At Navigenics, we use the latest genetic science to illuminate the future of your health and arm you with the knowledge to change it for the better.
Thanks to advances in genomic research, medicine and technology, we can now determine your genetic predisposition for certain diseases, perhaps years or decades before they develop. These insights enable you to take action before a disorder strikes to delay or even prevent the illness altogether.
Our laboratory is certified under federal Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) standards. There we screen your whole genome and compare it to the most up-to-date research on the genetic bases of conditions such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease. We then provide you with clinically based knowledge to help you take positive steps to live as long and healthy a life as possible.
We take our responsibilities very seriously:
- We are advised by leading genetic scientists, physicians, genetic counselors, bioethicists, patient advocates, and policy experts to ensure we make the best decisions about our services.
- We are committed to grounding our service in the latest scientific knowledge about genetics, health and disease prevention while presenting information in a highly transparent, personalized and actionable way.
- We protect your personal genetic information, recognizing that it belongs to you and you alone. Should you decide you want to share your information with a health-care professional, we make it easy to do so.
In short, Navigenics brings genetics out of the lab to help you live a longer, healthier life.
