How it Works
Place an online order and you will receive:

TThe pharmacogenetic test uses DNA from a simple cheek swab, and the swab is provided to you in the collection kit. The swab is easy to use and the collection can be done at home. The sample is returned by you using the provided prepaid label to the laboratory for genetic analysis.
Genetic testing is conducted at the laboratory, where your DNA is analyzed to detect genetic variants that may affect how your body responds to medications. Your pharmacogenetic information is securely transferred to your account where you can manage your medications with your healthcare provider.
By sharing your pharmacogenetic results you can facilitate shared decision-making between you and your health care professional. With TreatGx you are able to access and update your personal information while viewing the effect this has on medication options, thereby strengthening your ability to make informed decisions about your health. The TreatGx options displayed include a list of medications, pricing, dosing, additional information for management of your condition, and guidance on how to optimize your current treatment.
TreatGx is a software tool that provides personalized medication options by combining your genetics and medical information with the best clinical evidence. You can access TreatGx from your home or healthcare practitioner’s office using a computer, tablet or mobile device. Once you log into your account, you will use a series of drop down lists to enter information about your health status. This information may include your age, weight, liver and kidney function.
