After receiving your order, we will get started with your test kit. Your test kit will be sent by post and will fit in your letterbox. You can see in the image what you will receive.
We only use cells from the cheek mucosa. Just scrape with a cotton swab on the inside of your cheek and you're done. So... no needles and no blood!
It's very simple: our test kit contains a special cotton swab that allows you to easily collect saliva by moving it along the inside of your cheek. You send the cotton swab back to us in the return envelope and we will ensure that the lab gets to work with it.
Via our medicine pages you can find out which ones are affected by your DNA. Each medicine page has a specific box of whether there is an influence. However, the nature of the influence and which genes are involved are not mentioned. You can find this information in your account under the medicines option. You will find further explanation in your report when you have performed a pharmacogenetic test.
Our pharmacogenetic test checks the following genes: ABCB1, ALDH2, BCHE, COMT, CYP1A2, CYP2B6, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, CYP2D6-enhancer, CYP2E1, CYP3A4, CYP3A5, CYP4F2, DPYD, F2, F5, G6PD, GRIK4, HLA-B*1502, IFNL3, MTHFR, OPRM1, SLCO1B1, TPMT, UGT1A1 and VKORC1.
We will send you an email as soon as the data from the lab is received by us.
Within your account all tested data are clearly displayed. We clearly indicate what the outcome means and what impact this can have for you.
We aim to be able to offer you the results of the lab with 3-4 weeks. When the time comes, you will receive an email from us. Your results will then be visible in your account. Due to covid pandemic, the lab might be temporarily busier than usual and in that case some delay might be experienced.
For the DNA analysis we work together with an established and accredited laboratory. This way we can offer a high quality DNA analysis.
You can choose one of the four available payment methods:
Pharmacogenetic testing is reimbursed if a patient has serious side effects or if the drug is unexpectedly ineffective. It certainly makes sense to submit the invoice to your health insurer.
NOTE: despite the medical context, this situation may not be valid for insurers operating in the UK.
That is easy: you do!
You determine what happens to your data. We ensure that this is done in the most reliable and safe way. We can give you more information about your genes if you leave the data with us, but you can also delete them from us. That is your choice, since the data is yours.
The data are yours. And if we run into a research project we would like your cooperation with, to enhance science, we will contact you and ask for your participation. Without your explicit permission, at that moment, nothing happens.
We do our utmost to prevent bad things from happening: we have taken measures to prevent illegal access so that your genetic information is safe with us.
The possible results are as follows, per gene:
