Well, yeah, because they’re not making enough money through their swabs. Why not sell the DNA they scraped out of people’s heads? For a second, I wondered if it was this company:
But no, that one is Mologic Ltd. The scumbags reportedly purchased it in July, 2021. This company is called Cignpost Diagnostics Ltd.. I could not find out who owns it, as it is a privately held company. It was incorporated in in mid 2020. Cignpost has offices in Great Britain, Canada and the US.
Let me give you a clue as to what is going on here. Family history companies have been taking DNA samples from people already, and the rumor is that they could be selling the info as well. The Powers That Be want to get their hands on these samples, but why? BECAUSE THEY ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE OR ONE SPECIFIC GENOME OF PEOPLE.
CIGNPOST DIAGNOSTICS LIMITED is located in FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom and is part of the Other Ambulatory Health Care Services Industry. CIGNPOST DIAGNOSTICS LIMITED has 3 total employees across all of its locations and generates $737,800 in sales (USD). – Dun & Bradstreet

Covid test firm ‘to sell swabs carrying customers’ DNA’
A leading Covid-19 testing firm is planning to sell swabs containing customer’s DNA, prompting an investigation from the UK’s data privacy watchdog.
Cignpost Diagnostics, a government-approved supplier trading as Express Test, said it will analyse samples to sell the information to third parties, company documents have revealed.
The company claimed it will also use the medical data to “learn more about human health” and develop new drugs and products, the Sunday Times reported.
Customers booking tests through the Express Test website were not clearly told their data would be used for purposes beyond Covid-19 testing, the paper alleged.
Typically, analysis of sensitive medical information can only be carried out with explicit informed consent.
Cignpost diagnostics, which has 71 walk-in locations across the UK, is reported to have delivered up to three million tests since June last year.
The company charges between £35 and £120 for a PCR test and is estimated to have generated tens of millions of pounds from test fees alone.
Its “research programme information sheet”, last updated on October 21, says the company retains data including “biological samples” and “the DNA obtained from such samples”, as well as “genetic information derived from processing your DNA sample … using various technologies such as genotyping and whole or partial genome sequencing”.
The policy also says Cignpost may share customers’ DNA samples and other personal information with “collaborators” working with them or independently, including universities and private companies, and that it “may receive compensation” in return.
