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.
GCT / Galactosemia Reflex, Blood is the preferred test to evaluate for possible diagnosis of galactosemia, routine carrier screening, and follow-up of abnormal newborn screening results.
