At this time we only provide our test through licensed healthcare practitioners based in the United States. We look forward to providing our service in more countries very soon – stay tuned. If you have any questions about whether you are eligible to sell our tests, please send us information about yourself and your practice to network@3X4genetics.com.
Our test kit is a simple and pain-free self-swab to the mouth. A thorough rub with a sterile swab on the inside of each cheek for 60 seconds is all it takes. No spitting or blood draw is required.
Samples take between 3-4 weeks for processing at the lab. We use a CLIA certified laboratory in the USA.
Yes! Feel free to offer the 3X4 test on your website through any existing e-commerce system you have set up. However, you will need to place an order on your 3X4 Practitioner Portal once a patient requests a test via your website.
We highly encourage practitioners to join and ask questions on our 3X4 Community page!
You do not need to be a 3X4 Practitioner to join, so feel free to send this link out to your colleagues.
Data privacy is a top priority for us. We treat your patient’s personal information with the rigor and integrity it deserves, and our practices, procedures, policies, and technology are designed to safeguard your patients’ privacy and health data.
While genetic discrimination is rare, it is both common and understandable to want to know what protections are in place around the use of this type of information. In the United States, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, or GINA, protects all Americans from discrimination on the basis of genetic information when determining eligibility for employment and health insurance. It does not currently extend to life insurance, long-term care insurance, or disability insurance. State-level legislation vary and may provide additional protections.
For more information on GINA, we’ve created this resource: Genetic Information and Discrimination Protections.
- Rooted in science and clinical experience

Our Scientific Advisory Board consists of top physicians, scientists, and experts in Functional Medicine who are closely involved in the advancement of our scientific thinking and help guide the creation of our tests and product development. See who’s on our Science Advisory Board here.
- A whole-body approach to health
Instead of looking at individual gene variants (known as SNPs) in isolation, the 3X4 test uses a systems biology framework to more realistically analyse how genes work together in the body to impact overall health.
- Reports focused on ease and efficiency
The 3X4 Blueprint Report uses infographics, explanations, and highly-actionable recommendations to give both the practitioner and patient a more meaningful understanding of their genetic baseline. Our recommendations are prioritized into the top three nutrition-related suggestions, supplements, and lifestyle changes per the patient’s three most genetically impactful pathways. The report is designed to make it simple to know where to start and how to prioritize meaningful lifestyle changes.
- A partner for practitioners
3X4 Genetics gives practitioners the added value of an online community of like-minded visionary practitioners who collaborate, continually learn, and support one another as they lead their patients into the future of health. 3X4’s network of practitioners get exclusive access to educational workshops and events led by industry thought leaders, while enjoying the benefits of ongoing support from mentors and peers in the community.
