December 2013: Pending an FDA decision, 23andMe no longer offers new customers access to health reports. Customers who received their health information prior to November 22, 2013 will still be able to see their health reports, but those who purchased after that time will only receive their ancestry information as well as access to their uninterpreted raw data. These new customers may receive health reports in the future dependent on FDA marketing authorization.
You can give the 23andMe Personal Genome Service as a gift.
From our online store, be sure to use your email address and phone number when ordering, as we send an order confirmation email directly after the order is complete and will use the phone number you provide to contact you in case of shipping problems. The online store offers the ability to enter separate billing and shipping addresses, so you have the option to send the kit directly to the gift recipient if you wish. You can also include a gift message with your shipment, which will be printed on the order packing slip. The order price will not appear.
Instructions regarding the sample collection process, 23andMe account creation, and prepaid return shipping will be included in the kit. Note that each kit recipient will need to submit their saliva sample within 12 months of your purchase date.
