Many genetic testing companies have sprung up in China. They do not only offer serious genetic testing on health, but also, e. g. the probability of appearance of bamboo shoots after a spring rain or a prediction if one’s children are gifted. Prices vary from 100 to 10,000 RMB. 70% of the genetic testing companies have no clinical relevant qualification. As there is a lack of uniform standards for genetic testing, the CFDA and the Ministry of Health are reported to work on new industry standards and rules.
