Our Classic DNA Portrait is an extra special piece of wall art that visually showcases your unique genetic traits for a range of characteristics from eye colour to sporting potential.
Using a sample of your own DNA from a painless cheek swab, we analyse your genetic code using molecular biology lab techniques and take a digital photograph of your UV-illuminated DNA, which is then finished to your specifications.
No computer-generated images, no meaningless abstract pictures - every DNA portrait we create is hand-produced in the lab and accompanied with an explanatory guide and certificate to help you understand what your unique pattern of bands actually means. For a full description of how your image is created, please see our How It Works page.
