23andMe custom Illumina Bead Chip

Our technology and standards.

23andMe is a personalised 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 maximise 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 (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments), CAP-accredited (College of American Pathologists) laboratory in the United States.
