The “SCA-7 Spinocerebellar Ataxia ATXN7 Gene Mutation Test” is a specialized genetic test designed to identify mutations in the ATXN7 gene, which are known to cause Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 7 (SCA-7). SCA-7 is a rare, inherited neurological disorder characterized by progressive ataxia, or loss of coordination and balance, as well as visual impairments due to degeneration of the cerebellum and other parts of the brain. This test is crucial for individuals with a family history of the disorder or those exhibiting symptoms, as it can confirm a diagnosis, allowing for better management of the condition and genetic counseling.

The test involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw or cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for the presence of specific mutations in the ATXN7 gene that are responsible for SCA-7. This genetic testing is an important step in understanding the risk of passing the condition to future generations and can aid in making informed decisions about family planning.

In the United Arab Emirates, this test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a facility known for its state-of-the-art genetic testing services. The cost of the SCA-7 Spinocerebellar Ataxia ATXN7 Gene Mutation Test is 590 AED, making it accessible for individuals seeking genetic testing for this condition. By opting for this test at DNA Labs UAE, patients can expect reliable results, professional counseling, and comprehensive support throughout the testing process.

SCA-7 SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA ATXN7 GENE MUTATION Test

Are you experiencing symptoms of progressive ataxia, vision impairment, and other neurological symptoms? The SCA-7 (Spinocerebellar Ataxia) genetic test offered by DNA Labs UAE can help diagnose the cause of these symptoms.

Test Details

The SCA-7 genetic test is designed to detect mutations in the ATXN7 gene, which is responsible for causing SCA-7. SCA-7 is a rare neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the loss of muscle coordination and vision impairment.

To perform the test, a sample of your DNA is required. This can be obtained through a blood or saliva sample. The DNA sample is then analyzed for any mutations or abnormalities in the ATXN7 gene.

If a mutation is detected, it confirms a diagnosis of SCA-7. This information can be crucial in providing a definitive diagnosis for individuals showing symptoms of the condition, especially when other diagnostic methods are inconclusive.

Test Cost

The cost of the SCA-7 SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA ATXN7 GENE MUTATION Test at DNA Labs UAE is AED 590.0.

Sample Requirements

  • Sample Condition: 4 mL (2 mL min.) whole blood in 1 Lavender top (EDTA) tube.
  • Sample Shipping: Ship refrigerated. DO NOT FREEZE.

Report Delivery

Sample must be submitted by Tuesday 11 am to receive the report by Saturday.

Method

The SCA-7 SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA ATXN7 GENE MUTATION Test is performed using PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and Fragment Analysis techniques.

Test Type

The SCA-7 SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA ATXN7 GENE MUTATION Test falls under the category of Neurologic Disorder-Ataxia.

Doctor

This test is recommended to be ordered by a Neurologist.

Test Department

The SCA-7 SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA ATXN7 GENE MUTATION Test is conducted in the Molecular Diagnostics department at DNA Labs UAE.

Pre Test Information

Before undergoing the test, it is mandatory to fill the Genomics Clinical Information Requisition Form (Form 20).

Genetic Counseling

Genetic counseling is often recommended before and after the test to discuss the implications of the results and provide support to individuals and families affected by SCA-7.

Don’t let the symptoms of SCA-7 go undiagnosed. Visit DNA Labs UAE for the SCA-7 SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA ATXN7 GENE MUTATION Test today.

Test Details

The SCA-7 (Spinocerebellar Ataxia) genetic test is used to detect mutations in the ATXN7 gene, which is responsible for causing SCA-7. SCA-7 is a rare neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive ataxia (loss of muscle coordination), vision impairment, and other neurological symptoms.

The test involves analyzing a person’s DNA sample, usually obtained through a blood or saliva sample. The DNA is then examined for any mutations or abnormalities in the ATXN7 gene. If a mutation is detected, it confirms a diagnosis of SCA-7.

Genetic testing for SCA-7 can be helpful in several ways. It can provide a definitive diagnosis for individuals showing symptoms of the condition, especially when other diagnostic methods are inconclusive. It can also help identify carriers of the mutated gene who may be at risk of passing it on to their children.

It is important to note that genetic testing for SCA-7 is typically done in specialized genetic testing laboratories and requires a healthcare professional’s order. Genetic counseling is often recommended before and after the test to discuss the implications of the results and provide support to individuals and families affected by SCA-7.
