A discount if you buy both together. Helix offers a COVID-19 test. Vitagene offers a COVID-19 test if you qualify. However, you will need to meet the requirements to qualify for the test which aren’t easy. Sequencing.com offers a free Coronavirus Health Assessment and a paid $34/use COVID-19 Severe Outcomes Genetic Analysis. FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) offers a CCR5 test for $39; if you have the mutations, you are a lot less likely to get COVID-19; it’s not a guarantee.
Over 1,300 words. If you are interested in a specific company, scroll down to it and see current price.
As always, check prices before you order! You can also check EBay and Amazon in case you find a lower price there, but make sure it’s for the same company and test. Some of the companies show an end date for their sale prices, but many don’t. Amazon loves to raise and lower prices on DNA tests on a somewhat regular basis, usually every few days for some of the major companies, bit less often for other companies. For EBay and Amazon purchases, always activate the test as soon as you get it to avoid problems.
Update to the last post: Current DNA Sales Current DNA Sales – November 21, 2021. WeGene is supposed to start selling $99.00 DNA kits. I check every few days since at some point I expect to see them offering this price. So far, they haven’t started selling them for $99.00.
