An autosomal recessive condition caused by a mutation in the F7 gene (Factor VII Deficiency), or an X-linked recessive condition caused by a mutation in the F8 (Haemophilia A) or F9 (Haemophilia B) gene.

The guideline turnaround time for single tests is approximately 10-12 working days after the swab arrives at the lab.
