Pharmacogenetics Testing

Patients Choice Laboratories is proud to offer Pharmacogenetics (PGx+) testing to help physicians and patients take better control of treatments. PGx+ testing provided by PCL delivers personalized options that are custom-tailored to each patient's specific needs. These genetic tests have been extensively validated by highly trained scientists in our laboratory under strict conditions that satisfy state and federal clinical laboratory compliance requirements.

Many of the genes on PCL Pharmacogenetics tests play a large role in how the body breaks down medications. Changes in the nucleotide sequences of these genes, called mutations, can have a significant effect on how fast or slow the body metabolizes drugs. Some mutations even cause a complete lack of drug metabolism.

Our PGx+ tests can provide genetic information to help physicians and patients decide the best medication for every patients metabolism. Using this information in deciding your drug regimen can increase first prescription accuracy and improve the effectiveness of the medications while reducing negative side effects.
