What is Pharmacogenetics?

Pharmacogenetics is the study of how genetic differences among individuals cause varied response to a drug.

What will the results of the test tell me?

Specifically, how quickly your body metabolizes, or filters, a given drug. Some people are rapid metabolizers. They flush drugs quickly from their system and may never realize any benefit from taking a “normal” or “one size fits all” dose. A poor metabolizer is just the opposite, with a “normal” dose building to potentially dangerous levels. Understanding how you metabolize the drugs you are prescribed allows your doctor to customize your treatment and calculate the safest, most effective dose for you.

What type of sample is required to perform the test?

A sterile swab is used to gather a sample of your DNA from inside your cheek. It is simple and painless.

Is there a cost for my test?

Testing performed by Alpha Genomix is a routine clinical laboratory test. Medicare covers this type of test as well as most private insurance plans. There may be a co-pay, depending on the specifics of your individual policy. If you have any questions regarding billing, please contact us directly at 847-882-1438.

How will I get my results?

The results of your test will be sent directly to your doctor 3-5 days after we receive your sample.
