What is Thrombo inCode® and how can it help reduce the risk of thrombosis?
- Do you or your family have a history of thrombosis?
- Have you had thrombosis or pulmonary embolism symptoms?
If you answered YES to either of the above questions, you should be aware that there is a 60% likelihood of suffering thrombosis depending on your genetics.
According to the GAIT study, the other 40% of your chances of suffering thrombosis depends on several health-related risk factors including: body mass index (BMI), hypertension, drugs or prolonged immobilization.
The symptoms of thrombosis tend to be swelling, localised warmth, pain and reddening of the affected area, caused by a clot that blocks the blood flow. It tends to occur in the deep veins of the lower limbs and is also known as deep vein thrombosis . The most severe complication of thrombosis is a pulmonary embolism, caused by a clot that affects blood flow in the pulmonary arteries.
By carrying out a thrombophilia study we can help determine whether your genetic profile increases your risk of thrombosis. Two genetic variants are usually studied Factor: V Leiden and Prothrombin, but there are other thrombosis-related genetic variants to take into consideration.
Thrombo inCode® provides a comprehensive assessment of your genetics, to explain whether you are at greater risk of thrombosis.
The Thrombo inCode® genetic test analyzes 12 genetic variants related to hereditary thrombophilia and the risk of thrombosis .
This genetic diagnosis has been proven clinically and scientifically and published broadly in scientific studies. Our test has been implemented in numerous hospitals and laboratories in Europe.
If you or your family have a history of thrombosis, Thrombo inCode® can provide you and your physician with detailed information regarding hereditary thrombophilia to help with prevention, treatment and to reduce your risk of thrombosis .
Carrying Out A Thrombo inCode® Test?
With the help of your physician, you can easily carry out a Thrombo inCode® test, following these steps:
Your physician orders the test and then receives our DNA collection kit
A sample of your blood or saliva (mouth swab) is taken
The sample is analysed in our laboratory
We send the encrypted results to your physician, who will discuss the results and the next steps with you

Their trust is the best guarantee.
Privacy and safety guaranteed
The privacy, confidentiality and security of your data are of the highest priority for GEN inCode. In compliance with the legislation in force, we use all necessary computer security protocols, including encryption, to guarantee the anonymisation and integrity of your health data.
All connections to our SITAB data platform are made under the SSL cryptographic protocol. The use of an anonymous identification code for the comprehensive management of patient samples, from analysis to the issue of the results, enables their traceability in a secure, confidential and 100% reliable way.
Thrombo inCode® is backed by extensive scientific evidence. A sample of the publications:
Scientific validation showing the diagnostic capacity of Thrombo inCode to detect patients with thrombophilia.
Study of cost-effectiveness that shows that Thrombo inCode is the most effective, lowest-cost option compared to current venous thromboembolism risk-evaluation methods.
This study shows that a clinical-genetic score integrating the variants of Thrombo inCode has good predictive capacity to identify patients with a high risk of thrombosis recurrence.
