The 2 Best DNA Testing Kit Companies of 2020

DNA Testing kits can provide insight into health and family histories. Seeing results (typically several weeks after submitting your test) can be informative, educational, and even fun; beware, however, of the potential risks (emotional, family, legal, etc.).

We’ve analyzed over 20 DNA Testing Kit companies and have chosen 2 that meet the highest standards. While we were hoping more companies would meet the “Gold Standard”, we ultimately decided only 2 companies surpass our “Trust Factor” threshold given the sensitive nature of sharing one’s DNA sample with a service.
