Other types of tests the company could offer are as follows: Y Chromosome Testing: It determines if two males come from the same paternal line (have a common father or grandfather). Mitochondrial DNA Testing: It determines if two people come from the same maternal line. Sibship Testing: It determines if people are siblings (have the same mother and father).

GENDIA consists of approximately 50 laboratories worldwide, each contributing expertise in their respective disciplines to create a network capable of providing approximately 2,000 different genetic tests. This has provided the company to offer testing services to its customer base in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as increasing its exposure to other markets. The company has a strategic alliance with Australian biotechnology company, Bionomics Limited, for the commercialization of the diagnostic genetic test for the condition Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy in Infancy.

The company’s subsidiary, Phenogen Sciences Inc., markets and distributes the BREVAGen test across the mainland U.S.A.
