Nuffield Health's Pathology Direct Service is proud to introduce high-quality, affordable genetic testing for hereditary conditions including cancer and high cholesterol. Testing is quick and pain free, requiring just a saliva sample.
What does genetic testing involve?
Genetic testing, or screening, analyses small samples of your body's cells to determine if you carry genes that mean you could inherit certain conditions.
Our Pathology Direct Service offers 3 genetic tests that you can conveniently purchase online:
This tests for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations in these genes that increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
30 gene panel
This test analyses 30 genes associated with increased risk to develop breast, ovarian, colorectal, melanoma, pancreatic, prostate, stomach, and uterine cancers.
Genetic cardiac screen
This test analyses 77 genes that can identify the presence or absence of genetic mutations associated with a number of cardiac conditions including; include aortopathies, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies, thrombophilia, and genetic forms of high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Pre and post-test consultation
In line with Nuffield Health’s ethical status, no genetic testing will be performed without a pre-test consultation and a post-test counselling (where necessary) provided by an extensive network of clinical geneticists.
All testing will be performed by color laboratories who are technically advised by Dr Mary-Claire King PhD (discoverer of BRCA1 gene) and advocated in the UK by Professor Gareth Evans (Christies) and Dr Alex Murray (All Wales Clinical Genetics). The referral centre is fully registered and accredited by Health Inspectorate for Wales (Welsh equivalent of Care Quality Commission).
