What conditions does the PrediSpot test identify?
The PrediSpot test can be used to assess whether a patient is at an increased risk of developing:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Coronary artery disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Heart attack
- Heart disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Sjögren’s syndrome
- Sudden cardiac death
- Systemic lupus erythematosus
- Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
How does the PrediSpot test work?
DNA is isolated from blood or swab sample and used as template in quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) reactions to identify genetic markers, called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with an increased risk of developing serious medical conditions. On the final report, you get information about the outcome of each polymorphisms studied.
What is the scientific basis for the PrediSpot test?
Genetic polymorphisms are associated with susceptibility to different diseases. PrediSpot based on study of specific polymorphisms associated with different diseases.
How are PrediSpot samples analysed?
DNA isolated from blood or swab sample and used as template in qPCR reactions using specific TaqMan Probes, for each polymorphism.
How accurate is the PrediSpot test?
All reactions are performed in triplicate. In addition, positive and appropriate negative controls ensure accurate and reliable results.
What information do I receive from the PrediSpot test?
The final PrediSpot test report provides information on whether scientists have identified any SNPs associated with serious health conditions and details of the testing process, which you can share with your patient.
Does PrediSpot provide essential information for patients?
Using the information from the PrediSpot, individuals are able get information about susceptibility to certain disease and therefore to make better-informed decisions about their health and wellbeing.
How much does the PrediSpot test cost?
The PrediSpot test costs £750.
How long will PrediSpot test results take to process?
Results of the PrediSpot test are processed and returned within 14 days.
What is PaldiSpot and how does it work?
PaLDiSPOT is used for detection and determination of different Borrelia, Babesia and Bartonella genospecies using sensitive molecular biology techniques (quantitative Polymerase Chain Rreaction – qPCR).
