Order your DNA Test kit
When you receive your kit, just spit in the tube and send it back in the original box, which already includes prepaid postage. We’ll do the rest, like making sure the sample is valid, checking 660,000 polymorphisms (gene variants) and interpreting the data. To see your results, simply log on to your personal account.
1 - Order the DNA Test online
Your information is safe with us
2 - Register your kit immediately upon reception
First go to https://www.ombucha.co.uk/activate-your-kit and register your personal account. In the account you should register the barcode that is located on the container, which is inside the box.
Please remember that, if you do not register this barcode, we will not be able to give you access to your results.
3 - Spit in the tube
Read the instructions carefully, spit in the tube up to the line, then place your sample back in the original box.
Don’t forget to read the instructions carefully. If not, you might accidentally contaminate your sample with things like chewing gum, food or cigarette smoke.
4 - Return the kit by post
Seal the box with your sample inside and return it by mail.
The original box already includes prepaid postage, so you just have to drop it in your nearest postbox and we will handle the rest.
5 - We analyse your DNA
Your sample is analysed in the lab using Illumina technology. DNA is extracted from your saliva and specific fragments are studied.
It may take 4–8 weeks before your results are available on your personal account. Every sample is analysed on a case-by-case basis and we will notify you personally if there are any changes to this timeframe.
6 - Interpreting data
We use algorithms based on published scientific research to analyse your DNA and establish personalised lifestyle recommendations.
7 - Get the results
The results of your test will be added to your personal account. This process usually takes up to 8 weeks. You will be notified by email as soon as the results are ready.
