The HLA-B27 Qualitative PCR Test is a diagnostic procedure utilized to detect the presence of the HLA-B27 gene, which is often associated with certain autoimmune disorders, including ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions. The test employs Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology, a highly sensitive and specific method, to identify the genetic material indicative of the HLA-B27 antigen in a patient’s DNA.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, this test is a critical tool in the diagnostic process, helping healthcare professionals to confirm or rule out conditions linked to the HLA-B27 gene. The cost of the HLA-B27 Qualitative PCR Test at DNA Labs UAE is 680 AED. The test’s accuracy and quick turnaround time make it a valuable asset for patients experiencing symptoms suggestive of HLA-B27 associated conditions, allowing for timely diagnosis and the initiation of appropriate treatment strategies.

HLA – B27 QUALITATIVE PCR Test

Cost: AED 680.0

Introduction

The HLA – B27 QUALITATIVE PCR Test is a diagnostic tool offered by DNA Labs UAE to determine the presence of the HLA-B27 gene in an individual’s DNA. This test is primarily used in conjunction with clinical evaluation and other diagnostic tests to aid in the diagnosis of spondyloarthritis and related conditions.

Test Details

The HLA-B27 qualitative PCR test involves obtaining a sample of the individual’s DNA, typically through a blood sample or cheek swab. The DNA is then analyzed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology to amplify and detect the presence of the HLA-B27 gene.

Components and Price

The test costs AED 680.0 and requires a 3 mL (2 mL min.) whole blood sample from 1 Lavender Top (EDTA) tube. The sample should be shipped refrigerated and should not be frozen.

Report Delivery

The report will be delivered within 10-12 days after the sample is received.

Method

The HLA-B27 qualitative PCR test utilizes Real Time PCR technology.

Test Type

The HLA-B27 qualitative PCR test is classified as a Disease Association test.

Doctor and Test Department

The test is conducted under the supervision of a Rheumatologist and falls under the Molecular Diagnostics department.

Pre Test Information

No special preparation is required before undergoing the HLA-B27 qualitative PCR test.

Understanding the HLA-B27 Gene

HLA-B27 is a gene that codes for a protein found on the surface of white blood cells. This protein plays a role in the body’s immune response.

Association with Autoimmune Diseases

The HLA-B27 gene is associated with several autoimmune diseases, particularly ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, and other forms of spondyloarthritis.

Other Factors

It is important to note that having the HLA-B27 gene does not necessarily mean an individual will develop these conditions, as other factors such as environmental triggers also play a role.

Interpretation and Diagnosis

The HLA-B27 qualitative PCR test should be interpreted in the context of the individual’s symptoms and medical history. It is not a standalone diagnostic tool and is used in conjunction with other diagnostic tests and clinical evaluation to aid in the diagnosis of spondyloarthritis and related conditions.
