Why Genetic Testing?

Advances in our understanding of DNA, RNA and protein biomarkers have led to the development of genetic tests, molecular diagnostics and companion diagnostics that are changing our understanding and treatment of disease. Genetic testing can be used to:

  • Screen for and diagnose disease
  • Identify carriers for a genetic disease
  • Determine if a patient has an inherited predisposition to a disease

As a healthcare professional, you can use the knowledge gained from genetic testing to educate your patients and take action to potentially reduce their risk of disease, diagnose it earlier or provide more informed and personalized treatment.
