What you get

 

 

  • DNA Genotyping: Your sample is analysed in our accredited UK lab by highly trained and experienced staff, specialised in academic research.

 

  • Genetic Variant Report Included: no need for 3rd party software or to pay extra to convert your raw data! Your report is already included in the price! Scroll down for details.

 

  • Heavily referenced with scientific research

 

  • Diagrams and Pathways included for easier visualisation: also includes factors upregulating and downregulating gene function.

 

  • Extremely educational: Thoroughly described genetic variants and their meaing in human biology.

 

  • Practical information: Conceptualisation of Clinical approach - when a gene is best addressed and what supportive labs to run.

 

  • Factors and compounds upregulating and downregulating gene function: every variant description is also equipped with a list of compunds affecting genetic expression.

THE PROCESS

 

  1. ORDER YOUR SAMPLE COLLECTION KIT

Your sample collection kit will arrive within 7 working days. May take longer for EU countries.

 

  1. 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.

Watch the instruction video HERE.

 

  1. WAIT FOR YOUR RESULTS (Raw Data, PDF Variant Report & Interactive Variant Report)

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 approximately 8-10 working weeks before we can email the raw data and variant reports.

 

 

Your Privacy is important to us

 

We take the privacy of your information seriously. 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. You have control of your raw data and Genetic Variant report - you can choose to delete this information from our system and we will no be making any effort to restore it (unless specificaly requested by you).

 

 

I've got my results. Now what?

 

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 your genetic variants 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.
