About Us.

Here at BioCertica, we translate sophisticated genetic information into actionable results, empowering your journey toward a healthier life! 

Lets start with the Why

BioCertica was born out of a passion for preventative healthcare. 

Here is a story and a welcoming note from our CEO Gert on how BioCertica was established:

I was visiting my childhood friend in the hospital. The room was filled with the heart monitor's eerie sounds and the ventilators' noise pumping air into his lungs. He was losing his battle with cancer. I was suddenly overwhelmed by the unfairness of it all. He had just turned 40, was in the perfect physical condition and had a wife and three beautiful kids who adored him. Heartbroken, I had to leave for an important meeting. My mind was swimming with questions. In today's day and age, there must have been something that someone could do.

A way to help prevent this awful situation? I sat in a room filled with expensive suits and watches, discussing percentages and market fluctuations. I had my dream job and worked hard to get to this pinnacle in my career, but it suddenly felt empty. At that moment, I realized that my friend was not the only one on life support, and I had a choice to make. I could either stay in that empty moment forever and, by all accounts, look happy and successful, or do something to help others like my friend. It took every bit of courage to stand up and take control of my story. I wanted to become part of the difference the world needed, and my choice led me here to the code of life, DNA. The past and future of all humankind. A place where I can be of service and empower others to take charge of their own stories.

Who are we

We are a biotechnology platform that combines advanced genetic testing and encryption technology to unlock, interpret and protect your identity. We do this by giving you unique DNA test results in the palm of your hand through a mobile application. 

Our Vision

At BioCertica we enable you to live your best life by providing wellness advice at the point of purchase. Wellness is a combination of micro-transactions throughout a person's life, and these actions require you to know what to eat, what medication to take, and what exercises to do. BioCertica empowers you to not only dream about wellness but achieve it.

BioCertica uses state-of-the-art Genetic Polygenic Risk Scoring (PRS) methodology to calculate your results; moreover, we are the first in Africa to incorporate this technology to calculate your results. This is in keeping with our commitment to you, where we will always empower you with accurate results and up to date with the latest developments in genetic technology - free of charge.
