G6PD GENE MUTATION DETECTION

This assay is useful for the detection of mutations in G6PD gene. G6PD deficiency, also known as favism (after the fava bean) is an X-linked recessive genetic condition that predisposes to hemolysis (spontaneous destruction of red blood cells) and resultant jaundice in response to a number of triggers, such as certain foods, illness, or medication.
