Mediclinic Precise offers a safe and guided journey into understanding how your genetics can guide current treatments or identify future health risks for you – or your family. Here are our current service offerings:
We offer the most comprehensive ancestry test in Africa, using hundreds of thousands of DNA markers to determine how similar you are to another population group. The Mediclinic Precise Ancestry Test compares your DNA to that of various worldwide populations to determine your ancestry.
If you and your partner are interested in the health of your developing baby during pregnancy, this non-invasive prenatal screening test allows you to identify your baby’s risks for genetic abnormalities using blood taken from the mom. The Panorama Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is the only NIPT that can tell the difference between the mom’s DNA and the baby’s DNA, leading to fewer incorrect results and no foetal sex errors in clinical validation studies. NIPT is a blood test performed during pregnancy that identifies whether your baby has a higher chance of having certain chromosomal conditions, such as Down syndrome. NIPT can also identify your baby’s sex.
Mediclinic will soon offer the Pharmacogenetics (PGx) DNA test that can assist your doctor to minimise the ‘trial and error’ period of medicine treatments, as well as reducing or avoiding any unnecessary side effects. It can also help eliminate the side effects when you are taking many different medicines.
