The Sonic Genetics Process
Genetic testing is an evolving form of medical testing. It is revolutionising how medicine is conceived and delivered, and can give us insights into medical conditions that weren’t previously possible.
Genetic testing involves analysis of the genetic material in our cells. It provides information about the underlying cause or risk of disease that is usually not available from any other test. The result provides you and your doctor with the information you want to make better decisions about your healthcare – and that of your children and other family members.
As with any medical test, it is important that you know what the test is for and what to do with the test result. You need confidence in the quality of the test, and in how you and your doctor can use the test result.
Genetic tests can also raise new issues. The test result may carry implications for both you and for your relatives. This is often a novel aspect of a genetic test. The test may have as much to do about your relatives as it does about you.
The newness of genetic tests, their significance in making important medical decisions, and the impact for your children or relatives emphasise the importance of your usual expectations that a test is accurate, meaningful, and useful.
Sonic Genetics is committed to providing state-of-the-art testing in this continually expanding field of medicine. Through our rigorous evaluation of testing methods, we take the guesswork out of deciding the most appropriate test for a specific condition. We also provide access to rarer tests through our international laboratories, and through our partnerships with leading genetics laboratories around the world.
We take the quality of what we do very seriously. We know that you want the best, and our commitment is to provide you with the best.
We care because we are professionals. We put our training, our resources, our reputation on the line to provide you with the information you need.
We also care because we have been there. We know how important it is to have reliable accurate information for ourselves and our families. The concerns that you may have about infertility, disabilities, risk of disease, and expensive treatments are concerns that we, the people who make up Sonic Genetics, have faced in our own lives.
We understand that patients often want to know as much about genetic testing as their referring doctor. So we provide comprehensive information on our website that clearly outlines the testing purpose, procedure, pricing and turnaround time.
Genetic testing is more than just about getting a result. It’s a multi-layered process that involves choosing the best test, ensuring that the test is performed to our rigorous quality standards, and that doctors can consult with our expert genetic pathologists after receiving the result to ensure that they can advise their patients on the best course of action.
Medical grade decisions that affect your health and the health of your children require medical grade testing. After all, this is important. If a test is worth doing, it is worth doing well.
