Family Genetic Testing

Family genetic testing

With the help of modern technology, we can learn more about our health through genetic testing. This meaningful genomic insight let families take steps to delay, manage or even prevent the onset of the condition they are predisposed to.

Helping families take charge of their health, for a lifetime.

Today, with the help of modern technology, we can learn more about our health through genetic testing. This meaningful genomic insight let families take steps to delay, manage or even prevent the onset of the condition they are predisposed to.

In collaboration with US-based PlumCare, Cordlife offers PlumCare DNA Advisor, a family genetic testing service under Genscreen®. PlumCare DNA Advisor helps families detect possible disease-causing genetic mutations associated with common hereditary conditions, including certain cancers and heart diseases. By cross-analysing genetic information within the family, we can better understand whether a particular genetic variant has any significance.

Some medical conditions can be inherited as a result of changes in genes passed from generation to generation. An abnormal gene can be inherited from either one of our parents and those with genetic syndromes are at greater risk. Breast, colorectal, ovarian, prostate, pancreatic and endometrial cancers that may sometimes run in the family.

PlumCare DNA Advisor is supported by experts in science and medical bioinformatics from Harvard and Yale universities. All analyses will be carried out by US-based laboratories that are certified by the College of American Pathologists ("CAP"), one of the most highly recognised standards for clinical laboratory testing on humans. Genetic counselling will be provided by Human Genetics Society of Australasia ("HGSA") licensed genetic counsellors based in Asia.

A whole-exome genetic testing that cross-analyses genetic information within the family to achieve a more definitive insight to help you and your loved ones take steps to delay, manage or even prevent the onset of the condition that you are predisposed to.
