The Standard Plan has a full risk assessment and includes all the common cancers, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and more. It includes a wide variety of risk factors. Everything except your DNA.

The Advanced Plan includes the most advanced risk assessment in Australia. It has everything from the Standard Plan plus a DNA Test to uncover your genetic risk of major illness.

Your DNA Test also includes your genetic ancestry and 50+ genetic traits.

Definitely. Most people only see a doctor after they get sick. Halogen Health is different. We help you before you get sick. It's designed by a team of specialists to protect your health for as long as possible.

A DNA test is easy and painless.

We send you a saliva collection kit, which you can use at home. Following the instructions, you spit in a tube and post your saliva sample to an Australian lab for analysis. You will receive your results within a few short weeks.
The genetic test can show you a few interesting things by looking closely at your DNA.

Genetic Ancestry: We can compare your DNA to populations from around the world. This shows your genetic ancestry, or how much DNA you have in common with people from around the world.

Genetic Traits: Over 50 reports on your DNA and the influence on various non-medical traits. Reports include things like your hair and skin colour, your metabolism and other factors which are influenced by your genetics. Of course, your your DNA isn't always the full story and your environment plays a part how you turn out. But the reports can provide an interesting lens into your genetic make up and traits.

We add new reports regularly, as new research is published around the world.
We try to process as quickly as possible, so we aim to have your results in about 2 weeks, but if we're experiencing a busy period, it could take between 4 - 6 weeks. Please be patient and we'll email you as soon as your results are ready.
