Exclusive genomic checkup

We now offer acute blood genetic tests to prevent and manage any risk of illnesses linked to your personal indications and family history.

  • Step 1: Pre-test consultation with our genetic counsellor who will assess the need for a specific genetic analysis upon clinical indication and family history.
  • Step 2: Our specialized physician makes a proposition for a targeted gene panel that will be prescribed upon informed consent.
  • Step 3: A blood sample is collected and sent to the lab in order to perform the corresponding genomic analysis on the extracted germline DNA.
  • Step 4: Release of a comprehensive genetic report, post-test consultation with our genetic counsellor and/or specialized physician for evaluation and appropriate risk-reduction management.

Case example:

The patient has a strong family history of cancer involving breast and colorectal cancer from her maternal side.

During the pre-test consultation, our genetic counsellor makes the assessment that his/her family history is compatible with a hereditary predisposition of cancer.

Our physician prescribes a genetic analysis for a targeted panel including the following genes: APC, BMPR1A, BRCA1, BRCA2, CDH1, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, MUTYH, PALB2, PMS2, PTEN, TP53 which are associated to the hereditary predisposition of breast, ovarian and colorectal cancer.

A pathogenic mutation is found in BRCA1 conferring an 85% risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer, prompting our physician to propose risk-reduction measures including:

  • More frequent cancer surveillance options
  • Prophylactic surgery
  • Treatment guidance
  • Testing of first degree family members

These measures allow an appropriate management ultimately decreasing the initial higher risk of developing a cancer to the average normal risk.

The price will depend on the panel of genetic anaylsis that the patient will be advised to do. It starts from CHF 1500.00.
