Matching result

This genetic combination is favorable in all tested components, and large proportion of existing successful relationships share this genetic pattern. It implies that you have a very good basis for building a strong relationship.

Overall Result
When determining the level of biological compatibility, we look at several different components of the HLA system. Together they provide the overall level of biological compatibility. Depending on how important certain aspects are, you can make an informed decision on whether or not it would be interesting to meet the person you’re matching with.

Level of attraction
This component tells you about the level of biological attraction you will feel with your match. Please note that biological attraction is not the same as optical attraction which is based on looks and appearances. Biological attraction is the subconscious attraction we feel for certain individuals without really understanding why.

Type of interest
Specific aspects of HLA system give us the information about the type of interest you might develop for your match. Some people will clearly be interesting for dating and forming a relationship, while others might make you feel very safe and provide a pleasant companionship. Depending on what you’re seeking, you will want to choose one over the other.

Symmetry of attraction

Symmetry of attraction
Our research has shown that majority of couples feel symmetrical attraction, that is, the strength of biological attraction they feel is similar for both partners. In certain genetic combinations one of the partners is more attracted to the other. For some people this is important, for others it isn’t. You make your own decision on how important each component is to you.

Probability of a successful pregnancy

Probability of a successful pregnancy
It has been scientifically proven that biologically compatible couples have lower miscarriage rate in the generally very vulnerable first trimester of the pregnancy. This phenomenon called “Bruce effect” is evolutionary incentive to identify kinship and prevent inbreeding. With over 7 billion people on Earth, preventing kinship might not be a real need anymore, but it is still a very strong instinct and has an impact on how our bodies function and react. Whether or not this is important component for you will depend, of course, on whether or not you plan to have children.
