Interesting in learning more about your genetics? The deCODEme product analyzes a sample of your DNA for you. You can learn more about your health, as well as your ancestry by using this product. Just purchase a collector kit, use it, and send it off to their CLIA certified lab. Soon, you will be able to view specified information about your health, as well as information about your ancestry.
You can purchase a kit from their online store. The Complete Scan calculates your risk for 47 different conditions, and scans for over a million genetic variants. It will look for cardiovascular conditions, (such as your risk for having a heart attack), cancers (for example lung cancer and breast cancer), as well as many different neurological conditions. It will also trace your ancestry along both your male and female lines, and find out your geographic roots.
When you get your kit, you will get an easy to use buccal DNA collector. Use it to swap a sample of cells from the inside of your cheek. You get two of them in one kit. Each is sealed in a plastic bag, and you need to hold the kit a specific way to use it. There is a video on the website to show you exactly how to use the kit. When finished, put the collectors into two separate DNA envelopes, which are provided. Now, you are ready to send your samples to the lab. The lab is located in Iceland, where the deCODEme headquarters is located.
When your results are ready, you will have an account on the deCODEme website, that you can check to learn about the information that came from your samples. You can test out a demo account to see what that will look like, before you make a purchase. This company analyzes more SNPs, or genetic variants, than any of it's competitors do with their products, which means they can give you more information about your DNA than other companies are able to do.
