Making DNA personal

At Xcode, we’re dedicated to making DNA learning accessible and actionable for everyone.

Who We Are

Xcode is a pioneer in personal genomics, specializing in preventative healthcare. We are dedicated to empowering physicians, wellness professionals and individuals with the most validated actionable genomic information, to positively impact health and improve the quality of life

What We Do

Using advances in genomics, informatics, computing, and domain specific knowledge, Xcode is building comprehensive personalized solutions for clients across clinical and non-clinical segments. The genetic tests are performed using saliva screens for presence or absence of these mutations through a technique known as genotyping. In the genetic reports, we present information about your genotype and its associations for specific conditions. The association information has been curated by us from hundreds of scientific publications from India and abroad. The test protocols and the equipment we use are world class, and the procedure and method of testing are as per international standards.
