1. Order a product
Order your first product on the Helix Store and we’ll send you a Helix DNA kit. The kit has everything you need to provide a small saliva sample, including a prepaid shipping box to send your sample to our lab. After Helix sequences your DNA, you will unlock a variety of products covering many avenues of exploration: health, wellness, ancestry, and more.
2. Submit your sample and get sequenced
Once your sample arrives at our lab, we will use next generation Exome+™ sequencing technology to read your DNA. This process sequences a proprietary assay that includes a medical exome as well as a microarray backbone. We then store and protect your DNA data using rigorous security protocols to help keep your information safe and secure.
3. Get your results
Once your DNA is sequenced, you will be notified via email when your results are ready. Then comes the exciting part. You’ll dig into your new insights to find valuable information and actionable insights you can use every day.
4. Discover again and again
When you’re ready to explore further, shop the Helix Store and follow your curiosity wherever it leads. The best part? Helix lives on the cutting edge of genetic science and with future advancements you’ll learn more and more from your DNA for years to come.
From the profound to the just-for-fun, there’s plenty to uncover in your DNA.
