We collaborate with leading genetics experts and internationally accredited laboratories to deliver medical-grade genetic tests and personalised clinical care straight to your doorstep so you can make empowered health choices for you and your family.
Twenty years ago, it cost $2.7 billion to sequence the human genome. Now, the price is closer to $1,000.
We use next-generation sequencing (NGS) - a modern technology used to read human DNA code much faster and cheaper than older methods — reading millions of small pieces of DNA at once.
This has made it easier to understand the link between our genetics and health. We can now use it to identify variations in genes that could lead to a disease so we can prevent health issues before they happen.
How your DNA becomes a report
When it comes to our DNA, human beings are 99.3% the same. That 0.7% is what makes each one of us unique. These differences are called variants.
Variants can be linked to certain health conditions or other traits.
Our internationally certified lab extracts DNA from cells in your saliva sample. Then our lab processes the DNA and reads millions of variants in your genome.
Your genetic data is then analysed, and we generate your personalised reports.
Because it doesn’t involve needles, and you can do it from home!
Your saliva contains DNA from cells in your mouth. We send you a saliva collection kit to provide your sample. The quality of a saliva sample is the same as a blood sample, and it can be transported at room temperature — so all you have to do is drop it in a post box.
Privacy and security
As a healthcare company, we comply with the most stringent local and international privacy and security regulations. We take incredible care to use technical, process and physical safeguards to secure your personal information and protect it against misuse, loss or alteration.
Finally, Eugene doesn’t share any of your data with anyone but you, the lab, and (with your express permission) your doctor.
