What is Healthspan Testing Kit
What is Healthspan?
Healthspan, in partnership with Chrononomics, is S-CELL’s biological aging wellness calculating service. It gives you an accurate glimpse of your future health tracks and tells you how well you are aging using cutting edge technology in the science of epigenetics.
Who is Chronomics?
Chronomics is an epigenetics testing company headquartered in Norwich, England that specializes in providing deep biological data for preventive healthcare.
What does Healthspan do?
Healthspan encourages users to track their health and well being through an online digital platform. You are provided a home saliva test kit, and together with cutting edge technologies like epigenetics research, AI, and next-generation sequencing (NGS), highly accurate results are being produced.
What makes Healthspan different from other health trackers?
Healthspan is S-CELL’s breakthrough development and we are also the first to introduce the test in Asia. Considering the entire DNA testing space, this offers the first repeatable DNA test in the market. It is intensively focused on epigenetics rather than genetic study alone, and the most advanced in the world. It is also currently the only test that uses next-generation sequencing technology.
What is next-generation sequencing?
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a next-level advancement in technology that enables researchers to look into biological systems in a greater capacity than ever before.
What are the epigenetic indicators according to Healthspan?
Biological age, metabolic status, smoke exposure, and alcohol consumption. Further research is ongoing to discover more factors that serve as indicators.
