The  DNA test determine the sensitivity to drugs, identify product intolerances and, most interestingly, help determine the child's predisposition to various sports. The genetic passport in our country costs about 600 rubles, which is several times cheaper than abroad.

Passing the DNA test is quite simple and, most importantly, painless. The whole process of creating a document takes about 2-3 weeks.

By the way, not only Belarusians use the services of a biological "passport office". More than three hundred foreigners from 22 countries have already received DNA documents at the Institute of Genetics and Cytology.
