Other Services at Viafet
- Ancestry: Ancestral testing through genetics allows you to accurately gain insight into your family's history. Viafet performs ancestry testing through genetic markers of both mother and father, enabling us to more accurately trace your ancestral background.
- Paternity Testing: Viafet can safely perform paternity testing during or after pregnancy to determine if an alleged man is the father of a child. Testing involves collecting and examining the DNA of a small sample of bodily fluid (in the case of completing testing during pregnancy, the sample from the fetus may be obtained through CVS or Amniocentesis) and any alleged fathers.
- Personalized Medicine: Personalized Medicine is a field of preventative genetics that urges individuals to preserve their health by learning about their genetic risk factors earlier in life. Through blood test, Viafet screens your DNA for the presence of 2,205 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and mutations with known association with over 350 medical conditions. The presence of a SNP or mutation in your DNA will not change over the course of your lifetime, making this a once in a lifetime test.
- Genetic Counseling: Viafet has a team of Genetic Counsellors available to assist you through phone or email in the case of any questions or concerns related to your genetic testing.
With locations in the United Arab Emirates (Dubai and Abu Dhabi), Australia, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and more locations coming soon, Viafet's services are available to a wide network of clinicians and patients. If you have any questions related to the tests that Viafet provides, or if you would like to discuss your medical history with a Genetic Counselor, contact Viafet today.
