HOW TO DO A GENE TEST

Purchase your gene test kit.

If you are unsure of what gene test is most beneficial for you then you can email or ring the clinic and Annette will contact you.

You can have your DNA sample taken at the clinic or your DNA kit will be couriered to you. Once you have received the kit Annette will contact you to make sure you are clear about the process of collecting the DNA sample.

The kit will be couriered to you at your best delivery address . P O Box numbers are generally not accepted by couriers.

There are two copies of a consent form in the kit which have to be signed. One copy goes with the DNA sample and the other need to be scanned and emailed to the clinic. The DNA Sample cannot be processed without the consent form being signed.The form is self explanatory and ensures you understand what information you will be receiving in the gene reports .

Collect your DNA sample.

This process is a simple Buccal swab. The instructions in the kit are very clear if you are unsure then contact Annette.

Once you have completed the DNA collection it is placed with the other relevant information into the pre paid addressed courier bag and sent to Nutrisearch in Napier. From there it is sent on to Fitgenes in Australia.

Receive your results

Once the DNA test results come back you will be contacted to arrange a time for your consultation to go over the results.
