The Thalassemia Alpha Mutation Analysis Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at identifying mutations in the alpha globin gene, which are responsible for alpha thalassemia, a genetic blood disorder. This test is crucial for individuals suspected of having alpha thalassemia or those who are potential carriers of the gene mutation. By analyzing the DNA, this test can pinpoint specific genetic alterations that cause the condition, thereby facilitating accurate diagnosis and enabling appropriate management or treatment plans.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a facility known for its advanced genetic testing capabilities, this test offers a reliable means of detecting alpha thalassemia mutations. The cost of the test is set at 940 AED, making it accessible for individuals seeking comprehensive genetic analysis in the region. Through this test, patients and their families can gain valuable insights into their genetic health, allowing for informed decisions regarding their medical care and the possibility of genetic counseling if necessary.

THALASSEMIA ALPHA MUTATION ANALYSIS Test

Test Cost: AED 940.0

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Test Details

The Thalassemia Alpha Mutation Analysis test is a genetic test used to detect mutations in the alpha globin genes, which are responsible for the production of alpha globin chains in hemoglobin. Thalassemia is a group of inherited blood disorders characterized by abnormal hemoglobin production, leading to reduced red blood cell production and anemia.

This test specifically focuses on mutations in the alpha globin genes, as mutations in these genes can result in alpha thalassemia, a type of thalassemia characterized by reduced or absent production of alpha globin chains. Alpha thalassemia can range from mild to severe, depending on the number and type of mutations present.

The Thalassemia Alpha Mutation Analysis test typically involves analyzing a blood sample to identify specific mutations in the alpha globin genes. This can be done through various techniques, such as DNA sequencing or polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

The results of the test can help diagnose alpha thalassemia and determine its severity. They can also provide valuable information for genetic counseling and family planning, as alpha thalassemia is an inherited condition.

It is important to note that this test specifically targets mutations in the alpha globin genes and may not detect mutations in other genes associated with thalassemia, such as the beta globin genes. Additional tests may be necessary to fully evaluate a person’s thalassemia status.
