The Haptoglobin Genotyping Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at identifying the specific type of haptoglobin gene an individual possesses. Haptoglobin is a protein produced by the liver, playing a crucial role in binding free hemoglobin released from red blood cells, thus preventing kidney damage and conserving iron. The genotyping test is essential because the haptoglobin genotype can significantly influence an individual’s susceptibility to various diseases, including cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, as well as their response to certain infections.

This test is particularly useful in personalized medicine, helping healthcare providers tailor treatments and preventive measures based on the patient’s genetic makeup. For example, individuals with certain haptoglobin genotypes might be at higher risk for heart disease when they have diabetes, guiding clinicians in choosing the most effective management strategies.

In the United Arab Emirates, the Haptoglobin Genotyping Test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic testing and analysis. The cost of the test is 870 AED, reflecting the sophisticated technology and expertise required to accurately determine haptoglobin genotypes. By choosing DNA Labs UAE for this test, patients can expect reliable results that can significantly impact their health management plans.

Haptoglobin Genotyping Test

Test Cost: AED 870.0

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the Haptoglobin Genotyping Test to determine an individual’s haptoglobin genotype. Haptoglobin is a protein produced by the liver and released into the bloodstream. It binds to free hemoglobin, preventing its potential toxic effects.

Test Components and Price

The Haptoglobin Genotyping Test is priced at AED 870.0. The test requires a sample of 4 mL (2 mL min.) of whole blood collected in 1 Lavender top (EDTA) tube. The sample should be shipped refrigerated and should not be frozen.

Report Delivery

Sample collection for the test is done on Tuesdays and Saturdays by 11 am. The test report will be delivered within 8 days.

Test Method and Type

The Haptoglobin Genotyping Test is performed using the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method. It falls under the category of Genetic Disorders tests.

Test Department and Doctor

The test is conducted in the Molecular Diagnostics department and is supervised by a qualified Physician.

Pre Test Information

No special preparation is required before taking the Haptoglobin Genotyping Test.

Test Details

The Haptoglobin Genotyping Test analyzes an individual’s DNA to identify the presence of two alleles, Hp1 and Hp2, which determine the haptoglobin genotype. The test can be performed using various techniques, such as PCR or DNA sequencing.

The haptoglobin genotype can have implications for various health conditions. For example, individuals with the Hp2-2 genotype have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. On the other hand, individuals with the Hp1-1 genotype may have a better response to certain treatments or medications.

Overall, haptoglobin genotyping provides valuable information about an individual’s genetic predisposition to certain health conditions and may help guide personalized medical interventions.

Test Details

Haptoglobin genotyping is a test used to determine an individual’s haptoglobin genotype. Haptoglobin is a protein produced by the liver and released into the bloodstream. It binds to free hemoglobin, which is released when red blood cells are destroyed, preventing its potential toxic effects.

There are three common haptoglobin genotypes: Hp1-1, Hp2-1, and Hp2-2. The genotype is determined by the presence or absence of two alleles, Hp1 and Hp2. The Hp1 allele produces a shorter haptoglobin protein, while the Hp2 allele produces a longer protein.

The haptoglobin genotyping test involves analyzing an individual’s DNA to identify the presence of the Hp1 and Hp2 alleles. This can be done using various techniques, such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or DNA sequencing.

The haptoglobin genotype can have implications for various health conditions. For example, individuals with the Hp2-2 genotype have been found to have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. On the other hand, individuals with the Hp1-1 genotype may have a better response to certain treatments or medications.

Overall, haptoglobin genotyping can provide valuable information about an individual’s genetic predisposition to certain health conditions and may help guide personalized medical interventions.
