deCODEme appears to have the highest testing standards and accuracy. 23andMe uses quite similar technology in their testing, but doesn’t appear to have the same level of experience in testing as deCODEme.

Knoji, a leading provider of consumer reviews and information, today announced the availability of a new consumer report covering the DNA testing services. Leading DNA testing services such as 23andMe, Ancestry.com and deCODEme are gaining popularity among consumers who want to test their DNA to discover their family history, genetic risk of developing a particular disease, and other health related information. Knoji's new coverage of this industry provides an in-depth look at the companies competing in this space and provides consumers with useful comparisons between them.
An excerpt from the report is included below:
"The key differences between the three companies:
- Ancestry.com focuses on what your genes say about your family history.
- deCODEme look at what effects your genes might have on your health.
- 23andMe combine the two to provide you with a mixture of ancestry information and health information."
"Ancestry.com tests your DNA to help give you a clearer picture of where you come from. You can either request a DNA test alone, or can combine it with access to their ancestry records to put it into greater perspective."
"23andMe provides you with a mix of ancestry and health related information based on your DNA results."
"deCODEme offers DNA testing that looks at how your genes affect your health. This includes assessing your risk for 47 diseases and conditions. The idea being that if you know you are genetically prone to certain things you can make prior lifestyle changes or develop a preventative plan with your physician."
