Benefits

Your unique genetic composition directly affects how you will respond to specific medications. Pharmacogenetic Testing analyzes more than 30 genes known to impact drug metabolism and efficacy to determine whether you will have positive, neutral, or adverse reactions to a particular drug or drug ingredient. Test results provide personalized information to help healthcare providers prescribe the most appropriate medications and dosages for each patient, which reduces the risk of adverse drug reactions, increases the likelihood of successful treatment, lowers healthcare costs associated with additional treatments and medical complications, and improves overall quality of life.
