Terms & Conditions

Before submitting your DNA sample for testing you agree and consent to the following:

- The details of my healthcare professional have been provided in order for myDNA to commence analysis and produce my report(s).
- myDNA will extract my DNA from the sample (a cell check swab) provided to perform genetic testing. In some cases, an additional sample may be required if the volume or quality of the sample is not adequate.
- myDNA will confidentially disclose the results of the test(s) I have requested to my authorised healthcare professional.
- myDNA will securely store my DNA sample indefinitely. In the future, when new genetic testing or reporting is available, myDNA may perform additional testing with my consent.
