Abstract (Summary)

In response to the growing need for early disease detection and diagnosis, Mastergene aims to provide genetic testing services ranging from new born screening to diagnostic screening for individuals up to 65 years of age to gain insight into their genetic information & understand their own health & personal information. This information will assist individuals in making treatment decisions for healthy living. Through Indian healthcare market analysis, it is evident that there exists a huge gap between hospitals and patients when it comes to understanding genetic testing and its benefits. Mastergene, with its innovative in-house laboratory, will arise awareness amongst the general population and will facilitate early detection of highly prevalent diseases in the Indian community. As a stand-alone diagnostic laboratory, Mastergene will outsource genetic testing kits from a supplier, send it to its patients on order and obtain patient’s sample in that genetic test kit for testing purposes. In conclusion, Mastergene will bring this enormous breakthrough to diagnose the disease from its root cause rather than symptoms alone.
