List of DNA Tests Offered Through Helix

Updated October 1, 2018: added several new DNA tests offered by Helix; double checking to make sure I have all available DNA tests Helix offers. None of the links are affiliate links.

This list was complete as of August 25, 2018, but Helix may add or remove tests over time. I thought about adding prices, usually cost of test + Helix DNA kit if an individual needs one, but the prices for both can change often enough to make it more challenging than it’s worth to daily price check each test. I included direct links to each test and a link to the third party vendor offering it as well as to Amazon if I could find a test on Amazon. For some tests, you will find them on Amazon cheaper at times, but you are also paying for the Helix DNA kit as part of the cost. If an individual already has a Helix DNA kit, they don’t need another one. I started this list as I was working on Congratulations to the Winners of the Helix Tour de France Contest and 25% Discount Code Good Until August 31, 2018. I will eventually work this information into my Links tab (https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/links/) which is undergoing a major make-over.

Tests offered by Helix; most are offered through third party vendors. You may need to sign up on Helix and the third party vendor websites. Note: some of the tests only work with iOS (Apple devices – iPhones, iPads, etc.) so check before ordering. Spit kit.

As always, check the price before ordering since prices can change on a frequent basis.

 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, If you want access to your raw data, Helix will sell it to you for $499.

In general, if you need the Helix DNA kit for an individual and it isn’t on sale, it’s $80 for an individual kit on top of whatever test you order. 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, but once you order the kit for a person, you should be able to do the checkbox saying you have a Helix DNA kit. Helix  processes the DNA once, but only provides the information for the test(s) you ordered. If you order additional tests at a later date, they take the original DNA raw data results and pull the appropriate parts of the DNA from the original processing to apply to the new test.

Helix Tests Offered:

For simplicity sake, I included a Helix link to each test below and the link to the company for the third party tests; also included Amazon links (not affiliate links) when I found them for a test. I try and include any of the Helix DNA tests on sale in the current monthly DNA Sale post I make each month and I make the post sticky. You can find the full Helix list at : https://www.helix.com/store/all (lists all the DNA related items Helix offers).

Ancestry:
Neanderthal: Neanderthal by Insitome check the link for the current cost; on Amazon.

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 Next: Geno 2.0 Next 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 DNA kit with one time where they lowered it to $49.99, but occasionally Helix DNA kit as low as $30.00 or sometimes free (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 EBay  as they sometimes offer cheaper prices than Helix. You can also frequently find the Geno 2.0 Next test on GroupOn for $65.00: https://www.groupon.com/deals/n-helix-ancestry-kit.

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 – temporarily unavailable for non-U.S. residents as of late September 2018 (monitoring in case it becomes available again). It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup results (mtDNA for males and females, and Y-DNA for males although the Y-DNA can be a lot deeper than 23andMe’s Y-DNA haplogroup estimate). Before National Geographic switched to Helix for U.S. kits, FTDNA processed Geno 2.0 and earlier kits.
