Test­ing is done in-per­son and by appointment only at the Braam­fontein cen­tre in Jo­han­nes­burg. A saliva swab is taken from the in­side of your cheek. Re­sults take a cou­ple of weeks and are re­ceived via e-mail. Nhls.ac.za; ra­jeshree.ma­habeer@nhls.ac.za


Or­der a kit for US$99 (about R1§400). Fol­low the kit in­struc­tions to spit in the tube pro­vided – all from home – then mail it back in a pre­paid pack­age. Af­ter six to eight weeks, you’ll re­ceive an e-mail to let you know your re­ports are ready in your on­line ac­count. 23andme.com
