Together, we can create a healthier future.

Recent scientific breakthroughs are revolutionizing the way we think about DNA and health. Orig3n is on a mission to turn these discoveries into practical solutions and make them available to you.

A healthier future is no small task. We’re currently working to drive change
on three main fronts:

Empowering you to take charge of your health.

Empowering you to take charge of your health.

We believe everyone should have direct, affordable access to information about their genetics. That’s why we offer a full line of DNA tests that can give you new insight into what makes you unique.

Armed with this information, you can make more educated, proactive lifestyle choices — the foods you eat, the way you exercise, the conversations you have with your healthcare provider — and enhance your ability to both understand and optimize your health.

Advancing a revolution in
regenerative medicine.

Regenerative medicine is an advanced field of medicine in which new cells are generated to help heal and repair damaged organs and tissues. Our research team is actively working to bring these treatments to life and make them available sooner. Tapping into the power of a Nobel-Prize-winning technology, we’re taking ordinary blood cells and transforming them into Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) cells, a special type of cell with remarkable potential for healing, repair, and regrowth.

We believe in the potential of an engaged and connected community.

Orig3n Community

Building a passionate and educated
global community.

We have big dreams at Orig3n — so big, we can’t make them happen alone. That’s why we lean on you for help. Our research into regenerative medicine needs human cell samples — a lot of samples, from lots of different people. So, at events around the world, we set up booths where people can learn about us and donate a little blood to help our research. Today, our cell bank is the world’s largest, representing 90% of the U.S. population — and providing an incredible foundation for the future.

We respect and prioritize your privacy — today, tomorrow, and always.

At Orig3n, your privacy is incredibly important to us. Our users are the sole owners of their genetic information, and you alone have the right to determine how that information is used.

Our work falls into two main areas: our DNA tests and our research into regenerative medicine. Although we collect cell samples for both of these areas, they’re actually completely separate entities — different cells, used in different ways, with different levels of consent.

  • DNA Tests

    After you’ve sent us a sample of your cheek cells, your DNA test results are encrypted and sent directly to you via our secure smartphone and web app. No outside parties see your results besides you.

    We never sell, share, or use your genetic information for any reason. You do have the option of opting in and letting our scientists use your sample for their research, but you are always opted out by default.

  • We never use your cells for our research without your express permission.

  • Regenerative Medicine Research

    When you donate a blood cell sample to us, your sample is included as part of our crowdsourced cell bank.

    Your cells may be used by scientists — both within Orig3n and outside the company — to advance research into generative medicine. By working together, we believe we can make faster and greater progress in creating new cures and treatments.
