With an aging population and an increasing need for care, it is important to relieve the pressure on care. If doctors can spend more time treating patients than examining those who have the correct diagnosis, the care will be more effective. With Dynamic Code self-sampling based on DNA technology, safe diagnoses can be made in a safe home environment and so patients receive faster and safer care based on correct diagnosis.
Dynamic code tests with self-sampling mean that the patient takes the sample himself in a safe environment and then submits it for laboratory analysis. In the test answer delivered online, the patient is always given a chance to click and get diagnosis and treatment from the doctor. This is solved by Dynamic Code in collaboration with various digital caregivers to provide a complete result, not just a test.
The joint evaluation of test results from the laboratory and video counseling means that many diagnoses can be made with certainty.
We see limitations in digital care as it can be difficult to make a diagnosis without physically meeting the patient. This is where we see that our products can play a very important role. By combining tests and digital counseling, it is possible to make reliable diagnostics remotely, adding value to the individual, care and society as a whole because qualified primary care personnel can dedicate their time to those who really need help, says Louise Naylin, CEO.
What lies behind this concept is founder Anne Kihlgren’s work with DNA technology. During her tenure at the National Forensic Center, she was able to see the possibilities with the precision offered by technology and the potential for making care more efficient. Today, tests from Dynamic Code are sold and distributed directly to consumers through their e-commerce, in pharmacies either online or physically and through collaboration with digital healthcare providers who prescribe tests to be able to make reliable diagnoses.
With our technology, we are looking for DNA in a bacterium, virus, or fungus. It can then be said with certainty that the presence of bacteria, viruses or fungi can cause infections in an individual. Technology and the opportunity to take tests at home add significant value to society as a whole when it is simplified to the individual and enables healthcare to focus its resources on more advanced things, Louise Nyellin says.
Self-sampling based on DNA technology can help diagnose common infections such as sexually transmitted infections, bacterial vaginosis and strep throat. Even intolerances such as gluten and lactose can be detected through self-sampling of dynamic codes. With regard to gluten intolerance, in conventional care today, it may take several years before a diagnosis is made, as symptoms can spread and test methods are not optimized, but with dynamic codes testing, the patient instead receives an answer within seven days. The current Dynamic Code product suite consists of more than 20 tests and the HPV Test for Women will be launched soon.
How do self-sampling tests differ from self-exams?
The big difference is in security. Louise Nellen explains that you always get a more accurate and reliable answer if something is analyzed with DNA technology in the lab than if rapid tests are done at home.
