Genetic Testing for All: QTrait Offers Industry's Least Expensive, Most Secure DNA Tests With TRUSTe Certification
Date:4/24/2008

dard industry tests ranged from $175 per test up to $350,000 to map an individual's entire genome. To help make this type of information more accessible, QTrait offers the market's least expensive pricing, starting at $99.

QTRAIT REFUSES TO DISCLOSE DNA RESULTS TO THIRD PARTIES

People are unaware that many providers of DNA tests have contractual clauses that allow them to sell or release their customers' information to third parties. This raises many ethical concerns as third party organizations can mine DNA data for health, marketing or identity information. A person's DNA never changes. Since genetic information is a unique "fingerprint", once a person is distinguished by genetic information, that person is always potentially identifiable.

Unlike other genetic testing companies, QTrait guarantees its clients' privacy. QTrait does not share genetic information with outside parties, except under court order. After QTrait customers receive their results, they can at anytime delete the information from the QTrait database; thereby, guaranteeing the data will not be available to third parties or unauthorized individuals.

Eerkes explained, "With QTrait, people don't need to worry that we'll release their genetic information to an insurance or pharmaceutical company. Our customers feel safe knowing they have complete control over their DNA information because they can delete their test results whenever they want."

QTRAIT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS

To protect customers' privacy, QTrait encrypts genetic information in the company's databases. Names and account information are anonymized and kept separate from test results. QTrait staff and employees are limited in their access to both test results and clients' personal information. The company also encrypts genetic information when it is transferred through the network into its database.
