23andMe DNA Test Kit

What your DNA says about you.

Find out how your genetics relate to things like harmful blood clotting, cystic fibrosis or your genetic weight. You can also see if your body metabolizes caffeine quickly or if you’re likely lactose intolerant. We believe the more you know about your DNA, the more you know about yourself. Learn more →

Keep in mind that many conditions and traits are influenced by multiple factors. Our reports are intended for informational purposes only and do not diagnose disease.

Because genetic information is hereditary, knowing something about your genetics also tells you something about those closely related to you. Your family may or may not want to know this information as well, and relationships with others can be affected by learning about your DNA.

Learn about your privacy and security.

Privacy: your genetic data.

At 23andMe, we believe that individuals should have complete control over their genetic information and how it's shared without the threat of discrimination.

Currently there are no protections for Canadians against discrimination based on their genetics - life insurance companies and employers may request an individual's genetic information or may ask whether an individual has had a genetic test.

We have been supporters of prior legislative efforts in Canada, and in other markets, intended to prevent genetic discrimination and to safeguard individuals' genetic privacy. In the US, specifically, we were active in the development of the Genetic Non-discrimination Act (GINA) enacted in 2008. Similar to the objectives of legislation previously proposed in Canada, the GINA is federal legislation that uses a human rights framework to safeguard individuals' genetic privacy.

Security: your personal information.

23andMe is committed to maintaining the security and confidentiality of your personal information. We've put security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. We use procedural, physical and electronic security methods designed to prevent people who aren't authorized from getting access to this information. Our internal standards of conduct add additional privacy protection. See our Privacy Policy for more information.

23andMe custom Illumina Bead Chip

Our technology and standards.

23andMe is a personalized DNA service providing information and tools for individuals to learn about and explore their DNA. We use the Illumina HumanOmniExpress-24 format chip (shown here). Our chip consists of a fully custom panel of probes for detecting genetic variations selected by our researchers. The selection was made to maximize the number of health and ancestry features available to you, as well as offer flexibility for future research.

All of the laboratory testing for 23andMe is done in a CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory in the United States.
