PlumCare Partners With PBKM FamiCord to Offer DNA Testing Service in Poland

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – PlumCare announced today that it has partnered with Polish cord blood stem cell banking firm PBKM FamiCord to provide DNA testing and advisory services in Poland.

Under the terms of the deal, the companies will offer the PlumCare DNA Advisor, a service in which customers provide a saliva sample for whole-exome sequencing and analysis. Customers then receive reports about how to manage their health based on their genetic profiles, as well as access to genetic counselors.

Additional terms were not disclosed.

"The DNA Advisor has a full image of your DNA and reaches out to you every time there's a new breakthrough that could impact your health, explaining it in easy to understand terms," PlumCare Cofounder and CEO Petros Tsipouras said in a statement. "[It helps] guide you and your healthcare provider when needed to manage your family's health."

PlumCare is based in Woodbridge, Conn., but according to its website, it does not accept orders from customers in the US.
