Genetic testing is at the forefront of clinical science. As each budding field needs leaders to innovate and educate, Nordic Laboratories and DNAlysis Biotechnology have combined their efforts to revolutionise healthcare, one gene at a time.
Education – Nordic Laboratories
Nordic Laboratories was established in 1998 with the goal to provide patients and practitioners with clear, reliable laboratory test results. Since then, we've become a leading laboratory test distributor. We champion functional medicine principles, and specialise in educating members of the medical field about proven alternatives to the generalised and reactionary healthcare model.
Practitioners are most effective when they are best informed. To this end, Nordic Laboratories offers training and support to both empower practitioners and assist them in the quality care of their patients. For years, Medical Doctors, clinicians, and personal trainers alike have turned to the Nordic team as a center of knowledge and experience.
Using knowledge learned from our courses as support, practitioners can prescribe tests to their patients with the assurance that they fully understand each test's significance. Unlike other genetic testing companies, we require practitioners to complete one of our genetic courses before they can prescribe a DNA Life test. This requirement ensures the proper interpretation and utilisation of results, maintains the integrity of the practice, and equips patients and practitioners with the knowledge needed to set out effective lifestyle changes.
Innovation – DNAlysis
Genetic testing is a scientifically proven field, yet it is also relatively young. Every day new studies reveal fresh insights into genetic dispositions and how these dispositions interact with our lifestyles and environments. Practitioners, personal trainers, and health enthusiasts alike reap the benefits of these tests and the health perspective they offer.
Still, any science needs constant input through research and innovation. Without this input, the treatment is in danger of stagnation—patients and practitioners would be subject to out-of-date methods and results. DNAlysis Biotechnology of South African assumed this innovative role to maintain progress in human genomics.
Founded to bring state-of-the-art molecular technologies to the health and wellness markets, DNAlysis sought to raise the standards of genetic testing with the support of a dedicated team of scientists, expertly trained in human genetics, molecular biology, nutritional genomics (nutrigenomics) and dietetics. But higher standards need an educated market to adopt them. To achieve this goal, DNAlysis teamed with Copenhagen-based Nordic Laboratories to help educate both patients and practitioners on the value of genetic testing.
Collaboration – DNA Life
Collaborating with a shared vision for the future, Nordic Laboratories and DNAlysis Biotechnology created DNA Life, a global provider of genetic testing, innovation and education. DNA Life offers a triad of tests specialising in health, diet, and exercise. The tests analyse 26, 13, and 19 genes respectively—each scientifically established as playing a role in general health, nutrition, and fitness potential. With the insight of these tests and their proven professional experience, practitioners can personalise treatment, dietary interventions, and training regimes for patients and clients.
