This at-home genetic test looks for 83 gene variations that increase your risk of developing heart disease to help guide your personalised prevention and early detection plan.
Screens for 83 cardiac risk genes
||Saliva sample collection|
|Free genetic counselling included|
This test looks for inherited gene variations that increase your risk of developing some of the most common types of heart disease - including arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy, high cholesterol, high blood pressure & thrombophilia.
MYBPC3, MYH7, FHL1
ACVRL1, BMPR2, ENG, GDF2, SERPINC1, SMAD4
High blood pressure
Your test results identify any gene variations found and provide a tailored action plan to reduce your risk or prevent heart disease.
This test is for individuals looking to to be proactive about their long-term health and to personalise their prevention and screening plan.
This test is not meant to diagnose a person with heart disease.
Your sample is processed in a medical laboratory that is NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) and CLIA-certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments).
This means they have to meet high standards to obtain national certifications and submit themselves to regular inspections.
Your saliva sample is destroyed after 30 days. In unusual cases when testing takes longer than 30 days, the specimen will be retained until the report is delivered.
Yes. Even if you don’t have a family history you could still have a genetic risk that increases your own risk. Not everyone who carries an increased risk gene variant will develop heart disease, so not every family will have a history of heart disease.
As a healthcare company, we comply with the most stringent local and international privacy and security regulations. We take incredible care to use technical, process and physical safeguards to secure your personal information and protect it against misuse, loss or alteration.
Finally, Eugene doesn’t share any of your data with anyone but you, the lab, and (with your express permission) your doctor.
Each test comes with a 30 minute consult with a Eugene genetic counsellor to discuss your results with you and customise a prevention and screening plan. If needed, we’ll also provide specialist referrals to support your ongoing care.
You can access our free education tools, sign up for ongoing EugeneCare+ support, or take your results to your GP or specialist for follow ups.
Your prevention and screening plan depends on the gene variations found. Each variation affects your risk differently and so the best approach to prevention and screening can be different.
Our genetic counsellor and physician team reviews your test results and your personal & family history to create tailored screening and prevention measures that you and your doctor can act on.
If needed, we’ll also provide specialist referrals to support your ongoing care.
