MatriClan Test Kit
Trace Your Maternal Roots!
With our MatriClan™ Test Kit, a simple cheek swab will reveal your African country of origin and ethnic group on your mother’s maternal line. Our test reveals your mother’s maternal roots from 500 - 2,000 years ago.
The test traces maternal ancestry by analyzing the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) women and men inherit exclusively from their mothers. In fact, you share the same mtDNA as your mother, grandmother, great grandmother and so on. Therefore, your results are the same for your siblings, maternal aunts and uncles, maternal cousins, children and your daughter’s children. See which family members share your maternal results.
- Both men and women can take this test.
- 92% of maternal results are African. We cannot guarantee that your results will be African. If your results are not African, we will determine whether your maternal ancestry is European, Asian, or Native American.
- Results include HVS1, HVS2 and HVS3 designations and haplogroup.
- The process takes about 6-8 weeks from receipt of your swabs.
