How it works
Getting your DNA sequenced is just the first step into the world of DNA learning. With Helix, your genetic information is right at your fingertips and ready to be explored with each new product.
Order a product and we’ll send you a DNA collection kit. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Helix’s world-class laboratory uses the most advanced technology to read your DNA—all from one saliva sample (amazing, right?).
We read your DNA using true next-generation sequencing, which unlocks 100X more data than other companies. Where they do single tests, we assemble, store, and protect your genetic data so you can access and share it with any partner of your choosing without ever having to provide another DNA sample.
Through Helix, you’ll be able to explore a variety of DNA-powered products that help you understand more about yourself and make better-informed decisions about your life. We’re starting by helping you explore your deep ancestry, but you’ll soon be able to learn much more.
The Helix way
Privacy & protection
Your privacy is our number one priority. We pledge to uphold the highest standards of bioethics and maintain rigorous policies and procedures to keep your data safe and secure. We won’t sell, share, or analyze your DNA data without your permission.
We’ve built the most advanced, CLIA-certified genomics lab in the country to deliver the most accurate and secure insights. Our expert teams of PhDs and geneticists review each and every product available through Helix.
Guidance & empathy
We are dedicated to building responsible products with our partners, furthering the understanding of DNA, and creating lasting and meaningful relationships with our customers. These beliefs guide us through all we do.
