As an industry first, the Grad DNA app has built-in functionality and processes which enable tests to be taken in airplane mode; blocking interruptions, meaning there is no invalidation of test results.
  4. End to end solution – Designed to compliment your existing process, successful completion of any mobile first solution within the app will enable further steps, such as video / f2f interviews to be arranged on the spot, increasing effectiveness and streamlining your process.
