GENETIC SCREENING

GENETIC SCREENING( The life time screening for you and your loved ones )

Genetic Screening uses genomics technologies to detect known genetic mutations, as also known as genetic markers, in your DNA. These markers are associated with common and rare genetic illnesses or disorders. Genetic markers may also indicate the potential for you to have adverse reactions towards certain types of food and drugs. It can indicate predispositions towards certain illnesses.
