**Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection Test at DNA Labs UAE**

The Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection Test is a crucial diagnostic tool offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at identifying the presence of mutations in the HBB gene, which are responsible for sickle cell anemia. This condition, characterized by the production of abnormal hemoglobin S, leads to the distortion of red blood cells into a sickle shape, causing severe pain, anemia, and other complications. The test involves a simple blood sample from which DNA is extracted and analyzed for the specific genetic mutations.

With a cost of 700 AED, the test provides individuals and families with critical information regarding the genetic predisposition to sickle cell anemia. It is particularly valuable for prospective parents and individuals with a family history of the disease. By identifying carriers of the sickle cell trait, the test enables informed decisions regarding family planning and the management of the condition.

DNA Labs UAE, with its state-of-the-art facilities and expert team, ensures accurate and reliable results, making the Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection Test an essential resource for those at risk of this genetic disorder.

Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection Test

Are you concerned about sickle cell anemia? DNA Labs UAE offers the Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test to help diagnose this genetic disorder. Read on to learn more about the test, its cost, symptoms, diagnosis, and more.

Test Details

The Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test is a diagnostic test used to detect mutations in the gene responsible for sickle cell anemia. Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disorder characterized by the presence of abnormal hemoglobin, which leads to the production of sickle-shaped red blood cells.

Test Components

  • HBB

Test Cost

The cost of the Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test is AED 700.0.

Sample Condition

A minimum of 2 mL and a maximum of 4 mL of whole blood from 1 Lavender Top (EDTA) tube is required for the test. The sample should be shipped refrigerated and should not be frozen. Additionally, a duly filled Genomics Clinical Information Requisition Form (Form 20) is mandatory.

Report Delivery

The sample should be submitted by Monday 11 am, and the report will be delivered on Friday.

Method

The Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test uses PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and Sequencing methods for analysis.

Test Type

The Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test specifically targets sickle cell anemia.

Doctor

The test is performed under the supervision of a physician or hematologist.

Test Department

The Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test is conducted in the Molecular Diagnostics department.

Pre Test Information

A duly filled Genomics Clinical Information Requisition Form (Form 20) is mandatory before undergoing the test.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Sickle cell anemia can cause a variety of symptoms, including fatigue, jaundice, pain crises, and increased susceptibility to infections. Diagnosis of sickle cell anemia is confirmed through genetic testing, such as the Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test.

Carrier Testing

The Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test can also be used for carrier testing. This is particularly important for individuals with a family history of sickle cell anemia, as they may be at risk of passing the mutation on to their children.

Importance of Early Detection

Early detection of the sickle cell anemia mutation is crucial for appropriate management and treatment of the condition. It allows for early intervention and monitoring to prevent complications associated with the disease, such as pain crises, organ damage, and infections.

Treatment and Genetic Counseling

It is important to note that the Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test is not a cure for sickle cell anemia. However, it provides valuable information for healthcare providers to develop an appropriate treatment plan and offer genetic counseling to affected individuals and their families.

If you suspect you or a loved one may have sickle cell anemia, don’t hesitate to contact DNA Labs UAE for the Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test. Early detection can make a significant difference in managing this genetic disorder.

Test Details

The Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test is a diagnostic test used to detect mutations in the gene responsible for sickle cell anemia. Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disorder characterized by the presence of abnormal hemoglobin, which leads to the production of sickle-shaped red blood cells.

The test typically involves a blood sample from the patient, which is then analyzed in a laboratory. There are several different methods used to detect the specific mutation responsible for sickle cell anemia, including DNA sequencing, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis.

The test can identify the specific mutation in the gene that causes sickle cell anemia, allowing for a definitive diagnosis. It can also be used for carrier testing, which is important for individuals with a family history of sickle cell anemia who may be at risk of passing the mutation on to their children.

Early detection of the sickle cell anemia mutation is crucial for appropriate management and treatment of the condition. It allows for early intervention and monitoring to prevent complications associated with the disease, such as pain crises, organ damage, and infections.

It is important to note that the Sickle Cell Anemia Mutation Detection test is not a cure for sickle cell anemia. However, it provides valuable information for healthcare providers to develop an appropriate treatment plan and offer genetic counseling to affected individuals and their families.
