Genetic Carrier Screening Test

A Blueprint to a Healthy Future

Linea Vita: A DNA Test that’s Much More than Just Hype

You’ve got the blueprint, we’ve got the expertise.

Your genetic information contains the code for all your characteristics – from eye and hair colour to the number of fingers on your hand, to the good functioning of your body.
Sometimes, inside the milliards of „letters” encoding this information, an error may be hidden, and disease may occur – in you or, if transmitted, in your child, who inherits his/her genes from both his/her parents.

Find out now what you need to know about YOU and improve your future children’s life, your common future. Linea Vita is a comprehensive DNA test that gives you the chance to actively participate in your family’s future health.

Linea Vita is one of the most advanced currently available screening test, applying the latest in
modern biology and medicine, to identify whether changes in your genes – known as variants or
mutations – can lead to certain specific genetic conditions (list of genes/conditions)

Nowadays, genetics seems to apply to everything, everywhere. To uncover one’s ancestry, to predict one’s aptitudes or risks of disease or response to drugs, to diagnose genetic disorders. Linea Vita will not bring you cute answers to impress your friends with your genetic predisposition to have a great memory, to sing like an angel or to compete with the greatest athletes. Linea Vita will provide solid, reliable information regarding your genetic make-up, that may be transmitted to your children, therefore empowering you in making informed choices for the future of your family.
You may be healthy but you can still be a carrier and at risk of passing certain variants to your children. At the same time, knowing your genetic makeup can also help you make health and lifestyle choices to minimize your own risks.
If you’re planning on creating a family and having a child then both you and your partner should get this test done. This is also highly recommended for couples undergoing assisted reproductive procedures (IVF).
