Mutation Detection Rate

This test can detect >99.9% of described mutations in GBA, when present (analytic sensitivity).

Test Description

Our GD genetic test includes full gene sequence analysis performed by PCR-based double-stranded automated sequencing in the sense and antisense directions for exons 1-11 of the GBA gene, plus at least 5  bases into the 5’ and 3’ ends of all the introns. Specific mutation analysis for individual GBA mutations known to be in the family is also available.
