Take Control of Your Health With Precision
Molecular PGx uses cutting-edge DNA sequencing technology to decode your genetic makeup, allowing you and your healthcare team to better understand which medication works best for you.
Why Molecular PGx?
Choose from our 5 different pharmacogenetics gene variation test panels to help you find which medication works best for you.
MolecularPGx tests across 36 genes, covering more than 90% of the drugs utilized for patient care. Our 5 PGx panels are uniquely designed to include the most up-to-date research for variations of the most common drug metabolizers, transporters, and receptors that actively participate in drug metabolism and transportation, processing a broad spectrum of drugs used for any disease treatment.

Finding which drug may be most effective:
PGx testing can help physicians and other clinicians identify the most effective drug for each individual patient. This will not only help find which drug may be most effective before treatment starts, but also minimize the risk of adverse reactions and hospitalizations.
Reduce risk of adverse drug reactions
PGx testing can assess identifiable risks for adverse drug reactions before the patient takes the medication. This improves patient safety and reduces cost for healthcare facilities.
Optimize drug dosing
PGx testing provides information that can help physicians adjust and optimize the dose of current medications. Understanding how medications interact with your genes allows physicians to predict the appropriate dose of medication with accuracy. This approach enables a more personalized medication regimen that optimizes drug efficacy in your body.
Improve patient safety and personalized care
PGx tests need to be done only once since our genes do not change. The results from a PGx test will allow your healthcare provider to make more informed decisions when prescribing medication for a current condition or if new medication may be needed in the future.
Although PGx testing is safe, fast, and accurate, there are several things to consider when ordering a PGx test:
Have you struggled with getting on the right medication?
Have you been prescribed medication but discontinued because it did not work?
Did your physician recently prescribe a medication that you are worried about how it will react with your body?
Are you currently not taking medication, but wish to see if a certain medication is right for you?
Have you had adverse drug reactions in the past or was prescribed the wrong medication in the past?
Has the trial-and-error approach to finding the right medication cost you time, money, or potentially harmed you?
Drugs used in clinical settings have vast variability from person to person. It is estimated that 99% of individuals have genetic variants that impact how their bodies respond to certain medications. Adverse drug reactions are also estimated to be the sixth leading cause of death worldwide but up to 60% are preventable. This has caused highly impactful under- or over-treatment, and severely affects the safety of patients. However, physicians and patients can use PGx testing to better understand the genetic variability that may attribute to adverse drug reactivity. PGx testing provides medical practitioners with a key diagnostic tool that can help them make more educated decisions about medications for their patients.
Many genes are responsible for disparities in metabolizing medication and different reactions to drugs. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) genes are the most common gene, encoding for enzymes that metabolize more than 70% of prescription drugs. Testing for CYP gene variations enables the ability to see if individuals can metabolize the medication for it to be bioavailable and in circulation. Other genetic variations can affect drug responses for certain individuals by encoding receptors for various biological molecules that interact with prescription medication such as, neurotransmitters, hormones, cytokines, and growth factors. Testing for different gene variations offers foresight on how your body will respond to a prescribed medication, and ultimately if the medication is the right fit.
Adverse Drug Reaction Statistics:
ADRs cause over 100,000 deaths annually and are a leading contributor of morbidity and mortality in healthcare.
Every year, more than 2 million adverse drug reactions occur.
PGx testing can benefit patients who take medications that are not easily monitored or do not produce mild symptoms right away
