Like most DNA test kits, users only need to collect a cheek swab sample from the inside of the mouth. The swab should dry for about a minute before placing it inside the DNA sample envelope. Next, you will need to seal the envelope. Their envelopes already come prepaid so all you have to do is mail and wait for the results to come in! Toolbox Genomics takes just a few weeks before they send a personalized health plan by email based on your genetic makeup.
When the test results arrive, customers get a unique plan tailored to their genetic makeup. In this way, someone can develop a lifestyle that works best for them. After sending a swab sample, Toolbox Genomics takes about three weeks to send the customized plan.
