The “HHV-6 DNA Detection RNA Detection Qualitative Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify the presence of the Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) through the analysis of DNA and RNA in a patient’s sample. This qualitative test aims to detect the virus’s genetic material, providing a clear indication of an active or latent infection. HHV-6 is known for its role in causing conditions such as roseola in infants and potentially contributing to neurological diseases in adults. The test is crucial for individuals experiencing symptoms that could be attributed to HHV-6 infection or for those with weakened immune systems where the virus could pose significant health risks.

The procedure involves collecting a sample from the patient, which is then processed using advanced molecular techniques to identify the presence of HHV-6 DNA or RNA, offering a highly sensitive and specific diagnosis. This test is particularly important for clinicians in making informed decisions regarding the management and treatment of infections caused by HHV-6.

The cost of the test at DNA Labs UAE is 1090 AED, making it an accessible option for those seeking advanced diagnostic services in the region. With the expertise of DNA Labs UAE, patients and healthcare providers can expect reliable results that are crucial for the effective management of HHV-6 related conditions.

HHV 6 DNA detection RNA Detection Qualitative Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the HHV 6 DNA detection RNA Detection Qualitative Test at a cost of 1090.0 AED. This test is used to detect the presence of HHV-6, also known as human herpesvirus 6, in patients.

Test Details

HHV-6 is a common virus that infects humans and is categorized into two subtypes: HHV-6A and HHV-6B. The HHV-6B subtype is the most prevalent and is associated with various diseases, including roseola infantum.

Qualitative tests for HHV-6 detection can be performed using either DNA or RNA detection methods. These tests aim to determine the presence or absence of the virus in a patient’s sample.

DNA Detection

There are several methods for DNA detection of HHV-6:

  1. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR): This method amplifies specific DNA sequences of the HHV-6 genome, allowing for the detection of the virus. It is highly sensitive and can detect even low viral loads.
  2. Real-time PCR: This technique is similar to PCR but provides real-time monitoring of DNA amplification. It allows for quantification of viral DNA and provides information on the viral load.
  3. Nested PCR: This method involves two rounds of PCR amplification, increasing the sensitivity of HHV-6 detection. It is particularly useful when viral loads are low.

RNA Detection

There are also methods for RNA detection of HHV-6:

  1. Reverse Transcription PCR (RT-PCR): This technique is used to detect viral RNA by first converting it into complementary DNA (cDNA) using reverse transcriptase. The cDNA is then amplified using PCR. RT-PCR is commonly used to detect RNA viruses like HHV-6.
  2. Real-time RT-PCR: Similar to real-time PCR, this method allows for real-time monitoring and quantification of viral RNA. It is useful for determining viral load and monitoring the progression of HHV-6 infection.

Test Samples and Report Delivery

The HHV 6 DNA detection RNA Detection Qualitative Test can be performed on various clinical samples, including saliva, whole blood, cerebrospinal fluid, lymph node, and biopsy samples. The report will be delivered within the 3rd working day via email (36 hours) or phone (24 hours).

Test Department and Doctor

This test is conducted by our Genetics department and can be ordered by a Physician.

Pre Test Information

Prior to the test, patients are required to sign a consent document and provide any clinical history of the patient for HHV 6 (DNA detection) (RNA Detection) Qualitative Test.

These qualitative tests are crucial in diagnosing HHV-6 infections, especially in immunocompromised individuals or patients with suspected HHV-6-associated diseases.
