Our Science

We use advanced technology available and our high standards ensure that you get the best service possible.

How

Your buccal swab sample is processed in our in-house Synapse Laboratory in Malaysia that adheres to the guidelines of local laboratory quality standards. In here, we extract your DNA content from your buccal cells and detect the expression of thousands of your genes to identify variations that are unique to you.

We utilize precise genotyping technology to identify the variations in your genes, known as variants that are known to be associated with certain traits that may impact your life.

Put machine practice

Why do we not sequence your whole genome? Not all data is informative. Only 8.2% of our DNA is functional. By using the customized Illumina Infinium screening array, we focus on identifying the actually useful variants that have been validated by peer reviewed studies in established databases. The assay is continually being updated to include the relevant newly discovered variants.

The Team

Our team consists of certified pathologists, geneticists and scientists leading our molecular genetics laboratory works. Our experience professionals lead and work closely with our trained laboratory personnel for laboratory benchwork as well as bioinformatics and analytics required to deliver a complete genetic report.

Disclaimer: This report is only based on your genetic information and not on any other information that you have shared. This testing includes variants with proven association with a condition and does not screen for all variants. There may be other associated markers/variants not screened here. The report is not diagnostic in nature and should not be considered as one. What we report here is your genetic predisposition towards any health condition. If you are found to be at high risk for certain health conditions, it does not indicate that you have, or will develop the health condition. On the other hand, if you are found to be at low risk for certain health conditions, it does not indicate that you do not have, or will not develop the health condition. Whether a person develops a health condition or not, it depends on various factors such as genetic predisposition, lifestyle choices, exposure to hazardous material, environment and many more. The report provided here should be able to help you to assess your health status at the genetic level and make the right choices for your health. The genotype determination in this test assumes all DNA samples are diploid. If, by nature, a collected sample has atypical genome content, it may affect the genotype determination, and any predicted risk based on the genotypes. This report is solely based on genetic makeup of the individuals and mutations detected at the time of sample collection. Please consult your doctor before considering the recommendations. The Service Provider will not be held liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, special, punitive, exemplary, or any other damages arising from the use of this service and/or report.
