Fulgent Genetics (NASDAQ:FLGT) has announced it has launched Picture Genetics, an at-home genetic testing screening test.

As quoted in the press release:

Picture Genetics will offer three separate consumer-initiated screening tests, which will enable individuals to access Fulgent’s advanced genetic testing and analytics capabilities from the ease and comfort of home at an affordable price point. Picture Genetics offers a holistic approach to at-home genetic screening by including oversight from independent physicians as well as genetic counseling options to complement Fulgent’s comprehensive genetic testing analysis.

The launch of Picture Genetics combines the capabilities and experienced genetic scientists from Fulgent Genetics’ accredited clinical laboratory with the ease and convenience of at-home genetic tests. Customers order test kits online, complete a sample collection at home and return the kits for processing and analysis by Fulgent. Customers receive results that have been reviewed by an independent external physician, as well as genetic counseling support to help them better understand their screening results. Fulgent has partnered with PWNHealth, an independent provider network, for physician review and genetic counseling.

Picture Genetics will offer three distinct at-home test options: Picture Parenting, Picture Newborn, and Picture Wellness. Available today, Picture Parenting is a carrier screening test that gives prospective parents better insight into their status as carriers of variants in 30 different genes which could affect their children. Picture Newborn and Picture Wellness will be available in the coming months and will offer insight into health risks based on genetic markers. All three tests are completed at home without the need for a doctor visit or insurance.
