Allelic Discrimination, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
Mutation detection in candidate gene for hereditary hemochromatosis.
Interpretive report provided.
This test will detect the C282Y and/or H63D variants. Other mutations in the HFE gene or other causes of hereditary hemochromatosis will not be detected. The results should be interpreted in conjunction with iron studies, family history and clinical findings. Full HFE gene sequencing and possibly deletion/duplication analysis may be considered if clinical suspicion of hereditary hemochromatosis remains high.
