Pharmacogenomics

Precision Medication Management

Clinical Testing

Our mission is to serve as a trusted partner to physicians, healthcare professionals and patients by providing quality testing services. Pharmacogenomics is being implemented into routine clinical practice as the medical and pharmaceutical industries move from a one-size-fits-all model to a personalized medicine approach. PGX testing can improve medication management by reducing trial and error prescribing, minimizing adverse drug reactions, improving medication compliance and quality of life, and managing health costs.
