So, you’ve developed a genetic test that you’d like to sell directly to the public in the U.S., and you’ve read Part 1 of this two-part series—then you are ready to get some insider tips from a genetic test FDA expert on how to navigate the 510(k) process for your...

Welcome to The Launchpad, SoundRocket’s blog, where we share our insights and musings on the science of doing science (well), #soundscience.
So, you’ve developed a genetic test that you’d like to sell directly to the public in the U.S.—from a regulatory perspective, what do you need to know? To start, some genetic tests require U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) review before being marketed...
Based on a 2020 survey by dating app Plenty of Fish, 90% of US-based daters feel chemistry, not attractiveness, is the key to a lasting successful relationship. Genetic matchmaking sites that offer DNA testing to predict biological compatibility (i.e.: chemistry) couldn’t agree more.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we are taking a peek at these direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic tests and the science behind DNA–based dating . . .
When I am asked often what I do for a living – a recent story I get to say is “We watch people spit, and then ask them about their experience.” That usually draws a raised eyebrow, and often silence as the recipient of that nugget decides how to rearrange those words into something that makes more sense. Generally, they don’t get there without help.
Gathering data for direct-to-consumer personal genomic testing made easier with SoundRocket as data collection partner
This was the first experience for any researchers to look closely at the impact of personal genetic testing reports – to see how users understood them and made use of the results they provide. Soundrocket was happy to play a role in this important research.
