It is non-invasive and straightforward, with almost zero risks. It usually involves a saliva sample for adults or a buccal (cheek) swab sample for children. These samples are sent to a genetics laboratory with the necessary equipment, scientists, and experience to conduct genetic screening. At the lab, DNA is extracted from each sample and analyzed by specialized machines and bioinformatics reporting systems able to generate a genetic profile of a person’s genetic variations.
The decision to undergo a genetic screening test must be voluntary. The sampling and screening process is completely safe, and, as with other health tests, each person must understand the limitations of the test. For example, a genetic screening test will never tell you if a disease or health trait, but it can tell you if you have a genetic risk for one. Since genetic screening involves looking for genetic variations inherited from parents and passed on to children, the results of your genetic screening test may have implications for a family member such as a sibling or a child.
It will take 16 working days, starting from receipt of sample. The process includes analysis done in the laboratory, and collection of results.
No. Your DNA never changes, so the results of your genetic screening test do not change over time unless scientists discover new information about your genetic variations. That is why, generally, you only have to undergo each type of genetic test once in your lifetime.
Genotyping is a streamline method of analyzing DNA in the laboratory. It determines a specific genetic variant possessed by an individual with confirmed clinical significance.
Our science and technology partner, Malaysian Genomics Resource Centre Berhad (MGRC), analyzes all test results using the best equipment in the industry, namely those from US-based genomic giant, Illumina Inc., using a technique called Chip Hybridization. Our scientists are able to simultaneously analyze hundreds of thousands of variants at location in the genome that are known or suspected for correlation with disease.
This high-level examination of an individual’s DNA is calibrated to yield clear answers for a pre-subset of medical conditions. We are able to hone in on the variable area of the genome found to encode a health-related trait. That explains why HelloDNA is able to produce the most comprehensive test results with 99.9% analytical accuracy.
