE). This condition, typically emerging in the early months of a child’s life, is characterized by seizures that the child eventually outgrows, usually without long-term neurological effects. However, early and accurate diagnosis is crucial for effective management and to differentiate BIE from other more serious neurological conditions.

The test involves analyzing a small sample of the patient’s DNA, extracted from a blood sample, to scrutinize multiple genes known to be linked with benign infantile epilepsy. By employing cutting-edge genetic sequencing technologies, DNA Labs UAE ensures a comprehensive examination of these genes, facilitating a precise diagnosis.

The cost of the Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test at DNA Labs UAE is 7200 AED. This price reflects the advanced technology and expertise required to perform this intricate analysis. For families and physicians, the test offers invaluable insights, enabling tailored treatment plans that can significantly improve the quality of life for affected infants, ensuring they receive the most appropriate care from the earliest stages of their lives.

Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test to screen for mutations in genes associated with benign infantile epilepsy (BIE). This genetic test helps in diagnosing and understanding the symptoms of BIE.

Test Details

The Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test is a genetic test that screens for mutations in genes associated with benign infantile epilepsy (BIE). BIE is a type of epilepsy that typically occurs in infants between 3 and 12 months of age and is characterized by brief, self-limiting seizures that do not cause long-term neurological damage.

The panel typically includes genes such as KCNQ2, KCNQ3, SCN2A, and SCN8A, which are known to be associated with BIE. Mutations in these genes can cause disruptions in the electrical activity of the brain, leading to seizures.

Test Components

  • Sterile container
  • Sterile Normal Saline Container
  • EDTA Vacutainer

Price

The cost of the Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test is 7200.0 AED.

Sample Condition

The test can be performed using samples of amniotic fluid, chorionic villi, or peripheral blood.

Report Delivery

Results from the test are typically delivered within 4-6 weeks.

Method

The Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test is performed using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology.

Test Type

The test falls under the category of Genetics.

Doctor

The test can be ordered by a General Physician.

Test Department

The test is conducted in our specialized Test Department.

Pre Test Information

The Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test requires a doctor’s prescription. However, it is not applicable for surgery and pregnancy cases or individuals planning to travel abroad.

Conclusion

The Benign Infantile Epilepsy Gene Panel Test is an essential tool for diagnosing and understanding the genetic factors associated with benign infantile epilepsy. While the test can identify mutations in genes associated with BIE, it is important to note that not all cases of BIE are caused by genetic mutations. Other factors, such as environmental factors or developmental abnormalities, may also play a role in the development of BIE.
