Frequently Asked Questions

Accessing molecular profiling

How can I sign up for Molecular You’s health profiling service?

Sign up here and one of our partner clinics will be in contact with you. If you are a research group and are interested in our molecular profiling services, you can contact us at info@molecularyou.com.

Will Molecular You expand its health profiling service available to areas outside Vancouver?

We are currently planning our expansion across Canada, followed by plans to expand internationally. If you would like to be notified of when new clinics open, you can sign up here.

What tests are conducted?

Our current tests include samples collected from blood and fecal matter. From these samples, we obtain patient molecular information on four “omics”, which include their genetics (genetic profile), blood proteins (protein profile), blood metabolites (metabolite profile), and gut bacterial microbes (microbial profile).

Do I need my doctor’s referral for the test?

No, you do not need a doctor’s referral for a test. To get tested, contact us here and one of our partner clinics will be in touch with you. Your clinic health practitioner will explain the results with you and work on an action plan towards a healthy path.

Can I get these tests done through my family doctor?

Currently, Molecular You’s health profiling service is available through our partner clinics. Sign up here to connect with one of the partner clinics. The health data provided to clients is comprehensive and requires a thorough understanding by practitioners. Our partner clinics have been trained to interpret results and provide a personalized health action plan. Your molecular profile results are not available until a practitioner has reviewed the results and has granted you access after an in-person consultation.

How do I collect my samples and send them in?

Collection of blood and fecal samples are coordinated through the clinics. When you sign up for Molecular You’s service, your clinic will provide you with the necessary instructions for the sample collection process. Your samples will be sent to the Molecular You lab for analysis.

How long will it take for me to get my results back?

Depending on when you arrange a follow up appointment with your health practitioner, results should be ready within 8-12 weeks after your test. In the next few months, it is expected that the turnaround time will be 6-8 weeks.

Can my child take the tests?

Molecular You’s health profiling service is available to people of all ages. Parents/guardians must authorize on behalf of a child to receive the tests and health profiling.

Is my test paid by my health insurance?

No. Molecular You’s health profiling service is not paid by provincial healthcare coverage.
