List of Helix DNA Tests Offered

None of the links in this blog post are affiliate links. Links to the third party company websites that create apps or programs to analyze your data may have affiliate links on their site, but the link to the different third party companies are NOT affiliate links. I updated the https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/links/ portion of my blog with the below information.

As always, check the price before ordering as the prices below were current as of a the afternoon of July 20, 2018 before this post went live, excluding any sale prices for tests or Helix DNA kits.

Some of the tests only work with iOS devices (Apple devices – iPhones, iPads, etc.) so check before ordering if you don’t have access to an iOS device. For third party tests, you will usually need to sign up on the third party site to access your results. Helix will give you a link on its site that takes you to the third party site.

In general, if the Helix kit isn’t on sale, it’s $80 for an individual kit and $160 if you need two kits (for example, the Baby Glimpse test requires a kit for the mother and a kit for the father so if you need kits for both parents, it’s $160). If you already have a kit or have ordered a kit, then you should click on the checkbox that says I already have or registered my Helix DNA kit. Also, sometimes, a particular test will have a sale on the Helix DNA kit which is typically $20 or $30, but occasionally free. NOTE: the discounted kit price only applies to the test it shows up for. However, once you order the kit, you should be able to do the checkbox saying you have a Helix kit. For example, DNA Passport has the Helix DNA kit on sale (as of July 20, 2018) for $20 instead of the usual $80. If you wanted to order the BabyGlimpse kit (its two kits are also on sale for $100 – you get two kits so it’s $50 each as July 20, 2018), it would be a few cents cheaper to order two DNA Passport tests and Helix DNA kits (one for mother, one for other), then order the BabyGlimpse test, and click on the already have Helix DNA kits for one partner, then click on the new link and say already have a Helix DNA kit; few more steps, but worth saving the extra money). For a few cents less, you get BabyGlimpse and two DNA Passport tests

For any individual, you only need one Helix DNA kit as the company processes the DNA once. If you order additional tests, they take the original DNA results and pull the appropriate parts of the DNA from the original processing to apply to the new test.

Here’s the general Helix list on their website, but you need to click on each item as it doesn’t show the pricing for them on this link: https://www.helix.com/store/all (lists all the DNA related items Helix offers). For simplicity sake, I included a link to the test below and the link to the company for the third party tests.  I try and include any on sale in the monthly DNA Sale post I make for the month.

Ancestry:
Neanderthal by Insitome $29.99 + $80.00 for Helix kit

Discover which of your unique traits may have been inherited from our Neanderthal ancestors—like muscle growth, skin color, and cognitive ability—and why they matter today.

Here are my Neanderthal results from Helix compared to my results from several other companies: https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/neanderthal-dna-comparison-between-three-companies/ It’s really four tests now as I added my Neanderthal results from Geno 2.0 Next.

Geno 2.0 by National Geographic (Nat Geo; link for Nat Geo is to ordering the kit directly from National Geographic) $199.95, sometimes on sale as low as $69.99 + $80.00 for Helix kit, but occasionally Helix DNA kit as low as $30.00 (kit is generally free if you use the National Geographic link to purchase the test, but they often charge more than Helix to offset the kit cost); also check Amazon or National Geographic as they sometimes offer cheaper prices than Helix.

Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed, and learn the details of your ancestral makeup.

Geno 2.0 Next is processed by Helix (spit kit) for U.S. residents and by FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA – cheek swab) for non-U.S. residents. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup results (mtDNA for males and females, and Y-DNA for males). Before National Geographic switched to Helix for U.S. kits, FTDNA processed Geno 2.0 and earlier kits.

You can view my Geno 2.0 Next results at Geno 2.0 Next vs. Geno 2.0 Ethnicity Comparison where I compare Geno 2.0 (FTDNA) and Geno 2.0 Next (Helix).
