Prenetics, a global genetic testing and digital health company, announced today the launch of its consumer DNA testing platform Circle to provide a cancer genetic test, as well as diet, nutrition and exercise DNA tests.
The Hong Kong-based start-up has received over US$50 million (HK$390 million) in strategic funding from Alibaba and Ping An Insurance (2318) and other companies.
Danny Yeung, chief executive and co-founder said, the company is in talks with several big local hospitals. He believes most people will have individual genetic test profiles in the next five years, although many people do not know that genetic tests are so simple.
