Genetic Disease Detector

Felda Wellness Cooperation (FWC) has invented ‘IntelliGene’ which is a form of new technology that helps patients access their health records via DNA and blood samples. FWC’s Chief Executive Officer, Mohd Nasir Shafion, says that IntelliGene is able to check and detect 48 diseases that include cancer, diabetes and chronic heart disease using 279 biomarkers. Biomarkers are parts of the DNA that show the cause of a disease or the side effects of medicine and food.
