iGenix, Inc has launched QTrait, a personal online genetics testing service with prices beginning at $99 per DNA test. iGenix co-founder and chief scientist Tera Eerkes, Ph.D. developed QTrait to create affordable DNA testing for the general public, while providing the secure privacy procedures in the genetics industry. QTrait tests have received certification from TRUSTe, a consumer privacy group that helps consumers and businesses identify trustworthy online organizations.

QTrait test categories include: 1) Health and Longevity; 2) Addictive Tendencies; 3) Nutrition and Allergies; 4) Pregnancy and Childbirth; 5) Sleep and the Senses; and 6) Performance. Tests range from $99 for one test, up to $749 for 30 or more tests.

"QTrait proves that secure DNA testing isn't just for the wealthy," said Eerkes, who has a doctorate in Genome Sciences from the University of Washington. "Anyone should be able to learn about their genetic make-up, and have the right to keep that information 100 percent private."

The Company says that, designed by a team of scientists and physicians, QTrait tests are highly accurate. They differ from tests that evaluate disease detection or prevention. QTrait evaluates the genetic component of existing disorders or conditions that can be improved through detection and behavior modification, like allergies.
