Why should I go for genetic screening?

Understanding your genetic profile gives you the knowledge you need to make pro-active, informed lifestyle decisions that will suit you the best. Your DNA makes you one of a kind, so it only follows that your lifestyle should take this into account to be effective.

What is the difference between diagnostic testing and non-diagnostic testing?

Wellness genetic screening is non-diagnostic, which means that it simply screens for genetic markers that could potentially affect overall wellness. On the other hand, diagnostic testing is what doctors use to confirm the presence or absence of specific diseases.

How are the genes and SNPs selected?

The genes and SNPs are selected based on two criteria:

  1. significance of the statistical relationship strength between the genetic variations and the trait within the scientific literature;
  2. applicability to our studied populations. Many of the SNPs we have chosen are more likely to occur in and impact these populations. Where we have been able to find studies that has high correlation to the traits we study, we have given a higher weight to those in our knowledge base to ensure relevance.

How accurate are these tests?

Your saliva sample is processed at our laboratory, which is licensed by the Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH), clinically certified by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), and Illumina PropelTM certified. We use Illumina DNA microarray technology to analyse your samples. The microarray chip contains highly-informative, genome-wide markers found across diverse populations, and allows us to quickly sample your DNA for unique genetic predispositions to various wellness traits. Samples run within our lab have demonstrated a 99.5% level of concordance compared with other diagnostic accredited laboratories. We continually strive to keep up with the latest developments in the field of Wellness Genomics, to provide you with the most up-to-date information. As a pioneer of Wellness Genomics in Asia, we continue to optimize for the Asian populations and subpopulations in the countries we serve.
