The GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic tool designed to detect mutations in the GALC gene, which are responsible for Krabbe disease. Krabbe disease is a rare, inherited disorder that affects the nervous system and is caused by the deficiency of an enzyme known as galactocerebrosidase. This deficiency leads to the accumulation of harmful substances in the brain and throughout the body, resulting in severe neurological impairment.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, this genetic test is crucial for early detection, allowing for timely intervention and management of the condition. By analyzing a small sample of the patient’s DNA, the test can identify specific mutations in the GALC gene, providing vital information for families and healthcare providers.

The cost of the GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. Given the complexity and the specialized nature of this genetic testing, the price reflects the advanced technology and expertise required to accurately identify the mutations associated with Krabbe disease. Early detection through this test can significantly impact the course of the disease, offering a better quality of life for those affected.

GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test for individuals who suspect they may have Krabbe disease or have a family history of the condition. This test is designed to analyze the GALC gene and identify any genetic variations or mutations that may be present.

Test Components

  • Price: 4400.0 AED
  • Sample Condition: Blood or Extracted DNA or One drop Blood on FTA Card

Report Delivery

Results for the GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test are typically delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Method

The GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test utilizes Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology. NGS allows for the sequencing of multiple genes simultaneously, providing a more comprehensive analysis compared to traditional sequencing methods.

Test Type

The GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test falls under the category of Neurological Disorders.

Doctor

This test is recommended to be performed under the supervision of a Neurologist.

Test Department

The GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test is conducted in our Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Prior to undergoing the GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session will be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by GALC Gene Krabbe disease.

Test Details

The GALC (galactosylceramidase) gene is associated with Krabbe disease, also known as globoid cell leukodystrophy. Krabbe disease is a rare genetic disorder that affects the nervous system, specifically the myelin sheath, which is the protective covering around nerve fibers.

The NGS technology used in this test allows for a more accurate and efficient way of diagnosing genetic disorders. It can detect both common and rare genetic variants, providing a comprehensive analysis of the GALC gene.

The GALC Gene Krabbe Disease Genetic Test can help in confirming a diagnosis, guiding treatment decisions, and providing information about the risk of passing on the condition to future generations. It can also be used for prenatal testing in families with a known GALC gene mutation to determine the risk of Krabbe disease in a fetus.

It is important to consult with a healthcare professional or genetic counselor to discuss the appropriateness and availability of NGS testing for Krabbe disease and to understand the implications of the test results.

In the context of Krabbe disease, an NGS genetic test for GALC gene can help in confirming a diagnosis, guiding treatment decisions, and providing information about the risk of passing on the condition to future generations. It can also be used for prenatal testing in families with a known GALC gene mutation to determine the risk of Krabbe disease in a fetus.

It is important to consult with a healthcare professional or a genetic counselor to discuss the appropriateness and availability of NGS testing for Krabbe disease and to understand the implications of the test results.
