How it Works | FAQs
To work, a drug has to be properly metabolized, absorbed, and utilized. How you metabolize medications is unique to you. Only a pharmacogenomic DNA test can forecast how you will be affected by 100s of drugs. No other tests—not urine, blood, ancestry—or family history provides the needed information.
The good news is it’s easy, painless, and affordable. And, for all the medications we test for (and more are being added as they become FDA approved) you will know if a medicine will help you, do nothing for you, harm you, or even kill you. The more drugs you take, the greater the risk.
Even drugs you have taken for years can put you at risk in the future. Now you can know in advance and decide whether or not to avoid the risk.
