What happens to my DNA after the test?Updated 6 months ago

Our laboratory will process your sample using barcode identification. They will not hold any personal information about you. Once processed your sample is destroyed by incineration after 1 month and the extracted DNA is destroyed by incineration after 6 months as per laboratory regulatory standards.

Your pseudonymised DNA sample sequencing data is maintained for the length of your contract with us. This may be used if we update our reports. It will be destroyed within 60 days after the contract
