The research results of modern medical science indicate that most diseases are determined by various environmental factors and genetic constitution. Genes related to some diseases which bring about health disadvantage of genetic constitution are called the susceptibility genes of the diseases.

Diseases susceptibility gene is detected from the blood or exfoliated cells of oral mucosa by gene chip technology. This method is able to detect DNA from cells and analyze which diseases people may have inherited so that they can understand their own genetic information. This personalized information is vital in order to predict the risks of physical illnesses and thus empowering individuals to improve their living environment and lifestyle habits in order to reduce or manage these risks.

No. It doesn't hurt at all. The Buccal Swab, is also known as the Cheek Swab or Mouth Swab. These swabs are used to collect DNA from the inside of the mouth or the inner cheek for most DNA tests which are mainly used for law cases that are trying to prove that the person was at the scene of a crime, to determine who the father of a child is, and for many other DNA tests related to healthcare screening. The swabs are like cotton buds and the simple procedure is to swab the inner cheek area (inside the mouth) in an up-down motion for about 10 seconds.

If you carry some kind of diseases susceptible genes, the risk of you developing this diseases are higher than others. Once detected, and if the individual can take the corresponding preventive measures, for example, improved nutrition, adjusting lifestyle habits to avoid the harmful factors which may trigger the occurrence of the diseases and going for periodically medical examinations etc, you will then be able to reduce or manage those risks.

Modern medical sciences' studies have discovered that even if you have the diseases susceptibility genes, as long as with early detection and early prevention, it is possible to delay or avoid the occurrence of the diseases to occur in your lifetime.

Yes. The Diseases Susceptibility Gene Test Results do provide you with professional advisory on measures you can take to prevent health complications.

Nevertheless, you should also use these results to consult your doctors, health care consultants, nutritionist, etc. to personalize your healthcare management.

Genetic testing and conventional medical testing are two types of tests that are carried out at different stages. Genetic testing is done to analyze the presence, absence, or risk of a specific disease and to predict the possibility of future illnesses. It falls within the scope of preventive medicine whereas conventional medical testing is carried out after the occurrence of diseases, to determine whether the diseases are in early-stages, middle-stages or final-stages.

Yes. Diseases Susceptibility Gene Test is very significant for new-borns, as it enables the discovery of any disorders or diseases susceptibility genes that may have been inherited from their parents and that will have long-term health effect.

It empowers parents to manage their child's health with the right, specific and individualized care and enables taking of steps to reduce and prevent such risks imposed.

What is the concept of Good Health? Does it mean no diseases is Good health? Disease incidences takes time to develop. Genetic testing can detect and predict the gene related diseases and thus enables early and proper prevention methods to be adopted by the individual. This is in line with the term, "prevention is better than cure", therefore it is beneficial to have a gene test to ensure one's necessary preventive measures and continual Good Health.

Yes. As we know, the occurrence of a disease may be brought about by various genetic constitution and environment factors, it is thus important and helpful for patients to do Diseases Susceptibility Gene Test as the present disease can lead to the development of other diseases that are highly correlated to that specific disease gene.

If a person has a family history of a specific disease, it does not necessarily mean that the person will certainly inherit that genetic disease. If it is inherited, then it can be detected via the Diseases Susceptibility Gene Test. The accuracy of detection rate is 99.99%.

You only need to do it once, thereafter to take appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes and periodical specific medical tests in order to lead a healthy life.

All clients' information, DNA samples and test results are kept strictly confidential. DNA samples collected are properly stored and labelled using an advanced barcode system before sending the samples to our Genetic Testing Labs overseas for analysis. Our scientists will only have access to the DNA samples which are tracked using the bar-code labels on it and without your personal details. All documents, reports and samples are well-segregated, and can only be identified through the matching of the barcode. All test results will not be revealed without the prior consent from the client.
