Italian biotech company, Dante Labs has developed the first DNA tests available in Europe, which will allow the public to test their health and wellbeing from the comfort of their own homes.
The test is non-invasive, requiring a saliva sample, which can be collected using the kit at home and shipped back to Dante Labs for free. Customers can expect their test results within 3 weeks and can make sense of them using personalized online reports, which provide more information about topics including the risk of heart attacks, muscle fatigue, digestion, blood and the side effects of different drugs.
The company uses Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology, which is a very powerful genetic testing tool. It allows an individual’s genome to be quickly and cheaply interpreted, and it has revolutionized healthcare, enabling personalized medicine.
This sort of technology is already available in the US but can be very expensive, particularly due to high shipping costs. Dante Labs looks to overcome this by bringing high-quality technology to the European market, without the frightening costs.
The biotech company wants to develop accessible genomic testing, giving people the knowledge and information they need to live long, healthy lives.
