What the minimum age to do a genetic testing?
Genetic testing can be done once a baby is born. Our DNA stays the same throughout our entire lifetime.
How frequent does my child need a genetic test?
You only need to perform a genetic test ONCE in a lifetime.
Do you need to draw blood from my child to do a genetic test?
No, this process does not involve drawing blood. We can obtain your DNA from the buccal epithelial (skin on your inner cheeks) cells and white blood cells found in your saliva.
Do I need to bring my child to Neucleus's office to do the test?
No. Once you've made a purchase, we will courier a cheek cell collection swab and you can collect the cheek cells with video guidance at the comforts of your own home.
Does cheek cell DNA analysis as accurate as blood?
Yes! The DNA in the cheek cell is exactly the same as those found in blood sample.
How long does it take to get report?
The standard report delivery period is within 4-6 weeks. It might take slightly longer under special circumstances such as movement control order (in Malaysia) and circuit breaker (in Singapore).
How do I receive my report?
The report will be emailed to you once it is ready. You may choose the language of the report, Chinese and/or English.
Will anyone explain to me the result of the report?
What should parents do after getting the report?
During our 1-1 consultation, our consultant will strategize developmental plan together iwth parents. We will highlight the stregths and potential weaknesses of the children, and advice the different programs that the child can attend.
