Our lab. CLIA-certified.

Your DNA analysis is performed in US laboratories that are certified to meet CLIA standards—the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988.

A CLIA-certified lab must meet certain quality standards, including qualifications for individuals who perform the test and other standards that ensure the accuracy and reliability of results.

We use leading technology to genotype your DNA—a custom Illumina HumanOmniExpress-24 format chip.

Hi. Still have questions?

Here are just a few of the things people frequently ask about 23andMe.
If you don't see your question here, get in touch with us.

23andMe was founded in 2006 to help people access, understand and benefit from the human genome.

We have more than five million genotyped customers around the world.

In 2015, 23andMe was granted authorization by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the first direct-to-consumer genetic test.

23andMe offers two Personal Genetic Services: Health + Ancestry and Ancestry. Both services require submitting a saliva sample using our saliva collection kit that you send to the lab for analysis.

Our Health + Ancestry Service provides insights on your genetic health risks*, carrier status*, traits, wellness and ancestry. We analyze, compile and distill the information extracted from your DNA into 90+ reports you can access online and share with family and friends. See full list of reports offered.

Our Ancestry Service helps you understand who you are, where your DNA comes from and your family story. We analyze, compile and distill your DNA information into reports on your Ancestry Composition, Maternal & Paternal Haplogroups, Neanderthal Ancestry, Your DNA Family and provide a DNA Relatives tool to enable you to connect with relatives who share similar DNA.

If you have the Health + Ancestry Service you have access to the full 23andMe experience. If you only have the Ancestry Service, you can easily upgrade to the Health + Ancestry Service for $125 which gives you access to all 90+ reports on ancestry, traits and health. You are eligible to upgrade once you have received your Ancestry reports. To upgrade, log in to your 23andMe account and navigate to the Settings page. You will receive immediate access to your new health reports.

23andMe is the first and only genetic service available directly to you that includes reports that meet FDA standards for clinical and scientific validity.

Our rigorous quality standards:

  • Genetic Health Risk* and Carrier Status* reports meet FDA criteria for being scientifically and clinically valid
  • All saliva samples are processed in CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited labs
  • Our DNA collection kit is FDA-cleared for use with our Genetic Health Risk and Carrier Status reports manufactured in accordance with FDA's Good Manufacturing Practice regulations
  • Genotyping is a well-established and reliable platform for analyzing DNA
  • Our team of scientists and medical experts use a rigorous process to develop and design each report, ensuring validity and ease of use
  • Ancestry percentages are derived from our powerful, well-tested system that provides you with ancestry estimates down to the 0.1%

You choose how your genetic information is used and shared with others. We tell you how those choices are implemented and how we collect, use and disclose your information.

  • We will not share your individual-level information with any third party without your explicit consent
  • We support the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) and other similar laws that protect individuals from being discriminated against based on their genetics and will not provide your information or results to employers or health insurance companies
  • We have guidelines and policies in place to protect the personal information of children as well as incapacitated or deceased individuals
  • We do not provide information to law enforcement unless we are required to comply with a valid subpoena or a court-ordered request

*The 23andMe PGS test uses qualitative genotyping to detect select clinically relevant variants in the genomic DNA of adults from saliva for the purpose of reporting and interpreting genetic health risks and reporting carrier status. It is not intended to diagnose any disease. Your ethnicity may affect the relevance of each report and how your genetic health risk results are interpreted. Each genetic health risk report describes if a person has variants associated with a higher risk of developing a disease, but does not describe a person’s overall risk of developing the disease. The test is not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication, how much of a medication you should take, or determine any treatment. Our carrier status reports can be used to determine carrier status, but cannot determine if you have two copies of any genetic variant. These carrier reports are not intended to tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease in the future, the health of your fetus, or your newborn child's risk of developing a particular disease later in life. For certain conditions, we provide a single report that includes information on both carrier status and genetic health risk. Warnings & Limitations: The 23andMe PGS Genetic Health Risk Report for BRCA1/BRCA2 (Selected Variants) is indicated for reporting of the 185delAG and 5382insC variants in the BRCA1 gene and the 6174delT variant in the BRCA2 gene. The report describes if a woman is at increased risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer, and if a man is at increased risk of developing breast cancer or may be at increased risk of developing prostate cancer. The three variants included in this report are most common in people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent and do not represent the majority of BRCA1/BRCA2 variants in the general population. This report does not include variants in other genes linked to hereditary cancers and the absence of variants included in this report does not rule out the presence of other genetic variants that may impact cancer risk. The PGS test is not a substitute for visits to a healthcare professional for recommended screenings or appropriate follow-up. Results should be confirmed in a clinical setting before taking any medical action. For important information and limitations regarding each genetic health risk and carrier status report, visit 23andme.com/test-info/
