To use DNAPassport, please follow these steps:

  1. Purchase DNAPassport on Helix.com.  Your purchase consists of a DNA test kit from Helix, plus the application.  If you've already been sequenced on Helix, you do not need to purchase a new kit.
  2. Register your DNA test kit and submit your sample (not required if you've already used another Helix product).
  3. Download the free DNA Passport app or access the web version.
  4.  Create your DNAPassport account.  Please note that this is separate from your Helix account.
  5. Link your Helix account within the app.  You only need to do this one time.
  6. Access your results!

Important note: to complete this process, you'll create a Helix account and a DNAPassport account.  Then you'll link them in the DNAPassport app - these are 2 separate steps.

Here's a step by step guide:

  1. Purchase DNAPassport on Helix.com.  If you've already had your DNA sequenced on Helix, you do not need a new kit - you can select this option when you complete purchase.
  2. Create your Helix account - this will happen in the process of ordering the product.
  3. Receive your kit in the mail.  
  4. Register your kit: Follow the instructions to register the kit and submit your sample.  If you received the kit as a gift, you'll create your Helix account during this step.
  5. Depending on your device of choice, you can download the free DNAPassport app in the app store or access it on the web.
