-**FirmaLab** is engaged in clinical testing services ​we combine state-of-the-art genetic testing with comprehensive interpretation of test results. Testing for risk assessment genetic testing, in healthy or apparently healthy people, as a predictive or risk assessment test. Predictive test results do not necessarily mean that the disease will inevitably occur or remain absent; they replace the individual’s prior risks based on population data or family history with risks based on genotype. Some, but not all, predictive genetic testing falls under the rubric “genetic screening,​” a search in a population for persons possessing certain genotypes. FirmaLab views this category of significant value only for appropriately chosen patients. In such cases, FirmaLab subscribes to the policy of “Your Genes, Your Choices”.+**FirmaLab** is engaged in clinical testing services.

 Increasing public awareness of the relationship between genetics and personal health has increased the demand for molecular genetic testing. The utility of molecular genetic testing is imperative in many settings as a preventive test for prenatal, newborn and carrier screening, as well as testing in high-risk families, are included. Tests for metabolites are covered only when they are undertaken with high probability that an excess or deficiency of the metabolite indicates the presence of heritable mutations in single genes.  ​ Increasing public awareness of the relationship between genetics and personal health has increased the demand for molecular genetic testing.
