Persons who desire to obtain genetic information about themselves (or a dependent) can submit a sample of saliva or blood.
The following information can be derived from whole genome sequencing:
1) Predisposition to disease development
2) Carrier status of conditions that might impact an offspring
3) Pharmacogenomic information (drug response)
4) Hereditary cancer predisposition
Participant(s) receive a digital copy of the entire genome DNA sequenced, and a medical report based on the genome sequence data is delivered to ordering doctor. All tests offered through Merogenomics require a physician to sign a test requisition form.
The client is strongly encouraged to seek genetic counseling prior to genome sequencing and after obtaining results.
Partial genome analysis can also be undertaken to obtain a specific subset of information, such as pharmacogenetic testing.
