The WDR36 Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1G Genetic Test is a specialized diagnostic assessment offered at DNA Labs UAE, designed to detect mutations in the WDR36 gene, which have been associated with open-angle glaucoma, the most common form of glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is characterized by the gradual loss of vision due to damage to the optic nerve, often without early symptoms, making genetic testing a valuable tool for early detection and management.

The test is priced at 4400 AED and involves collecting a DNA sample, typically through a blood draw or cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for specific genetic variations in the WDR36 gene that are known to increase the risk of developing open-angle glaucoma. Identifying individuals at risk allows for early intervention, potentially slowing the progression of the disease and preserving vision. DNA Labs UAE provides this testing service with a focus on accuracy, confidentiality, and support, offering a crucial resource for those with a family history of glaucoma or individuals experiencing related symptoms.

WDR36 Gene Glaucoma open angle type 1G Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the WDR36 Gene Glaucoma open angle type 1G Genetic Test. This test helps in the diagnosis of glaucoma and can provide valuable information about the genetic factors associated with the condition.

Test Details

The WDR36 gene is associated with the development of glaucoma, specifically open angle type 1G (GLC1G). This type of glaucoma is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, meaning that a person only needs to inherit one copy of the mutated gene from either parent to develop the condition.

NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) genetic testing can be used to analyze the WDR36 gene for mutations that may be associated with GLC1G. This type of testing can identify specific changes in the DNA sequence that may be responsible for the development of the condition.

Genetic testing for GLC1G may be recommended for individuals with a family history of the condition, as well as those who have been diagnosed with glaucoma at a young age or have other risk factors for the disease. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma can help prevent vision loss and other complications associated with the condition.

Test Components and Price

The WDR36 Gene Glaucoma open angle type 1G Genetic Test is priced at 4400.0 AED.

Sample Condition

The test requires a blood sample or extracted DNA. Alternatively, one drop of blood can be collected on an FTA Card.

Report Delivery
