Limitations on our services
GeneTelligence provides Personal Medicine ProfileTM report exclusively in English.
The DNA sequence includes a wide range of genes and gene variants related to medicines metabolisation in the human body. The scientists do not have all the answers today – so if new significant findings are found in the future, you may need to submit a new saliva sample. The reason for this is that the lab can only run the sequence for what can be measured today.
