Important Information:
If enzyme assay testing yields results where AGAL levels are in the “probable” or “indeterminate” category, the sample will be reflexed into DNA screening. The DNA screening technology uses a fluorescent heteroduplex assay to detect potential mutations in the GLA gene. Directed sequencing of the GLA gene is done if mutational screening is positive. Full DNA sequencing can be done with prior authorization.
