We believe that:
Genotype + Environment = Phenotype.
Physical characteristics are the result of a complex interaction between genes and environmental factors, and to make a sensible and actionable insight from Genetic information, we:
A. Engage a qualified partner specialist whenever a clinical report is set to be sent out to one of our patients, in order to provide an accurate and actionable interpretation.
B. Maintain the highest level of quality and privacy in our service.
C. Communicate information in an understandable and UI friendly manner to the general public, whilst presenting information that is appropriate for further medical advice.
It all started with a drug complication that Rightangled’s co-founder saw first hand in her family. Floriane's relative was experiencing drug side effects and responding poorly to an anticoagulant drug. The medication was Plavix (Clopidogrel) and the side effects were gum bleeding and bruises. After seeing her relative survive 5 strokes, it was clear that the drug was not working and a personalised treatment regimen was needed.
With Abdullah's knowledge about genetics and its influence on the way we respond to drugs, him and Flo decided to make genetic information more readily available. The concept of a new service design was born, to enable the use of genetic information within the medical practice, in an accurate, streamlined and affordable way. The Heart DNA Test project was later presented to one of the NHS innovation adoption arms in the West Midlands, and it later received the backing and funding from NHS England.
Heart DNA testing service was launched in mid 2017 and ever since, it has been helping private practices around London and abroad to remove patient-physician communication barriers, helping patients minimise their cardiac risks and reach their optimal treatment regimen faster, and for doctors to have a complete risk profile for their patients that is objective and evidence-based.
In early 2019, Rightangled fully launched its second specialised genetic testing service that tapped into the fitness and wellbeing markets. The new testing service expanded the company's transatlantic operations with a second branch that later opened in Austin, Texas.
In December 2019, the world has witnessed an unprecedented epidemic emerging from Wuhan City at Hubei province in China. A virus, later known as the SARS-CoV-2 virus, quickly spread across the globe. At Rightangled, like all other businesses, we felt the need to contribute and help people feel more certain and above all to Stay at home, limiting the spread of the virus to the more vulnerable in the society. Hence, we developed a home-based throat swab test to detect the viral infection, by testing viral load presented in its nucleic acid material within (RNA).
