Here you can find the answers to the most common questions about Sano.
If your query isn’t featured here, or you need more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email or via the chat service.
We make money by providing tools for researchers to analyse anonymous and aggregated data that is provided by Sano users when they choose to participate in research.
We also help researchers to recruit for their research studies and clinical trials based on data that Sano users provide, if they have opted to share it for this purpose. We believe medical research should be transparent, interactive, and beneficial to everyone involved. This is why we always ask for permission and, whenever possible, provide a complete summary of the research findings and offer financial compensation to participants.
In addition to this, we believe that users should share in the value generated from their data, which is why we’re working with researchers to offer paid studies. We ran our first paid study with Owlstone Medical in October 2019.
Your data will never be sold without your permission. We built Sano Genetics because we believe we should not have to choose between data privacy and access to cutting edge research. We don't believe in business models shrouded in secrecy, where users find out their data has been sold on through a national news scandal.
Sano is offering free DNA testing for research participants in a number of condition areas. The best way to ensure you are contacted about the latest opportunities is by signing up to Sano Genetics and keeping your profile up-to-date.
We use industry standard encryption mechanisms both in transit and at rest when dealing with your data.This means that your data is safe and secure, whether or not you choose to share it.
Any information sent between your computer and our servers is encrypted using SSL - you can always check that the padlock icon in your internet browser is present to ensure you are interacting with our site, and not a site trying to impersonate us to steal your data.
We are values driven. We believe any company, but particularly companies specialising in DNA sequencing, should have ethical practices, transparent communication and a business model which is socially responsible.
We also use more advanced DNA sequencing technology (whole exome sequencing and whole genome sequencing) than most other companies, providing much more data and enhancing the quality of insights. We are also committed to keeping you updated on new advances in genomics; by joining Sano you are signing up to a lifetime of new insight.
