A dramatic reduction in genetic testing pricing- Sugargene

Everyone I meet is excited about what we do at mapmygenome and most of them end up doing the Genomepatri test which is very cool. But the voices in the market were tweeting about bringing a disruption in the pricing models to make it affordable for all.

Besides, it was personally bothering me that we couldn’t offer hope and action plans to millions of people.  A healthier life would mean people would be more productive and contribute to overall well being and happiness in the world.  But our costs of running these tests were very high.

My mind came to a screeching halt. I paused and then thought of a quote by Confucious

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.

We found a solution and came up with Sugargene.  Here is the press release. Don’t just read it, act upon it.

Remember, we have 36 products- Some Predictive and others Diagnostics. And yes you can order Genomepatri also
