Our genetic tests look for variants in your DNA that can influence your response to medications, increase your risk of cancers associated with inherited cancer syndromes, and cause recessive disorders like cystic fibrosis.
Note: This testing can detect genetic variants (aka mutations) that may influence an individual’s health (PGx, ICGx) or family planning choices (ICGx, CSGx). It does not detect all mutations, including somatic (not inherited) mutations that occur after birth and should be used as a component of personalized medicine.
The information from genetic tests can be used in multiple areas of patient care, including inherited cancer risk assessments (ICGx), optimization of drug treatments through pharmacogenetics (PGx), and carrier screening for recessive disorders. Our lab utilizes state-of-the-art instrumentation for our genetic assays that are extensively validated in-house and performed by staff certified to perform clinical testing in molecular genetics. We understand that molecular pathology is an emerging field.
