I can guess: doing the whole test and not allowing download of raw data was not selling
well, or they weren't making enough money.

I'm surprised that didn't simply allow download of the full dataset minus
the markers they use for the "health" part ... and this would probably
satisfy those nasty state regulators.

But a question does anybody know if the new chip includes all the markers
on the old one?
