DNA SERVICES

We are proud to introduce our NEW DNA test!


  • Our new, customised LifestyleGenomicsGeneSpr chip: designed by Illumina. Based on the Global Screening Array, in addition to 650.000 SNPs our unique microarray also contains our own set of SNPs, no longer available through the most popular DNA testing companies.


  • Chip content tailored for precision medicine research: our new chip  provides a genomic tool for clinical research applications including disease risk profiling studies, pharmacogenomics research, wellness characterisation, and complex disease discovery.



  • Raw Data included: Raw Data available as .txt file, potentially compatible with other internet apps, designed to interpret direct - to - consumer DNA test results.



  • New and expanded Gene Variant Reports: We are expanding our variant reports by adding more sections related to your genetic susceptibilities in the following areas:


  • Cardiovascular Health


  • Mental Health


  • Bone Health


  • Mouth Health


  • Skin Health


  • Thyroid Health


  • Oxalates metabolism


  • Even more MTHFR SNPs


  • Expanded Transsulfuration pathway - SUOX SNPs


  • Even more markers related to inflammation and immunesystem function, such as SNPs related to Th17 arm of the immune system, autoimmunity, Celiac disease, Crohn's disease, Unceralive Colitis, IBS, Hayfever and Asthma.




...PLUS ALL OF THE GOOD, OLD FEATURES THAT WE ARE KEEPING IN PLACE:



  • Genetic Variant Report Included: no need for 3rd party software or to pay extra to convert your raw data! Although your report is already included in the price you will now also, potentially have the flexibility or running your raw data through other 3rd party applications available on the internet.


  • Heavily referenced with scientific research.


  • Diagrams and Pathways included for easier visualisation: also includes factors up-regulating and down-regulating gene function.


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



  • Factors and compounds up-regulating and down-regulating gene function: every variant description is also equipped with a list of compounds affecting gene expression.



CHIP VERSION

OUR OLD CHIP

*** OUR NEW CHIP ***

 Number of markers

~ 350 SNPs (markers) only

~ 700.000 SNPs (markers)

 Raw Data

Not included. Raw Data available upon request as BAM file, not compatible with most apps designed for direct consumers of DNA tests.


Included! Raw Data available as .txt file, potentially compatible* with other internet apps designed to interpret direct to consumer DNA testing data.


 Variant Reports

 Not expandeble - can't add more markers to your reports.

 

Potentially expandable* through other 3rd party apps or you can simply look up your SNPs of interest within your raw data file


 Content

Limited to 350 of our SNPs of choice. 


Tailored for clinical research applications including disease risk profiling studies, pharmacogenomics research, wellness characterisation,  complex disease discovery and precision medicine.

Includes important SNPs recentely removed by other testing companies:


MAOA, MAOB, AOC1/DAO, SOD3, GPX, SUOX, VDR, CBS and even more MTHFR variants.


Please watch the PROMO below to see what else is included in our reports

THE PROCESS


                     

1. ORDER YOUR SAMPLE COLLECTION KIT

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


2. COLLECT THE SAMPLE AND SHIP IT BACK TO US.

Folow instructions included with the kit or watch the instruction video HERE.


3. WAIT FOR YOUR RESULTS

Our new chip will be ready to process your samples in the next 14 weeks (middle of June). From then, it should take approximately 4 weeks to issue your raw data and then your Variant Report.



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 Genetic Variant report - you can choose to delete this information from our system and we will not 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.
