More Information

Did you know...?

Folic acid is a key factor, necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous, circulatory and cardiovascular system. This vitamin participates in the metabolism of amino acid and nucleic acid. Folic acid deficiency can result in serious disorders, for example nervous system disorder, megaloblastic anemia, atherosclerosis.

Why is it important to know about folic acid metabolism?

It is especially important for women planning a pregnancy because of its role in neural tube formation in the fetus. Given the significance of folic acid for human health, it is important to maintain an optimal level of this component in our bodies.

How the test is performed?

Mutations in the MTHFR gene have a significant impact on folic acid level in humans. Thanks to our reagents included in the kit, we can quickly and accurately determine the client’s genotype. The results are easy to interpret. In the included IFU, you can compare each curve and draw conclusions. In addition, in order to facilitate the work, we attach abbreviated recommendations corresponding to each genotype. The reagents are ready to use. Each stage of the test is described step by step in the manual. No sequencing is needed.

Why is it worth doing a genetic test?

Based on the test result and the decision matrix in the product IFU, the client will receive precise information about their gene variant and a brief explanation concerning what this variant means. Based on the product IFU the service provider can compile a report with the result and recommendations tailored to the client’s genotype.

What can be done after the test result?

A professional approach to the client will inspire their trust and ignite the desire to learn about other genes. It is worth checking for the presence of various genetic mutations to have a broader view of your health. Without the need for sequencing, you can access information about many DNA fragments that affect key parameters of our lives.
