Genetic Testing Tells More Than Just Ancestry

Posted online

Consumer demand for genetic-makeup testing is growing, not only to give clues about the past but also to learn how to improve the future. The CDC has identified that genetic testing has the potential “to help prevent common disease and improve the health of individuals and populations.”


Dynamic DNA Laboratories, owned by Austin O’Reilly, is a genetic testing facility in Springfield, MO, working with individuals and businesses locally, as well as across the U.S. and eight other countries. 


The most well known use of DNA testing is for tracing ancestry and paternity. But the fast emerging use is to develop personalized diet and exercise plans, so individuals can achieve their optimum fitness level. This service is available to companies as part of their wellness plan in addition to individuals motivated to improve their health. 


Dynamic DNA provides the following services: 

• DNA Fitness Testing

• DNA Nutrition Testing

• Personalized Medicine Reporting

• DNA Ancestry Testing

• Paternity Testing

• DNA/Microscopic artwork

• Biomedical research projects (upon request) 


Company Partnerships

Dynamic DNA recently partnered with Prime Trucking and Trinity Healthcare to be a part of Prime’s corporate wellness program for their employees, offering Nutrition and Fitness Panels to their 7,000-plus staff members and truck drivers. 



Local Testing

Most genetic testing services outsource their testing but Dynamic DNA conducts all of its testing in-house at the Springfield laboratory. 

This ensures the integrity of results and affords a quicker turnaround time. Where most labs take months to deliver results, Dynamic DNA provides results in less than two weeks. 


Low Cost Option

 “We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in DNA testing, so our number one goal is to make advanced genetic testing accessible to everyone by keeping our price points at the lowest in the industry,” says Austin O’Reilly, owner and senior scientist. 


Easy-to-Understand Results

Some DNA results can also be a challenge to read, let alone understand. Dynamic DNA removes this hindrance by presenting results in a clean and concise manner, and providing clients direct access to the scientists, genetic consultants or doctors on staff, should they have any questions or concerns. 


“Whether someone is looking to learn more about their health and predispositions, how to improve their performance, what medications work best for them, or where their family came from, we are happy to help,” says O’Reilly. 


Dynamic DNA recently had a peer-reviewed article published in the Journal of Nutrition and Health on research conducted for a local product called Re:iimmune. The company will be featured on “The Doctor Show” on PBS in September.
