Pathway Genomics Corporation, a San Diego-based clinical laboratory that offers genetic testing services internationally, has partnered with Parkway Laboratory Services Ltd, an ancillary service of Parkway Pantai Limited, the largest private healthcare provider in Singapore, and one of the largest private healthcare providers in Asia.
“Our partnership with ParkwayHealth Laboratory is a critical component of this mission, and we are excited to bring our scientifically-advanced testing services to the people of Asia.”
The company's laboratory, ParkwayHealth Laboratory, boasts the widest range of services among the private laboratories in Singapore, and serves the needs of patients at several hospitals as well as physicians who operate within and outside the hospitals' medical centers. Through the partnership, these hospitals and physicians will be able to offer Pathway Fit®, a comprehensive saliva-based nutrigenetic test that reports on a patient's genetic propensity for diet, nutritional needs, metabolic health factors, and food reactions.
"Our mission is to communicate relevant, practical and actionable genetic information to physicians and patients," said Dr. Michael Nova, Pathway Genomics' chief medical officer. "Our partnership with ParkwayHealth Laboratory is a critical component of this mission, and we are excited to bring our scientifically-advanced testing services to the people of Asia."
The Pathway Fit genetic test is supported by scientifically validated genetic testing technologies using clinically relevant markers and assays, and all DNA analysis and interpretation occur in Pathway Genomics' laboratory.
