What is an Epigenetic Test?

Epigenetic Biological Age

Learn more about how you’re aging at a cellular level. Designed by scientists from the world’s leading research universities for those who want to learn more about how they are aging at the cellular level.

Collection method - Saliva

All epigenetic analysis starts with the collection of DNA samples. Collect reliable samples with our saliva collection kit.


This test looks at thousands of epigenetic markers along your DNA to estimate your biological age. 

What is an Epigenetic Test?

Your biological age is an estimate of how your body is aging on the inside, as opposed to your chronological age – the number of times you have travelled around the Sun.

Epigenetic biological age changes the way we think about our DNA and gives us a holistic window into how our cells are aging. By testing over time, you can track how your life choices may impact the result of your biological age test.
