Test ID: GALTP    
Galactose-1-Phosphate Uridyltransferase Biochemical Phenotyping, Erythrocytes

NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.

Yes

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Determining the biochemical phenotype for galactosemia when enzymatic and molecular results are incongruent

 

A quantitative galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase level (GALT / Galactose-1-Phosphate Uridyltransferase [GALT], Blood) is required for accurate interpretation.

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct test or proper submission of the test request

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

A quantitative galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) level (GALT / Galactose-1-Phosphate Uridyltransferase [GALT], Blood) is used in addition to the isoelectric focusing for accurate interpretation. If recent GALT test results are not provided, GALT will be automatically performed at an additional charge. However, if previous GALT results are provided, GALT testing will be cancelled and not charged.
