Behind the Scene: Lab Processing Overview

The latest science. Genetic results you can trust.

– Our Genetic Health Risks** and Carrier Status** reports meet FDA criteria for being scientifically and clinically valid

– All saliva samples are processed in CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited labs

– Our DNA collection kit is FDA-cleared for use with our Carrier Status Tests

– Our kit is manufactured in accordance with FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice regulations

– Genotyping is a well-established and reliable platform for analyzing DNA

– Our team of scientists and medical experts uses a rigorous process to develop the reports

– Ancestry percentages are derived from our powerful, well-tested system that provides you with ancestry estimates down to the 0.1%

Your privacy is our priority.

You are in control. You choose how your personal genetic information is used and shared.

– We will not share your individual data without your explicit consent

– A federal law (GINA) provides protection from employer and health insurance discrimination based on your genetics

– We do not provide information to law enforcement unless we are required to comply with a valid subpoena or court order

See our full privacy statement for more info.

Security matters.

We have measures in place to prevent unauthorized access and ensure appropriate use of your genetic information.

– Separate databases keep your genetic information decoupled from your personally identifiable information, protecting your identity

– External firewalls restrict unauthorized connections to our databases

– All connections to our website are encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology

**The 23andMe PGS test uses qualitative genotyping to detect clinically relevant variants in the genomic DNA of adults from saliva collected using an FDA-cleared collection device (Oragene·DX model OGD-500.001) for the purpose of reporting and interpreting genetic health risks and reporting carrier status. It is not intended to diagnose any disease. The relevance of each report varies based on ethnicity. Each genetic health risk report describes if a person has variants associated with a higher risk of developing a disease, but does not describe a person’s overall risk of developing the disease. These reports are not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication or how much of a medication you should take. Our carrier status reports can be used to determine carrier status, but cannot determine if you have two copies of any genetic variant. These carrier reports are not intended to tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease in the future or anything about the health of your fetus, or your newborn child’s risk of developing a particular disease later in life. For Gaucher Disease Type 1, we provide a single report that includes information on both carrier status and genetic health risk. The Parkinson’s Disease genetic health risk report (i) is indicated for reporting of the G2019S variant in the LRRK2 gene, and the N370S variant in the GBA gene, (ii) describes if a person has variants associated with an increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, and (iii) is most relevant for people of European, Ashkenazi Jewish, and North African Berber descent.
