Fulgent Genetics

Fulgent Genetics is an accredited US-based laboratory responsible for testing all Jnetics samples. The lab receives, processes and analyses samples, using the most up to date technology to look for mutations in genes associated with disorders that have increased prevalence in the Jewish community. Fulgent then securely reports the results to our dedicated genetic counsellor at North West Thames Regional Genetics who disseminates results to participants.
