Free genetic testing for mitochondrial disease
Answer our short quiz to see if you qualify for our free, at-home, genetic sequencing test.
The test.
A clinical-grade DNA test delivered right to your door. All it takes is a bit of saliva.
  • Physician-ordered, with a free genetic counseling appointment to go over results
  • CLIA-Certified & CAP-Accredited Lab
  • HIPAA-compliant to protect your data
How it works.
Take our short quiz of your symptoms to see if you’re eligible. All we need is your age, sex, and a few symptoms to see if you're eligible.
If the independent clinicians approve your test order, we'll send a kit right to your door. Collect some saliva and send it back in the pre-paid box.
Receive your results, it's that simple. They will be ready in 6-12 weeks from the time you send us your sample.

About mitochondrial disease.
Mitochondrial diseases occur when mitochondria, the powerhouses of your cells, fail to produce enough energy for the body to function properly.

Mitochondrial disease can affect all parts of the body. Especially those that require a substantial amount of energy to function. 1
