23andMe is a DNA analysis service providing information and tools for individuals to learn about and explore their DNA. We use the Illumina HumanOmniExpress-24 format chip. Our chip consists of a fully custom panel of probes for detecting genetic variations. The selection was made to maximize the number of ancestry features available to customers as well as offer flexibility for future research.
All of the laboratory testing for 23andMe is done in a CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory in the United States.
Your personalized 23andMe web account provides secure and easy access to your information, with multiple levels of encryption and security protocols protecting your personal information.
The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) is U.S. federal legislation that protects Americans from discrimination (in health insurance and employment decisions) on the basis of genetic information.
23andMe returns to OGS a small commission for each kit ordered through the OGS website.
