Genetic Age Testing
A Window Into Your Longevity.
Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die – a normal biological process.We use SpectraCell’s Telomere Test which can determine the length of a patient’s telomeres in relation to the patient’s age. This test analyzes: Lysis of Cells, DNA Extraction and Amplification.
