Atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat, can lead to stroke, blood clots and other complications.

Know your risk to reduce your risk.

Be proactive about your risk of atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) can increase your risk of developing blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other complications.

Get ahead of the disease. If you know your risk, you can make proactive changes to prevent AF from occurring.

Manage your risk before you develop AF, or any associated diseases.

Is geneType for Atrial Fibrillation right for you?

GeneType for Atrial Fibrillation is appropriate for:

  • Adults 40-85 years old
  • without a previous diagnosis of AF

Simple, Actionable Results

GeneType reports help you and your health provider translate your personal clinical, family and genetic data into an actionable preventable health plan.

Key features of the report:

  • Your personal 10-year risk score; this is the chance you develop AF over the next 10 years. Your healthcare provider will use your risk score to tailor risk-reducing recommendations for you. 
  • Recommendations based on the latest AAC/AHA guidelines; your healthcare provider will discuss these recommendations with you. 


Sample patient report
The more you know about your risk, the more you can do to try and prevent AF.

Personalized risk score. Personalized health plan. 

Risk reducing options exist for you.

Speak to your healthcare provider today about geneType.

To order online through our patient portal, follow these four simple steps to be connected with a third-party telehealth provider.

Step 1

Depending on the test, you may require access to your medical records (ex. lipid panel or breast density results). 

Payment will be collected at time of registration.

Step 2

Your clinical information will be reviewed by our 3rd party telehealth partner, DNA Visit.

If you qualify for testing, a kit will be shipped to your address on file.

If you do not qualify for testing, you will receive a refund.

Step 3

Complete buccal sample collection as instructed and return in pre-paid envelope.

Do not eat, drink, smoke, vape or chew gum within 30 minutes of collection.

Is this test reimbursed by insurance?

No. At this time geneType is a self-pay test. However, you may use FSA/HSA to pay for the test.

Does this test cover all the atrial fibrillation risk factors?

It is not possible to incorporate all potential risk factors for atrial fibrillation into a single risk prediction model. However, geneType incorporates the most impactful factors. Test results should be interpreted by a health provider in the context of your clinical and family history.

I bought a different test online and it is showing I had a high polygenic risk of atrial fibrillation, should I retest with geneType?


While there are other companies out there that provide random lists of genetic markers that are associated with atrial fibrillation, there are no checks and balances associated with the results they provide. Most of the markers they pull from peer-reviewed publications without cross validating the markers. And more importantly, geneType goes through rigorous statistical validation of the genetic component prior to integrating it into the full model. The fully integrated geneType model is then validated separately.

Are there female-specific risk factors incorporated into this test?

No. Even though AF may present differently in men and women, there are currently no specific risk factors that differ between the two sexes. A woman’s age is incorporated into the model and indirectly accounts for post-menopausal changes associated with increased risk of developing AF. Please make sure you discuss all risk factors with your healthcare providers, including ones that are not in the geneType test.
