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 Helix sends you a DNA collection kit to collect a small saliva sample from you, which takes just a few minutes. Helix’s world-class laboratory then uses the most advanced technology to read your DNA—all from that one 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 saliva sample.
Through Helix, you can explore a variety of DNA-powered products that help you discover more about yourself and make better-informed decisions about your life. From the profound to the just-for-fun, there’s a lot to learn about yourself through your DNA.
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.
