Genetic testing technology

In 1953, the DNA structure was discovered and the field of biotechnology was reborn, with no difference to the information technology other than it deals with 4 characters (A C T G) rather than two (0 and 1).

This new spectrum of biotechnology is focused on utilising the information derived from nucleic acid testing techniques for the better understanding of biological processes, living organisms, chemical systems and molecular structures in order to make better diagnosis and treatment regimens.

We adopted a targeted DNA testing strategy

We only test for specific DNA segments or points of “glitches” that have been strongly associated with certain physiological, behavioural or hormonal traits. We use this approach to bring more certainty to our users and eliminate ambiguities brought by other DNA testing offerings that look at larger segments of DNA with variants of uncertain significance (VUS).

Our gene panel list is assayed through a genotyping technology that utilises competitive allele-specific PCR, which enables highly accurate bi-allelic scoring of SNPs (99.8% accurate) and indels (insertions and deletions) at specific loci across a wide range of genomic DNA samples (SNP & indel assay conversion rate 90%), thereby limiting the risk of false-positive and false-negative results.

Once the results have been processed, the reports are then reviewed by our specialist partners, along with your provided health information, via our online platform in order to deliver an accurate assessment for each individual result.

IT Engineering

We've built a revolutionary cloud based system, and data security is of great importance to us. To protect your data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure data collected through our site.

Steps we take to secure and protect your data include

All users sensitive data and genetic info is stored in our database in anonymised and encrypted format.

We use a multi-level security system on all application layers.

Apps development was built using CQRS and DDD patterns.

All data transfers are secured over standard SSL SHA-256 ECDSA.

Data held in a secure database server and protected by a dedicated firewall.
