What’s in your genes?

You’ve inherited more from your mum and dad than just good looks.

The genes you’ve inherited are responsible for up to 80% of health outcomes relating to your diet, fitness and sleep.

How much of a difference can 0.1% make?

On a genetic level, 99.9% of our genetic makeup is identical.

However, it’s that last tiny 0.1% that determines your eye colour, hair colour, blood type, and how your body reacts to food and exercise. myDNA gives you simple & specific insights into that 0.1%.

Still have questions?

Completing the swab is simple, and can be completed in the safety, comfort, and privacy of your own home in only 1 minute. Once you’ve completed your swab, simply mail it back to our lab for analysis.

It takes our lab 10 – 15 days to process your results and generate/deliver your personalised plans after the swab is received at the lab. The total time it takes from purchasing for your results to be delivered to you varies based on the amount of time it takes for the postage system to deliver you your kit, and then to deliver your swab back to our lab for analysis.

All our kits are simple to complete and follow the same procedure.

Firstly, you’ll need to purchase your own kit online or in a participating pharmacy.

Once you’ve received your kit, be sure not to eat, drink or smoke for at least 30min before swabbing. Your kit will come with a swab (enclosed in a protective pouch), barcode and personal details slip, instructions, and reply-paid envelope.

To collect your DNA, all you’ll need to do is remove the swab from its pouch then swab the inside of your mouth by rubbing the swab over your cheek for 30 seconds on each side of your mouth.

Once you’ve swabbed your mouth, fill out your details on the barcode sheet and attach the sticker onto your swab tube. Be sure to register your barcode in the myDNA Unlocked App or online if it’s a medications kit. Then all that’s left is to place it into the reply-paid envelope and mail it back to our lab for analysis.

Swab, register, send – it’s that easy!

Privacy and security are one of our top concerns at myDNA. We firmly believe your DNA and data are your property. All data, including your DNA results and personal information are stored on highly secure and encrypted servers and are not shared with anyone else.

After completing your swab analysis, your swab will be stored in our secure vault at -84°C to prevent it from spoiling. We keep your sample in case new evidence becomes available and we need to re-run your sample for more analysis in future. However, you are free to request your sample be disposed of at any point. Our lab will securely and safely destroy your sample.

For our analysis, we only examine the genes and markers which are required to deliver our insights and plans. This means your results will not include factors like disease risk and remain anonymous (they cannot be used to personally identify you).
