What is Counsyl?

Counsyl is a DNA testing and genetic counseling service. We're committed to helping you understand your DNA and how it can inform important health decisions. Whether it’s starting a family or evaluating risk for cancer, Counsyl's DNA tests provide you with early awareness about genetic conditions, so you can live informed and prepare for the future.

Every Counsyl test starts with a conversation with your healthcare provider and includes a consultation with a board-certified genetic counselor. Our automated clinical lab enables results delivery at industry-leading speeds and improved cost efficiency.
