Genetic reports.
Backed by science.

Our rigorous quality standards:

  • All saliva samples are processed in CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited labs
  • Genotyping is a well-established and reliable platform for analyzing DNA
  • Our scientists and medical experts use a rigorous process to develop the reports
  • Your personalized reports are based on well-established scientific research
  • Ancestry percentages are derived from our powerful, well-tested system that provides you with ancestry estimates down to the 0.1%

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.
