AOR’s ground-breaking MyBlueprint is a DNA-based Nutrition and Lifestyle Report that uses cutting-edge technology to identify your unique genetic variations.
Your report will be unique to you. Although other genetic testing companies provide lifestyle testing, the AOR MyBlueprint Advantage is that we don’t stop there – your report includes a personalized action plan and recommendations for research-backed supplements to help you take the next steps in reaching your optimal health.
We understand that this information is complex and that scientific jargon can be hard to comprehend, so unlike others, we present our results in a format that is as straight-forward, engaging and completely clear, so you can understand and get the most from your results.
Nutrigenomics is the scientific study of the interaction between nutrition and genes, and it’s transforming how we understand many of the processes in our bodies, from metabolism to food sensitivities to hormone health.
With our DNA-based nutrition and lifestyle report, you can find out what you need to take your health to the next level. For over 27 years, AOR has been bridging the gap between scientific research and your health with innovative products, and MyBlueprint™ is no exception. Our team of clinicians and genetic experts have carried out extensive literature reviews, amassing the best and most up-to-date research in the field of genomics. We’ll help you develop a diet, lifestyle, and supplementation regimen that’s right for your DNA blueprint based on your results in the above areas.
For almost 30 years, this family company, founded by Dr. Traj Nibber, has led the industry in bringing new ingredients, formulations, and delivery systems to market. AOR's targeted approach to designing supplements: the right ingredients, at the right dose, at the right time, and in the right form has led to thousands of healthy, happy customers and to successful clinical trial partnerships with universities around the world.

Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. AOR pledges to never sell or disclose your personal information or DNA sample results to any unauthorized third party. By taking this test, you authorize our laboratory partners to access your personal information and sample results only for the purposes of doing the MyBlueprint™ test. Your personal information and DNA sample results are protected with the highest standard of security and encryption.
• User information and test result databases are stored separately.
• Encrypted log-in, set by customers directly.
• Samples and data are destroyed after 6 months.
How Does It Work?
Just take a swab from the inside of your mouth following the simple instructions in the MyBlueprint™ box. Place the sealed tube into the specimen bag and drop your pre-labeled box at any post office or letterbox. Once they receive your sample, DNA Labs will email you a link enabling you to create a secure online account. After four to six weeks you will be notified by email that your results are available to view through your account.
How is MyBlueprint™ Unique?
AOR’s ground-breaking MyBlueprint™ DNA-based Nutrition and Lifestyle Report uses cutting-edge technology to identify your unique genetic variations that impact your specific nutrient needs, food sensitivity predisposition, hormonal imbalances, detoxification pathways and mental wellness. Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are common genetic variations that account for many of these differences. From one simple test, we can identify 84 unique variants across 65 genes that impact a wide range of health issues.
What personal information will AOR’s MyBlueprint™ collect in addition to your biological sample and how will it process and protect the data?
For the genetic tests and samples collected in Canada, all personal information is stored on Canadian servers. The de-identified genetic information is then sent to the US for processing and interpretation, which is sent back to DNA Labs, AOR’s partner in Canada. Your personalized report is generated on our secure portal for you to view.
What does AOR’s MyBlueprint™ propose to do with my information?
Your depersonalized information, test results and genetic information will only be used for creating your My Blueprint™ Report and internally by AOR for the purpose of optimizing future test results and for product improvement. There is growing consumer concern about privacy and AOR is sensitive to it. That is why we have decided not to follow many others in the marketplace who provide customer information to third parties. We will never sell or give your personal information, DNA sample results or report to any unauthorized third party. By taking this test you authorize our laboratory partners to access your personal information and sample results only for the purposes of doing the MyBlueprint™ test.
How accurate are the tests? What kind of lab performs the testing and is it certified by an accredited body?
The tests are 99.7% accurate. The testing is performed by an accredited molecular lab approved under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Advisory Committee (CLIA), which is managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additional accreditations include CAP (College of American Pathologists), CDPH (California Department of Public Health), and DOH (State of New York Department of Health). These accreditations and regulations establish quality standards for laboratory testing performed on specimens from humans for the purpose of diagnosis, assessment of health, and prevention or treatment of disease. These quality standards for laboratory testing ensure that the laboratory performs appropriate validations and demonstrates that it operates at the highest quality standards for accuracy, and reproducibility.
Will my information be processed outside Canada?
Yes, testing of the de-identified sample takes place in the United States under the rules and regulations set out by CLIA (see above). AOR has specifically chosen this lab for its stringent quality standards and reporting accuracy. However, the user database and test result database are kept separate and encrypted using Amazon Relational Database Services hosted in Canada.
How long will my personal information, biological sample and test results be retained and why? Once the service is completed and the related retention period is expired, will my sample be destroyed and my related personal information be deleted? How?
Your personal information (name, birthday, contact information) is stored indefinitely for future contact purposes in a user profile that allows access to the report in a secure online platform. The DNA sample will be kept for six months and then destroyed in a secure manner.
What about cybersecurity? How is my information being protected?
Through secure connections to a web app portal using SSL/TLS security certificates for 2018-bit data encryption. The user database and test result database is kept separate and encrypted using Amazon Relational Database Services hosted in Canada. DNA Labs and AOR do not have access to read your credentials or password, only to reset them.
