know your gene, know your self

Swa = Self in Sanskrit || Swagene = “My Gene”

We’re a Genetics and molecular diagnostics laboratory pioneering personalized medicine to transform healthcare

When we fall sick, we wait until it gets unbearable before seeking help, and then we get stuck in clinics and hospitals. Not to mention the money spent on medicine and invasive surgical procedures that all treat the symptoms without curing the cause. Modern science is now showing a better way!

Stop taking non-personalized prescriptions and medicines that will do more harm than good to your body! Stop having unwanted surgeries and procedures!

Start with Personalized or Precision Medicine and only take medicines and undergo procedures that are going to really benefit you. One size does NOT fit all – You are unique and we get it.

We test your genes and identify exactly which medication, surgeries, procedures will help you regain health.

Our tests give you personalized guidance for your medical conditions, diet and lifestyle, beauty and nutrition, fitness and sports. Our customers have together saved millions of dollars in healthcare expenses and lifestyle costs.
