Life Baby test is performed starting from a buccal swab, from which the baby’s DNA is extracted. Our expert laboratory technicians analyze the baby’s genes for more than 200 conditions by using the advanced NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) technology.
Recommended for parents and pediatrician to know whether to take proactive steps, sooner, to care for baby’s health.
It includes a pharmacogenetic analysis of a child’s response to more than 30 medications that may be prescribed, during childhood, thus allowing a personalize treatment throughout life.
It detects 200+ childhood conditions to give more comprehensive insight into baby’s health.

It utilizes a groundbreaking sequencing technology (NSG), coupled with a leading bioinformatic analysis.
Sensitivity and specificity >99%.
A simple cheek swab is designed for gentle and simple non-invasive sample collection.
