What is pharmacogenetic testing?
Depending on your genetic makeup, some medications may work more effectively, less effectively or cause side effects for you. Our pharmacogenetic test detects genes that affect the way medications work within your body. Your genetic information can be used in TreatGx to help you and your health care professional select the best medication and dosing for you.
Can ancestry be identified with GenXys pharmacogenetic test?
No, GenXys testing has no incidental findings. Unlike other genetic tests, our test is designed only to inform your medication choices.
How does TreatGx work?
TreatGx generates medication options that are safe and effective for your patients by combining genetics and health information with the best clinical evidence. TreatGx has been developed to facilitate the shared decision-making process between you and your patient. With TreatGx, you are able to access and update your patient’s information while viewing the effect this has on medication options, thereby strengthening your ability to make informed decisions about your patient’s health.
