PlumCare DNA Advisor

Achieving a more definitive insight through the family genetic test.

Proudly brought to you by Genscreen® in partnership with PlumCare, PlumCare DNA Advisor, the first & only family genetic testing, offers a family trio testing for you, your spouse and your biological child. If you have more than one child, you have the option to add on. By cross-analyzing the genetic information within the family, we can better understand whether a particular genetic variant has any significance in your family’s health.

Unlike other genetic testing, PlumCare DNA Advisor uses saliva only and it does not cause any discomfort to your family.

Understanding your DNA for disease prevention and management

You will receive personalised insights to help you understand and address the relationship between genetics and health. These insights can assist you to make informed decisions on your health. Should pathogenic or likely pathogenic conditions be found, a personalised genetic counselling session with one of our certified genetic counsellors will be available to you.

Tested and analyzed entirely by experts in the United States

Your family’s DNA samples will be sequenced by CAP-accredited clinical laboratory in the United States, two of the most highly recognised standards for clinical laboratory testing performed on humans. Through the sequences, identifications of potentially disease-causing mutations are performed using the latest bioinformatics tools.

Expert Report

Test limitations
Variations in DNA capture performance, as well technological limitations with sequencing, may not allow the calling of all variants across all DNA bases in the exome. Actual performance is variable. A negative test does not mean an individual will not get the inherited disease or disorder. Some types of genomic changes will not be detected in this test, including copy number variants, mosaicism and large scale structural variants such as translocations. PlumCare DNA Advisor panel is not a diagnostic test. Users should opt for the test as an informed choice after appropriate pre-test counselling.
