Genetic testing heralds next generation of diagnostics in NHS

Motherlabs member GENinCode has developed a new DNA test that looks at genetics as a risk factor for heart disease, heralding a new era of diagnostics in the NHS.

“That’s quite a big step change in the way that risk assessment and diagnosis of patients will be delivered moving forward.”
