About genetic testing
A gene is a blueprint of a human.
The Human Genome Project has estimated that humans have between 20,000 and 25,000 genes. Genetic testing identifies changes in chromosomes, genes, or proteins. Protein is an important element that makes up all organisms and maintain life. The information needed to create this protein is from the gene itself. Each gene contains four types of bases connected with the DNA. The arrangement of two bases from four types of bases forms various genetic information. The difference in this arrangement (array) leads to the individuals differing from each other.
You can find out various information such as the possible risk of developing an innate constitution or disease.
The results of recent research has shown that some diseases are inherited from parents to children. In addition, the gene influences constitution, the physical features, and the character features such as "obesity type" and “longevity”.
Testing is simple, we just need a saliva sample.
Genetic tests performed at a hospital requires a blood sample. For Genesis Healthcare, a gene sample is collected by obtaining an Intraoral cell. This is done by lightly swabbing the inside of the cheek using a dedicated swab. Another method is to collect saliva via a container. They are both painless and makes getting samples easy. No needle or blood collection is needed.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do genetic tests tell me?
You can find out about your own constitution and the diseases that are likely to occur in the future. After understanding the genetic risks, we can take appropriate precautions early on by reviewing your lifestyle choices.
How do I prioritize my genetic test results in comparsion to my health checks and medical reports?
GeneLife test results are not intended for medical use. Results should not replace any current or previous diagnosis made by a physician. If you have been treated by a doctor or will be treated by a doctor in the future, please give priority to your doctor's guidance.
Will my genetic test results change over time? Do I need to take the test again?
Your DNA will not change during your lifetime (except under extreme circumstances). Thus, you need to only take the test once in your lifetime.
Can I take the test while pregnant?
You can take the test while pregnant. It will not interfere with the results. Your DNA results will not change due to your pregnancy. Also, there is no harm to the child.
How do you preserve or manage personal genetic information and personal information?
We have implemented a thorough system to keep your personal genetic information and personal information is safe. According to regulation in Japan, personal genetic information is managed under the Personal Information protection law. We are a business operator handling personal genetic information, and the handling of personal genetic information and personal information is regulated by guideline from Ministry of Economy, Trade and industry (*1) and complied with the standards from CPIGI, non-profit organization, to ensure the accuracy of personal genetic information, safety management procedure, supervision from operators, and contractors. The customer analysis data is stored for one year from the time of the results delivery, so the results can be viewed at any time during that period. If you request to delete personal genetic information and personal information after the testing, we will follow your request as well.
