If you suffer from clinical symptoms of unknown reason or have a positive family history of any suspected hereditary disease, genomic testing can provide answers and make a precise diagnosis, in order to find certainty and start timely treatment.
With myLifeDNA™, we sequence your entire genomic DNA and interpret selected genes based on your clinical symptoms as well as personal and family medical history. After every analysis, you will receive a detailed report with further information and action points. myLifeDNA™ also includes a subscription to quarterly updates of your results based on most recent scientific knowledge.
More than 500 million people globally are suffering from a genomic disorder. An early diagnosis is critical to bring the most benefit to the quality of life and the overall prognosis of these patients. The difficulty with the large variety of different genomic disorders is that they have overlapping and atypical symptoms.
Finding the correct diagnosis is extremely difficult. Only a genomic test can unravel relevant mutations, also called pathogenic variants, and identify the cause of a disease. The human genome has a length of approximately 3.2 billion nucleotides, i.e. letters. But where would you look when you don’t know which part of your genome could be the cause of your symptoms? The most practicable solution: You directly check the entire genomic information in your cells, is what we call “whole genome”.
Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) is the most modern solution to get our entire genomic information decoded. Arcensus calls its genomic testing exclusively “genomic” because we are one of the few companies globally that is offering solely the medical Whole Genome Sequencing directly to consumers. While the first deciphering of the human genome costed $3 billion, the costs are steadily decreasing due to progressing technologies. Today, we have reached a point where a WGS analysis is becoming affordable.
With myLifeDNA™, Arcensus offers the ideal package for all people that have:
The strength in Arcensus’ approach is the combination of both the Whole Genome Sequencing analysis and the integration of the person’s clinical symptoms together with a life-long partnership.
Today only about 1% of all known mutations can be interpreted correctly and with the highest quality. However, genomics is rapidly evolving with the growing potential to interpret more and more mutations in the future.
This increase in better scientific interpretation of mutations will make it possible to continuously improve the world’s knowledge in describing the clinical consequences of given genomic mutations.
With your subscription to Arcensus services, we will send you an updated report based on newly discovered scientific data and updated interpretation of genomic mutations every three months. This way, your genomic data is continuously checked with the latest clinical research and stays up to date in a rapidly evolving medical field.
First, we need to collect your genomic sample to sequence your genome. If you have already purchased an Arcensus Whole Genome Sequencing product in the past and sent us a sample of your DNA, then you can skip this step and focus on the next:
