Making use of SomaLogic’s technology, which measures approximately 7,000 types of proteins at once, this is the first test in Japan. In order to clarify the relationship between diseases such as myocardial infarction and stroke and blood proteins, we are utilizing domestic and overseas research data with the cooperation of experts in a wide range of fields. By comprehensively evaluating multiple proteins, it is possible to visualize the “current” and “future” health conditions and the risk of contracting diseases, which could not be understood by simply evaluating each protein individually. We provide it through * Fornes Visualus is the first and only inspection in Japan that utilizes SomaLogic’s analysis technology. * This test can be used by
individuals who visit a medical institution. The test results are provided to the individual as the medical care of the doctor at the medical institution. * The results of this test cannot be used for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, etc. of any disease without the judgment of a doctor. Please consult with a doctor at a medical institution and use it to improve your health. * This test does not guarantee the accuracy of the results or the provision of results equivalent to those of other test methods. *Disease prediction is intended to assess the risk of developing a disease in the future, and not to determine the current prevalence of a disease. *Test results for future disease prediction do not predict lifetime risk. * There is no specified time for blood collection or dietary restrictions.
