How to unlock the secrets hidden within your DNA
All our tests follow a simple process of swabbing, activating your sample, and sending it to our lab for analysis.
1. Purchase your kit
The first step is to purchase your very own test kit.
All our products and services are powered by your DNA. All it takes is a simple, non-invasive cheek swab that you can complete in 1 minute at home.
Purchase a kit online and get your very own Personalised DNA Test shipped right to your door. Or, visit your local pharmacy and ask for myDNA in-store.

2. Swab your cheek
Our DNA tests involve a simple, non-invasive, painless cheek swab. This means you can collect your own sample in the comfort, privacy, and safety of your own home.
All you have to do is run the swab over the inside of your cheeks, for 30 seconds on each side.
3. Activate your sample
Once you’ve completed the swab process, simply follow the instructions provided to register your account and activate your sample.
You will need to create a myDNA account to link your sample to your account. This allows our lab to deliver your results securely. We’ll also ask some basic lifestyle questions such as your age and height to help personalise your recommendations and plans.
After activating your sample, you’ll embark on a journey of educational and motivational content to help prepare you for when your insights arrive. This means that you’ll have everything you need to personalise your daily routine once your insights and plans are ready.
4. DNA Lab Analysis
After activating your account, all that’s left to do is to mail your swab back to our lab. Your kit will come with a reply paid, ready-to-send secure envelope for you to post your sample.
When your sample arrives at our lab, our team of expert clinical staff will analyse your DNA and deliver your results.
Personalised Wellness results are delivered directly into the myDNA Unlocked app where you can access them at home or on the go.
What you unlock
Once our lab finishes analysing your sample, you’ll unlock a world of insight into different aspects of your DNA.
Here’s what you’ll unlock in your first 30 days with a myDNA Personalised Wellness Test Kit:

“I cannot recommend myDNA enough.”
I got my DNA report few years ago and they are always sending me updates. It gives you an insight on how your body works, helps you to understand how you can combat problems that you have, what diet you should be on and so much more. I cannot recommend myDNA enough.
I had a feeling that the meds my daughter had been on since birth weren’t actually working for her and, sure enough, my DNA showed that she over-metabolises this particular medication rendering it pretty much ineffective. We then consulted with her medical team and have since switched her to a different class of meds which has been amazing.
I found myDNA very easy to do, very reasonably priced and the advice I received very accurate. I know now that I’m more suited to eating protein than carbs and it’s really working for me – even the exercise program I have been advised to do.
Your data, your property.
Your DNA should be yours, and only yours.
Privacy is our #1 concern. We firmly believe your DNA should remain your property. Your data is stored on secure, encrypted servers, can’t be used to identify you, will never be shared with third parties without your consent, and has no bearing on insurance policies or premiums.
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.
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!

Our clinical team have a rich history in genetics, bioinformatics, nutrigenomics, and pharmacogenomics. Between them, they have over a century’s worth of combined experience, and have analysed thousands of peer-reviewed and academic papers.
We’ve done extensive research across thousands of peer-reviewed studies, and the evidence suggests your DNA does play a part in how your body responds to foods, exercise, vitamins, medication and more. We have a list of clinical references available here. To ensure only the strongest evidence is used, we use an evidence rating scale based on guidelines set by the Oxford Centre for Evidence Based Medicine.
The myDNA test is not a silver bullet solution to your health and wellness. However, with our DNA insights and plans, you will have everything you need to make sense of your genetics and put you on a path to achieving your goals.
We provide information on a range of commonly prescribed medications and indicate to your nominated healthcare professional whether there is anything additional they should be aware of when prescribing them.
Unfortunately, due to regulations set by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), we are unable to publicly disclose or advertise the exact list of medications covered by testing. Our tests cover certain medications from categories such as mental health, pain, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular medications.
If you are concerned about specific medications, please contact us.
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). None of our testing has any bearing on your insurance and will not be shared with other companies or third parties.
