HOW IT WORKS
As well as a file containing raw data (all available information that the laboratory managed to extract from the genome), you will also receive a detailed report of your Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms. The categories on your report will include:
Your genetic susceptibility to cellular level defense against environmental assault and toxic load excretion ability:
IMMUNE FACTORS & INFLAMATION
METHYLATION & TRANS-SULFURATION
ABOUT THE PROCESS
ORDER YOUR SAMPLE COLLECTION KIT
Your sample collection kit will arrive within 10 (for UK ) and 10-14 (other EU countries) working days.
COLLECT THE SAMPLE AND SHIP IT BACK TO MTHFR Genetics UK
Instructions included with the kit. We now use buccal swabs so you don't have to worry about not being able to produce a certain amount of saliva anymore.

WAIT FOR YOUR RESULTS (Raw Data & Variant Reports)
The volume of samples processed varies from batch to batch and therefore, unfortunately we can't guarantee a fixed time in which your results will be ready. It normaly takes between 8-10 working weeks before we can email the raw data and variant reports.
Your indentifying information (such as name, email, address), as well as your genetic data will never be available to be used for purposes of matching, relatives search and ancestry reporting . It will also never be shared to create any publicly available profiles.
Please remember that any reported polimorphisms don't necessarily mean that you are dealing with any of the conditions linked to the genes where mutations are present.
To evaluate whether the mutated genes are expressing it is very important for Practitioners to hold thorough interviews with their patients about any factors that may have contributed to or caused the mutated genes to express themselves. These factors include: diet, physical activity, toxic exposure, allergies and sensitivities to foods or chemicals, medications and supplements, family disease history. More information about more contributing factors can be found in the scientific research data available with the report.
Additional laboratory tests (blood and urine) for markers active and crucial for the efficient flow in the Methylation and the related cycles are also very important tools and are very often crucial to determine the status of genes expression.
