qPCR SNP Detection Kit
Analysed genes are responsible for enzymes involved in switching off the activity and degradation of neurotransmitters, e.g. dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine, as well as production of a protein that acts as a receptor for oxytocin. Long-term stress can lead to endocrine disruptions that are harmful to health, and, as a result, to digestive problems, cardiovascular diseases and fertility problems.

Did you know...?
Stress is the body’s response to external and internal stimuli of a threatening nature. Its mechanisms evolved to aid in defense against danger. Although the sources of stress have changed with the development of civilization, the body’s responses have remained the same. The stimuli that trigger stress reactions and the level of stress tolerance vary from person to person. Genes that control the amount of stress hormones produced have a great influence on this differentiation.
Why is it important to know the body’s response to stress?
The effects of long-term stress include fast mood swings, feeling overwhelmed, difficulty concentrating, difficult contact with people, general nervousness, low energy levels, headaches, stomach upset, nausea, muscle aches and tension, chest pain and a fast heartbeat, insomnia, as well as frequent colds and infections.
How the test is performed?
The COMT and OXTR genes are DNA fragments that contain instructions for building proteins that play a role in the body’s response to stress. SNP analysis using our reagents is fast and accurate. Thanks to the IFU instructions included in the kit, the technician can easily interpret the results. The reaction lasts about 2 hours, and the temperature-time profile is selected so that the laboratory can analyze several genes simultaneously using one device. Ready-to-use reagents are included in the kit. It is enough for the lab technician to add each of them in the right proportion and the reaction is ready. Quickly, easily and professionally.
Why is it worth doing a genetic test?
Stress can be caused by any type of physical or emotional stimulus, and it is an individual matter for each person. The most common types of stress are work-related stress, parental stress, and stress related to certain stages of life. What causes stress in one person may not be important to another. Some people are better able to deal with stress than others because they have different levels of sensitivity and are more able to control it during stressful times. Knowing their genotype, the client will be able to make decisions to improve the quality of their health and well-being.
What can be done after the test result?
A professional approach to the client will inspire his trust and ignite the desire to learn about other genes. Without the need for sequencing, you can access information about many DNA fragments that affect key parameters of our lives.
