Your genetics are safe
with us

Sequenced 100% in the EU on EU machines

We are proud to sequence your DNA at a specialized EU genomics laboratory. Your data is never sent or stored overseas. We take these measures to ensure the privacy and security of your health data.

Blood samples are safely destroyed after testing

Your DNA sample will be safely destroyed within 60 days of being received by the lab, guaranteed.

As an additional measure of privacy and security, we remove your identity from your DNA sample throughout the testing process.

Physician-approved whole-genome test

Maia is HIPAA compliant, GDPR compliant in the EU, CLIA and ISO certified, and CAP accredited. We automatically encrypt all of your data, including your DNA file.

By default, Maia does not share your genetic data — or any protected health information — with any third parties. The only exception is for service providers or businesses that directly assist Maia in delivering your results.

research and changes in your lifestyle.
 
Your data is yours. Whenever
you want, you can download your DNA in
these formats:
FASTQ

The FastQ format is the genome after sequencing has been performed. It represents all the reads.

CRAM

CRAM stands for “Compressed Read Archive Method.” These files compress the DNA sequencing data, making them smaller and easier to store or transfer than other formats like BAM or SAM. Despite the compression, they retain all the essential information needed for analysis.

CRAI

A CRAI file is an index file associated with a CRAM file. It helps in quickly accessing specific parts of the CRAM file without needing to read through the entire file. In simple terms, the CRAI file acts like a table of contents for the CRAM file, making it faster and easier to find and retrieve specific DNA sequence data within the compressed file.

BAM

The corresponding file format for the aligned reads. This can be seen as a “map” of the reads/DNA data in relation to the reference genome they were aligned to. For example one might not have had DNA data enough to cover the whole genome but with the alignment at least the DNA data one had will be mapped according to the reference genome.

VCF

A data file consisting of all the genetic variants the person has. These are not annotated meaning there is no metadata describing all the variants and their effects etc.

TBI

A TBI file is an index file used with a Tabix-indexed genomic data file, such as a VCF (Variant Call Format) file. This index file allows for quick and efficient access to specific regions of the genomic data without having to read through the entire file. In simple terms, a TBI file acts like a table of contents for the genomic data, making it faster and easier to find and retrieve specific genetic information.

FAQs

Who is Maia Genomics?

Our mission is to provide access to affordable whole genome sequencing with understandable reports through the use of AI technology. Maia Genomics was founded by Eren Idil and Jonas Eriksson in Stockholm, Sweden, a global center of innovation.

What does Maia Genomics offer customers?

Maia’s health report gives personalized information about how your unique DNA interacts with your lifestyle to produce certain disease risks. Maia provides insights on rare diseases relating to the heart, cancer, mental health, and more.

What does Maia Genomics offer researchers?

Ongoing research and development efforts in genomics and machine learning will lead to more accurate and efficient whole-genome sequencing technologies. Collaboration between academic research institutions, healthcare providers, and Maia is accelerating the development of whole-genome sequencing solutions and expanding their applications.

How do I collect a sample of my DNA?

For adults, you’ll place your order and receive an email from Maia with order details and shipping information. Once you receive your DNA test kit, you’ll use patient-centered sampling technology to easily sample your blood. The kit comes with everything you need to take a sample, including the lancing device, the sample container, a heat pack, an alcohol swab, and a bandage. The lancing device sticks onto the arm with an adhesive and is peeled off when the sample is collected. As soon as you’re done, you can ship your sample to our lab. 

 

For babies, go to the clinic and have your doctor collect a sample that ca be sent to our labs.

What is The Maia Platform?

The Maia Platform is a space where you can easily access your results. In this app, you will find actionable and deeply insightful information about your unique DNA blueprint. Additionally, you will continue to get more information as more research is done on genetic diseases. 

Will I be able to download my genomic data?

Yes! Users have full control over their genomic data.

How long will it take to receive my results?

On average, you can expect to receive your sample collection kit within one week after ordering. After we receive your sample, your results will be available in an average of 6 weeks.

What is whole genome sequencing?

Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) is a revolutionary technology that has transformed the field of genetics and genomics. It enables Maia to decode your complete genetic blueprint, providing a wealth of information about your DNA, genes, and potential genetic variations. WGS offers an unprecedented opportunity to revolutionize newborn screening. Unlike traditional methods, WGS can comprehensively analyze the entire genetic code of an infant, identifying biomarkers for potential defects and mutations. This enables the early detection of rare and complex genetic conditions that might otherwise go unnoticed.
