Baby, scientist testing sample and DNA

What is Genetic Testing?

Every parent wants to give their child the best start in life, especially when it comes to their health. Whether you are pregnant or have recently given birth, our genetic testing kits offer the Vision and Outlook you need to prepare for their future.

Genetic testing involves studying a person’s DNA sample to indicate or rule out any genetic differences and abnormalities. By looking at changes in chromosomes, genes or proteins, these tests provide a reliable picture of future health.

Your genetic test options

Our two genetic tests are simple and easy to do. Both the Vision non-invasive prenatal test and Outlook newborn screening test require a small DNA sample. This sample has the power to identify a range of possible genetic disorders and conditions, from lactose intolerance to Down’s syndrome.

To ensure accuracy every time, we use a 24/7 specialist courier to transport all samples to our partner laboratory for processing and analysis.
