The endless web and business reorg has now produced this which might be their new DTC WGS spinoff, it even has the 'regular' and 'express' (2 week) service just like the old days.

"Full Raw Data
Your genome does not change or improve after birth, but science does. Your Whole Genome Sequencing Test is the best lifetime investment you can make: enabling you to make positive life changes using your sequence! Raw data formats available: FASTQ, BAM & VCF."

The rebrand may of course divert new customers away from reading all those negative reviews on TrustPilot.:biggrin1:

In case one Dante Labs spinoff wasn't enough:

On top of this, the test at Kurix Health is more expensive than stripe2be and the former doesn't mention the sequencing depth of the test.

Yeah just got the promo email too, UKP 599.00 for '8 week delivery' (ahem) with no stated read depth OR specifics on raw data formats.

Here are some expanded claims in response to my emailed questions to Kurix Health:

"We are currently finishing up work in our new lab in Dubai and England, but for now, we will continue to sequence kits here in our lab in Italy.

Regarding the read length, we are talking about a 30x read.
Finally, the RAW data will be provided in FastQ format, available and usable immediately, as soon as the sequencing of your sample is completed, on your Genome Manager."
