This video compares the aesthetic and functional aspects of 23andMe and Promethease test reports. It focuses primarily on layout and information provided, without getting bogged down in comparing exactly how these services come to different conclusions (although that is evident).
One thing I’ve noticed from using these two different services is the difference in transparency and access to information. While 23andMe make a concerted effort to minimise clutter and make their reports interactive and easily-interpreted, Promethease focus on providing information, citations and the tools that allow users to look deeper and come to their own conclusions.
Have you used either 23andMe or Promethease? How do you think these two different services compare? Leave a comment below!
