Multi Test (Practitioners) - geneType

Know their disease risk. To reduce their risk.

Know their disease risk now so you can optimise their screening and risk-reduction strategies.

Give your patients a broad and accurate risk assessment with geneType Multi Test

The geneType Multi Suite of tests integrates your patient’s clinical, family, and genetic information to provide one or more risk scores, an interpretation of the results, and potential strategies to reduce your risk and promote healthy practices.

Proactive healthcare

A general health check is an opportunity to consider your patient’s ongoing health and motivate them to maintain healthy lifestyle and screening practices.

According to the RACGP, prevention and health promotion are key roles of GPs.1 Through a range of strategies, GPs can influence patients to:1

  • Understand the factors that influence health across their lifespan
  • Improve their lifestyle (e.g. smoking cessation, improved nutrition, reducing alcohol consumption, increased physical activity)
  • Undergo risk assessments (e.g. for cancer, coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes)
  • Participate in screening (e.g. for breast and colorectal cancers)

Incorporate geneType Multi Test into your patient’s next general health check

While many risk assessments focus on family history and heritable genetic markers², geneType Multi Test goes beyond this by incorporating clinical, familial and genetic factors that affect disease risk.

Your patient’s risk assessment can then be used to develop a personalised, preventative health plan that includes screening, risk-reducing medication and/or lifestyle interventions. 

Using geneType is simple

Step 1

Request to have geneType collection kits on hand in your office

Step 2

Complete the test requisition process, collect a patient’s saliva specimen in the tube provided, and return the sample to geneType

Step 3

We will notify you when your patient’s results are ready

One test report with actionable insights.

GeneType Multi suite of reports reflect the tests that you requested on your patient’s clinical questionnaire. Reports are structured to make the results easy to interpret and communicate to your patients.

Reports include:

  • A snapshot of your patient’s 5-year and lifetime-risk scores
  • Interpretation of what their risk scores mean in the context of your local guidelines
  • Polygenic risk score accounting for the additional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that may influence their breast cancer disease risk
  • Information about managing breast cancer risk factors
  • The types of screening and interventions that may be relevant to your patient’s risk category
