COVID-19 UPDATE


We are very much open for business, however, COVID -19 affects a number of our business activities.


These are the few areas where our services may be affected: 


  • Longer delivery times for DNA collection kits
  • We may need more time to issue results
  • We may need more time to respond to enquiries and to reply to your emails
  • There will be delays in sending out update notifications regarding your samples' arrival at our Sorting Office - all samples are subject to decontamination via isolation, which may last up to 48 hours. 


We will contact you with your results, when these are ready - there is no need to chase these up. We are working as fast as we can, under these circumstances. 


There may be delays in issuing your tracking numbers but all orders will be fulfilled - please use the tracking number issued, to track your deliveries. 


To help our customers with the financial aspect of obtaining their DNA tests, we have lowered the price by £50. Click here to take advantage of the lower price. 




Thank you for your understanding. 


The LGRC Team




We are committed to answering all of our clients’ enquiries as fast as possible but to save you time we have also listed answers to the most common questions below.

If your enquiry is covered by any of the below answers, we might not reply to you directly.

If your enquiry concerns an existing order, please contact us using the email address associated with your order.

If your enquiry concerns already issued results or an ongoing lab analysis, please make sure to contact us from the email address registered with your sample.

Due to the sensitive nature of the data we provide, we are unable to answer any enquiries originated from email addresses not associated with registered samples.




It's the data issued with your results.

Up until 2 years ago, most direct to consumer genetic test providers, offered content based on the then popular Infinium OmniExpressnchip, manufactured by Illumina.

This chip made it possible to analyse many markers, which were deemed as very useful by the Functional Medicine and Nutrigenomics orientated community.

Unfortunately Illumina stopped providing this chip and instead started offering a more limited option called the Global Screening Array.

While most DNA testing companies settled for this, and tried to make the most out of this limited content, we decided to make sure that the SNPs that were now missing, can be added on to our chip.

We therefore made an extra investment, which allowed us to customise this chip. Having done this, we are now able to issue to our customers raw data files which include the desireble content.

Yes, all we need is some of your saliva. Our collection kits are essentially spit tubes with a liquid buffer added on, to perserve your genetic material. Your DNA will be extracted from white blood cells contained within human saliva.



You will not be able to log in to your account before your results are ready. We will send you an email notification with the link to access your results as soon as they are ready. Please make sure to make a note of your email address and the password you chose when you registered your sample online. Please make sure to allow the full period as indicated in your sample receipt confirmation email, before contacting us about your results.



All samples are destroyed upon succesful analysis.



Absolutely not! Your data will be safely stored on our secure, private server for as long as you wish. You can delete your raw data and reports from this server at any time.
