First and foremost, we only provide information about conditions and personal traits if it has been scientifically demonstrated in a convincing way that a genetic link exists. This sets us apart from other providers, who sometimes also provide information about conditions for which this link is less certain.
Secondly, we also include information about your sensitivity to the active substances in drugs in your gene passport – a so-called pharmacogenetic passport.
Thirdly, we believe it is important that the information we provide actually helps you live a better life. We make sure that is the case by translating known information on prevention into personal lifestyle priorities. As a result, you can immediately see where you can achieve the greatest benefits in the easiest way.
Lastly, via the iGene message service you receive a practical tip or reminder every week, based on your general lifestyle advice. By dosing information in this way and presenting it attractively, we make it much more likely that you will actually put it to use.
As far as we know, a service like this made up of 4 different components (personal gene passport, tailored lifestyle advice, practical tips via a message service) is unique in the world.
