Service Description

Real-Time PCR Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease caused by two mutated copies of a gene called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). CF carriers have one mutated copy of CFTR. If one copy is mutated, you are a CF carrier and most carriers do not usually exhibit the genetic disease. If both copies of CFTR are mutated, you have CF. 50 percent of patients with CF have two copies of a different mutation (called delta F508), which causes CFTR to be poorly formed and sent to the cell's recycling bin. This RT-PCR test checks the presence of CF and also delta F508. People with CF have higher risk of persistent lung infections and makes it difficult to breathe. While primarily affecting the lungs, it can also impact the digestive system, including the pancreas, liver, intestines, and kidneys. CF may also affect the ears, nose and sinuses, sex organs, and the bones and joints. Sample: BLOOD Results: 2 WEEKS Phlebotomy fee: Included in price
