No, it's really easy and painless to do. You just collect some saliva with a cotton swab on the inside of your cheek.
For the best results, it is highly recommended not to eat, drink (except water), smoke or chew gum during 30 minutes before collecting saliva.
When the DNA kit arrives just read the instructions carefully before taking your sample.
The box in which the kit was sent shows a QR code and a link to dna.4gold.eu . Scan the QR-code with your smartphone or surf to the website. Fill in the requested details to register your kit. After registration, you will be redirected to the instructions to successfully take your saliva sample. After you have successfully completed the registration and collection of the sample, you need to return the DNA kit.
Send us an email at DNA@4gold.eu and we will try to locate your sample. There are no guarantees that we can find your sample and link it to you with enough certainty. When not 100% sure, you will have to ask for a new DNA sample kit.
At this time, we can also analyse genetic data files from 23andme. You can find more information on this product page.
No, your DNA is fixed. Only gene expression can change over time. That is why the information in your raw genetic data file is still usable after many years. Keep it at hand if updates are available, because every day new scientific research emerges that provides new insights into genetics and nutrigenetics.
Your raw DNA datafile will be sent to you by email. Once we receive a response that you have received the files correctly, all files of your DNA will be removed. That’ s why it is important that you save the files properly. You can then upload this file in our DNA dashboard at dna.4gold.eu and view your results.
You have full control over your data. So you decide who gets access to it.
At 4Gold, only our specialists have access to your raw data file and DNA reports to check and validate your results.
Yes! We have made a special dashboard for paramedics (doctors, physiotherapists, dietitians, trainers,...). They can create a free account and use the dashboard to securely acces the genetic data of patients (completely GDPR compliant). This way, they can discuss results with them or they can personalize certain services - for example, setting up a diet, interpreting a blood analysis or drawing up a training plan. Would you like to give your doctor, dietitian, trainer access to your data or are you a paramedic who would like to work with us or has questions about this? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After countless years of research, our research team has developed software that solves the main problem of most commercial DNA reports. They do not take into account the interaction between genetic variants. This may seem like a minor problem, but genetic variants can either reinforce or counteract each other. We have developed complicated algorithms to take the interaction between genetic variants into account.
