Kin Touch

WHO OWN HALF OF YOUR GENE ?
KNOW FOR SURE. KNOW NOW.
PATERNITY + KINSHIP
MOST ACCURATE AT-HOME DNA TEST
for 1/2* and 1/4* consanguinity

*1/2 : Parents, Children, Full Siblings
*1/4 : Gandparents, Grandchildren, Uncles, Aunts, Nephews and Nieces.

PRIVATE | ACCURATE | CONVENIENT

Key Features

No Need to Mail DNA Samples for Your Paternity Test
KEEP YOUR FAMILY IN KINTOUCH

1. PRIVATE
IS IT REALLY SAFE TO MAIL YOUR PERSONAL DNA TO A REMOTE LAB?
The KINTOUCH TEST is NOT a mail-in test like other paternity tests. Instead, it is a true at-home test, which allows you to confirm, in the comfort of your home, if a presumed 1st or 2nd degree relative of your family possesses a full 1/4 (or more) of your gene. Moreover, there is no need for a third person’s DNA to conclude your kinship test results.
 
 
2. ACCURATE
CAN YOU TRUST A PROBABILITY-BASED PATERNITY TEST?
The KINTOUCH TEST is NOT a probability test like other paternity tests. Instead, it is a true diagnostic test based on the fundamental theorem of Mendelian inheritance. The KINTOUCH TEST employs whole genomic hybridization to determine the extent of matched DNA segments at ½ & ¼ thresholds of genetic consanguinity corresponding to the 1st and 2nd degree kinship, respectively. Additionally, each KINTOUCH KIT comes with two tests so that you can repeat the test twice to conclude your test results.
 
The performance characteristics of the KinTouch DNA Test are summarized in the following table.
 
 
KINSHIP Sample Space PPV NPV Accuracy*
1ST DEGREE 960 80/80* 880/880* 100%
2ND DEGREE 144 12/12* 132/132* 100%
 
*Compiled based on laboratory test results. Actual accuracy may vary due to variability of user test procedures and environment.
 
PPV: Positive Predictive Value
NPV: Negative Predictive Value
 
 
3. CONVENIENT
IS IT TRULY HARMLESS TO SCRAPE YOUR CHEEK WITH A STICK?
The KINTOUCH TEST is NOT a cheek-swab test like other paternity tests. Instead, it is a true finger touch-DNA test based on an ultrasensitive crossover lateral flow technique. The KINTOUCH TEST is very simple and easy to use. The entire test takes about 10 minutes. Just clean the test fingers, press them on the touchpads, drip 0.5ml sterilized water and, in 10 minutes, read the color of the two bands on the cassette. Moreover, the test results can be promptly saved for your record using the KINTOUCH App.
 

Technologies Used

SWIFT, Kotlin

Why these technologies ?

SWIFT: Swift is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Apple Inc. for iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and Linux. Swift is designed to work with Apple's Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks and the large body of existing Objective-C code written for Apple products. Swift is easier to read,to maintain, is safer, is unified with memory management, requires less code, is faster, supports dynamic libraries and has fewer name collisions with open source projects.

Kotlin: Kotlin's modern language features allow you to focus on expressing your ideas and write less boilerplate code. Less code written also means less code to test and maintain. Advantages : - Language and environment are mature - It’s seamlessly integrated with Android Studio - Its evolution is well covered - If you’re an Android developer, you need to recycle - It’s much safer than Java - Kotlin is multi-platform - Micro-niches are very profitable - Easy to learn and fun to use
