What genes do our screens cover?
All of our Whole Exome tests include a Pharmagogenomics screen. In addition, our Disease Preventative Screens comprise genes that have been identified as risk genes. The list of genes incorporates recommendations of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG). For all genes of the Disease Prevention Panel, the following holds true: A gene variant can cause a certain disease risk, and if so, there is a therapeutic action to address this risk.

Why test with Akkure
Online DNA tests of the past decade or so tend to only examine and report on a small subset of the points within the genome, while Whole Exome Sequencing looks at the complete DNA contained in all of the 23,000 protein-coding genes.
AKKURE’s medical grade genomic sequencing goes a step further, and even examines areas outside of these regions that have been linked to disease, providing an incredibly detailed and comprehensive picture of your patient’s genetic health.
Our laboratory is certified by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO 15189:2012), whereas the majority of other online DNA tests are not. Essentially, traditional online DNA testing is cheap because it is less sophisticated and not nearly as exhaustive or comprehensive – the technology they use is suitable for producing interesting wellness reports and carrying out superficial genetic studies of popular interest, but not for medical testing.
Testing with AKKURE is the genetic equivalent of a whole body MRI as opposed to an X-ray of a single region.
Finally, along with the whole exome sequencing we also provide in depth pharmacogenomics reporting, which is the examination of an individual’s DNA in order to predict how they will respond to certain medications.
