“Instant Chemistry” DNA Dating Kit Claims to Determine How Compatible You and Your Partner Are

According to a biological and neurological compatibility score.

With the high rates of divorce in today’s society, the process of finding “the one” can be daunting. But what if science could give you that extra assurance that you’ve found your soulmate?

That’s exactly what a company called Instant Chemistry aims to do. Instead of leaving it up to the trials of fate, Toronto-based founders Sara Seabrooke and her husband Ron Gonzalez created the company to provide couples with a science-backed way to confirm their compatibility.

“Relationships grow, but your DNA and core personality stay constant,” the creators, who met as medical students studying neuroscience and genetics, write on the website.

“Instant Chemistry uses cutting-edge scientific research to bring you the latest advancements in relationship science,” the creators write. “Our solution is a multipronged, comprehensive compatibility assessment that provides results that are understandable, meaningful and most important, point the way toward lasting love.”

You order a “relationship kit” containing two test tubes for saliva, and you and your partner each spit in a tube to fill it with your DNA. Send the tube back, and then Instant Chemistry will extract certain genetic information from the samples to determine “biocompatability” and “neurocompatability” scores.

First, they analyze the genes of your immune system to create a Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) profile of you and your partner. As the creators explained to The Guardian, HLA controls what bacteria grows on and in you, which produces your unique odor and taste.

“How often have you heard something like, ‘I liked him, he was cute, but we didn’t have any chemistry.’ That’s not magic, that’s science,” Gonzalez said in the interview.

Although the HLA system is comprised of a number of different genes for the immune system, there’s three in particular – HLA-A, HLA-B and HLA-DRB1 – that play an important role in “biological compatibility,” which reflects the ability to produce healthy offspring. Read more
