Unlocking personalised, preventative healthcare
GeneType is transforming healthcare from the one-size-fits-all model to a personalised, preventive approach.
By developing the next generation of integrated predictive genetic testing and assessment tools, we are empowering healthcare professionals and their patients to proactively manage health.
Genetics for Life
GeneType’s mission is simple: to provide personalised, preventative healthcare solutions that may help individuals and their doctors screen and reduce the risk of life-changing serious diseases.
Our publication record reflects the
