23andMe DNA Test Kit

What your DNA says about you.

Find out how your genetics relate to things like abnormal blood clotting, cystic fibrosis or response to certain medications. You can also see if your body metabolises 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 or illness.

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.

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.

Advances in genetics that get people talking.
