We are excited to welcome new Bio Nebraska member, GenoTypica.
GenoTypica is a direct-to-consumer DNA testing company. The first product that the company has introduced to the market is a personal genetic scan (PG Scan) that looks through a person’s entire genome. Using almost 1.9 million markers, the personal genetic scan focuses on health and wellness related information that is useful to anyone who is interested in knowing about common as well as rare genetic conditions and complex disorders like cancer, heart disease etc. Results from such a scan enable users to make life-style changes, screening decisions and early treatment options in consultation with their doctors and healthcare providers. Unlike other companies in this space, GenoTypica emphasizes complete privacy, ability to request diseases of interest, a one-time fee for all available test results with updates as well as access to all raw data. The future is genomic medicine, and it is already here in Nebraska.
