Home Testing Kits for Predictive Genetic Test in Middle East

Eastern Biotech & Life Sciences became one of the corporate client entities of DuBiotech in November 2005. Its vision is to promote the health of the people of the United Arab Emirates and the region through the introduction of biotechnological products and systems, and through research into the diseases relevant to this region, especially genetic disorders. Eastern Biotech is providing these home testing kits through Genova Diagnostics, USA. According to Pankaj Sohaney, Manager-Marketing and Business Development, these kits are going to help people for their satisfaction and keep themselves aware of any abnormalities about to happen and can be cured on time. These kits are really important for people of Middle East where life style is changing very fast.

The Human Genome Project has made one of the biggest contributions to the medical diagnosis by revealing an individual’s potential susceptibility to specific diseases and analyzing one’s risk to various diseased conditions. The prediction of various diseases is a quite common thing practiced among the people in Europe and USA. Eastern Biotech & Life Sciences introduces, for the first time in the Middle East, the similar highly accurate gene-based “traffic report” called GENOVATIONS which can clearly pinpoint health risks which previously would have been hidden out-of-sight “over the horizon”. With this new information, you and your physician can chart an alternate route, a smart health “detour”, so you can avoid the health conditions you could to encounter otherwise.

Genetic profiling which uncovers potential genetic susceptibility to various diseases like Gastrointestinal, Immunology, Nutritional, Endocrinology and Metabolic assessments. This highly accurate genetic diagnostic testing called Genovations™ can clearly pin-point health risks which previously would have been lurking out-of-sight. This can also be termed as "Advanced Risk Reporting" so that we can travel down life's road more relaxed, and more confident of better health.

None of us are perfect and neither are our genes. Within your genetic makeup, there are slight “variations” called Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (commonly called SNP s, pronounced “snips”). Although they don’t cause disease, SNPs are associated with almost every human disease. The “expression” of one’s genes into an actual disease isn’t inevitable, as many people think. The genomic variations make a person particularly susceptible to a specific type of disease when exposed to certain, often modifiable factors, such as your environment, diet and lifestyle. It isn’t the “fate” of any of your genes (even your SNPs) to express themselves as a disease. It is a combination of both your genes and modifiable environment which are responsible for various diseases which we encounter during our life time. And that’s where Genovations comes to help us. By taking a simple test, it can inform you and your physician of the specific SNPs you have, making it possible to plan a way “around” your potential risk. Since it takes your genes and their “environment” to trigger most disease, you can easily take your personalized “alternate route” to avoid the risks, and enjoy a healthier journey in life.

When conditions “run in families” they often have a genetic component. This test can show what specific genomic factors might pose a potential problem for You. If you learn you have a modifiable genetic variation, Your Family Members can also be tested to see whether they have it. The sooner it’s known, the sooner you and/or they can begin changing course toward a healthier future.

To see if you should be tested for any or all of the health problems, simply call us at +971 4 3692061 or email us at or visit our website to know more about the tests.
