Once your appointment is done, based on your examination and lab tests, a specific set of tests are ordered by the doctor. The blood sample for the test is collected in our clinic by our experienced technician.
2. Sample processing
The blood sample is then taken to our lab. Our genomics lab is handled by a trained researcher, who then carefully prepares your sample for sequencing. It has multiple steps which include sample prep, cluster generation and finally sequencing. For those of you who like visuals, here is an interesting video from Illumina on how sequencing is done.
Once the sample is sequenced by the Next Gen sequencer, the data then goes on to a secure server. Here, it is analyzed by our expert team by putting it through a proprietary pipeline of software. The out put data is then cross checked by looking up genomic literature worldwide and a preliminary report is generated.
4. Clinicians review
The preliminary report is then analyzed by the doctor, keeping in mind your current medical profile and latest medical guidelines. The final report then generated is discussed with you at your follow up appointment.
This final report helps in – Curating a precise diet and lifestyle regimen – Precautions to be taken for high risk individuals – Changing medication regimen for maximum benefit with minimal to no side effects.
