What is CardiaX

CardiaX is a health analytics tool providing you with your personalized cardio risk profile. It detects and interprets variants known to be associated with increased predispositions to various heart conditions and metabolic responses to certain associated pharmacological agents. The report links the genetic mutations with possible risks associated with heart disease from literature along with risk mitigation choices.

Why Use Cardiax for your patient

CardiaX is the largest collection of genetic mutations that provides potential risks for heart conditions with:

1.) The intended use related to improvement of functions associated with a general state of health, and where it is well understood and accepted that healthy lifestyle choices may play an important role in health outcomes while making reference to diseases or conditions listed below:  
  • Family History
  • Uncontrolled Hypertension
  • You take medications that increase risk for hypertension
  • If you have had any previous cardiac event
  • History of metabolic syndrome
  • Elevated inflammatory markers
 
2.) The intended use related to the role of healthy lifestyle that “may help to reduce the risk of”, or “may help living well with” certain chronic diseases or conditions and where it is well understood and accepted that healthy lifestyle choices may play an important role in health outcomes for a healthy heart  
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Myocardial infarction
  • Ischemic Stroke
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Hypertension
  • Dyslipidemia
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease
  • Obesity
  • Congestive heart failure

Technology

The CardiaX test is a genetic microarray test run on Vibrant’s proprietary technology. Variants are detected using multiple probes to identify the genotype of the user. The DNA extracted from the user sample is amplified and hybridized to the microarray followed by a fluorescent read-out. The platform allows to look at the variants associated with the user buccal or whole blood sample. It provides an opportunity to better understand the genetic risk the individual has towards heart conditions enabling better lifestyle choices.

WORKFLOW

Submit a Vibrant CardiaX requisition form with the users’ address and payment information. Kits will be delivered to the users’ home address in 1-3 days. Upon receipt, samples will be processed and the report will be available online within 7 business days.
