GeneType to Enter Canadian and New Zealand Markets

CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Genetic Technologies Limited (ASX: GTG; NASDAQ: GENE, “Company”, “GTG”), a global leader in genomics-based tests in health, wellness and serious disease and the parent company of geneType™, today announced the introduction of geneType’s suite of genetic risk assessment tests to Canada and New Zealand. Dovetailing geneType’s recent expansion to the US market under its partnership with health and wellness technology leader Stayhealthy, Inc (“Stayhealthy”), the company is expanding its international presence four-fold in the second quarter of 2024. The geneType risk assessment test distribution in the new territories will be directed by Stayhealthy Canada and Stayhealthy New Zealand, respectively.

The introduction of products to new markets coincides with the company’s recent success in the digital transformation strategy and pilot influencer campaign with Creators Entertainment Group (, which has generated a 500% increase in week over week sales.

“We are anticipating accelerated growth as we enter Canada and New Zealand,” said geneType CEO Simon Morriss. “Coupled with our expansion into new territories, our full-scale marketing efforts have successfully increased consumer awareness and trust that is translating into unprecedented growth.”  

The first geneType assessment for breast cancer was developed in 2022 after 20 years of research stemming from GTG’s significant contributions to the Human Genome Project. The company has since developed a comprehensive suite of innovative tests evaluating genetic and traditional risk for nine specific metabolic, cardiovascular, and oncological diseases covering 70 percent of annual mortality and morbidities: melanoma, breast, ovarian, colorectal, pancreatic and prostate cancer, coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation (AFib), and Type 2 diabetes. Uniquely, the geneType assessment goes a step further to help mitigate risk by delivering actionable recommendations that allow the individual to proactively take control of their health. Clinical-grade assessments for new cancers and chronic conditions are in development. GeneType’s non-invasive, easy-to-use, saliva-based tests are clinically validated and regulatory approved.
