The Master Health Check (MHC) is a fixed package whereas Apollo Personalised Health Chek™ (APHC) is a customized plan designed based on your requirement as determined by a Doctor. There will be a base profile of tests in APHC and other tests/consults will customize your package.
Your reports will usually be available either on the evening of the check up or on the following day and also will depend on the additional tests/consults which are required to customize your package.

DNA Check is a predictive test and not a diagnostic test. A DNA test will tell us about your risk of having the disease and not whether you have the disease or not.

Basis your genome analysis, the DNA+ test will add to the personalization of your healthcare by complementing your health check.
