Using expert equipment and technology, myDNA are able to conduct a thorough process which gives you an insight into your exercise and nutrition routines that you never knew existed. So what happens? Your samples will arrive by post at the company’s specimen reception and this is where the DNA testing can begin.

These cells are then incubated and broken up further than usual.
