The “MAF Gene Cataract Pulverulent or Cerulean with or without Microcornea Genetic Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify mutations in the MAF gene, which are known to cause specific types of cataracts. These cataracts can appear as pulverulent (dusty or powdery) or cerulean (blue-dot) and may occur with or without microcornea, a condition where the cornea is abnormally small. The test is critical for individuals who exhibit symptoms of these eye conditions or have a family history of them, as early detection can aid in managing the disease and planning for potential treatments. The cost of the test is 4400 AED, reflecting the specialized nature of the genetic analysis and the sophisticated technology employed to ensure accurate results. Conducted in the state-of-the-art facilities of DNA Labs UAE, this genetic test represents a significant step forward in personalized medicine and offers hope for affected individuals and their families.

Genetic Test for MAF Gene Cataract

Welcome to DNA Labs UAE, where we offer comprehensive genetic testing services. In this blog, we will discuss the MAF Gene Cataract pulverulent or cerulean with or without microcornea Genetic Test, including its cost, symptoms, diagnosis, and more.

Test Details

The MAF gene encodes a transcription factor that is crucial for the development and maintenance of the lens of the eye. Mutations in this gene have been linked to various forms of cataract, including pulverulent or cerulean cataract. These cataracts are characterized by the presence of opaque or blue-white deposits in the lens. They can occur with or without microcornea, a condition where the cornea is abnormally small.

Our MAF Gene Cataract Genetic Test utilizes NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology to identify mutations in the MAF gene that may be responsible for cataract formation. By sequencing the DNA of the patient, we can identify any variations or mutations in the MAF gene, allowing for a specific diagnosis and personalized treatment options.

Test Components and Price

The MAF Gene Cataract Genetic Test is priced at 4400.0 AED. The test requires a blood sample, extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card.

Report Delivery and Method

After the sample is collected, the report will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks. The test is performed using NGS technology, which ensures accurate and reliable results.

Test Type and Doctor

The MAF Gene Cataract Genetic Test falls under the category of Ophthalmology Disorders. It is recommended to consult an Ophthalmologist for this test.

Test Department and Pre Test Information

The MAF Gene Cataract Genetic Test is conducted in our Genetics department. Prior to the test, it is important to provide the clinical history of the patient who is undergoing the test. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session is recommended to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected by MAF Gene Cataract, pulverulent or cerulean, with or without microcornea.

Benefits of Genetic Testing

Genetic testing for MAF Gene Cataract can not only aid in the diagnosis of the specific type of cataract but also provide personalized treatment options. It can also be helpful in identifying other family members who may be at risk for developing cataracts, allowing for early intervention and preventive measures.

At DNA Labs UAE, we strive to provide accurate and reliable genetic testing services. Our MAF Gene Cataract Genetic Test can help in the early detection and management of cataracts. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
