BioCertica is a genetics-based, health company that combines advanced genetic testing with encryption technology to create Africa’s first digital biobank. A secure platform to unlock, interpret and protect your unique genetic information. They understand how limiting a one-size-fits-all approach can be and their range of DNA kits will unlock your body’s hidden story and empower your journey towards a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

Their non-invasive DNA kits are easy to use! Inside the kit, you will find two vials with cotton swabs. Take a cotton swab, rub the inside of one of your cheeks for 45 seconds and seal the vial. Repeat the process with the remaining cotton swab on the inside of your other cheek. That's it! A courier will conveniently collect your DNA sample at your door and you will get your results within 6-8 weeks.


This NEW test will allow you to go beyond what you can learn from your relatives or historical documentation. Studies have shown that certain patterns of genetic variations are often shared among population groups from specific continents, countries and/or regions.

By examining your DNA variations, BioCertica can discover clues about where your ancestors may have come from and provide you with a heritage report that will identify what percentage of your DNA is associated with around 18 populations from around the world. For example, you could be 40% South East Asian: Bengali, 30% Northern European, 20% West African and 10% Finnish.


The Lifestyle DNA kit is an 8-in-1 test that analyses your DNA and reports on your genetic relationship to nutrition, well-being, fitness, weight, skin, mental health, cardiovascular health, and traits.
