Fast and Easy Detection of HFE
Lamp Human Hemochromatosis mutation kit (rs1799945 & rs1800562)
Detection and genotyping of two points mutations in a single well of the human HFE gene.
An in vitro diagnostic test that allows the detection and genotyping of HFE mutations (C282Y, H63D) of the human Hemochromatosis gene,referred to as HFE mutations, directly from human whole blood.
Hemochromatosis is an iron disorder in which the body simply loads too much iron. This action is genetic and the excess iron, if left untreated, can damage joints, organs, and eventually be fatal.
Type I hemochromatosis is caused by defects (mutations) in the HFE gene. HFE has many purposes, but one important role is that it helps to control the amount of iron that is absorbed from food. There are several known mutations in the HFE gene, but presently testing for only three is available: C282Y, H63D, and S65C.*1
