Exploragen Partners with SleepScore Labs and Offers Free DNA Sequencing Kits at CES 2018

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., Jan. 9, 2018  — Exploragen, a leading DNA lifestyle company, today announced a partnership with SleepScore Labs, the company behind the most advanced non-contact sleep improvement system. The agreement enables Exploragen to launch its SlumberType DNA app on the SleepScore ecosystem.

The Exploragen team is also bringing DNA to life at CES 2018 by giving attendees the opportunity to explore SlumberType for free. The first 500 visitors to SleepScore’s booth  #43726 (Tech West, Sands Expo, 2nd Floor, Halls A-D) will be eligible to receive a free DNA sequencing kit (typically valued at $80) and access to the first and only sleep DNA app to begin their journey towards a more productive lifestyle.

“Partnering with Exploragen underscores our leadership and commitment to constantly improving the SleepScore difference. We continue to incorporate innovative lifestyle technologies such as SlumberType to provide the most actionable sleep improvement product and services for every consumer,” said Brad Horn, Vice President, Marketing, SleepScore Labs.

Exploragen creates engaging DNA lifestyle apps that allow consumers to translate their DNA into actionable insights to use in their everyday lives. The company’s apps assimilate the knowledge from published, peer-reviewed scientific studies to utilize DNA to inform lifestyle traits such as sleep, caffeine metabolism and more.

The company’s first app, called SlumberType, provides insights on the genetics of sleep and enables people to understand the way sleep is influenced by DNA. By analyzing four key sleep measurements – Chronotype, Sleep Quality, Sleep Onset Latency and Sleep Duration – the SlumberType app helps consumers determine whether they are a morning or night person, how long it may take them to fall asleep, the duration and quality of their sleep, and how these may impact other areas of their lives. SlumberType is available now from the Helix.com store. Exploragen’s next application will be released in the coming months.

“Our partnership with SleepScore is a testament to how innovative consumer goods companies are starting to recognize that DNA insights can be used to hyper-personalize products, services, and experiences,” said Ronnie Andrews, co-founder and chief executive of Exploragen. “We are delighted to be part of the SleepScore ecosystem and look forward to working together to help consumers make more practical and positive lifestyle changes, rooted in strong science.”

To take advantage of Exploragen’s FREE DNA sequencing offer at CES 2018, please visit the SleepScore booth #43726 (Tech West, Sands Expo, 2nd Floor, Halls A-D) on Wednesday, January 10.
