More than 90% of the US population has at least one genetic variation that may affect their response to medication.  Due to these genetic differences, two people taking the same drug and dose may respond in very different ways; one drug might work very well for one person, but not at all for another. Or a certain drug might cause side effects for one person, but not for someone else.
Advances in genetic research and technology have made PGx testing a possibility for patients. Genelex offers a simple, low-cost, PGx test that gives you and your provider the insight to better understand how you may be impacted by hundreds of the most commonly prescribed medications.
Understand Your Potential Risk
Drug-related side effects may be serious and life-threatening.
Adverse events may occur even when the drug was prescribed normally by the doctor and used correctly by the patient. People who take several different drugs face an even greater risk of dangerous side effects, especially if they are over 65 years of age. Each year, millions of people are hospitalized because of the dangerous side effects caused by drugs. With pharmacogenetic testing and precision medicine, you're empowered to improve your life and reduce your risk, now and in the future. 
Genelex’s CLIA and College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited laboratory has been performing genetic testing for over 30 years. Our tests analyze FDA approved drugs and gene interactions.
Genelex is the only company to offer access to a evidence-based, patented clinical decision support tool that analyzes thousands of medications for adverse interactions with:
- other drugs
- over-the-counter remedies

- herbal supplements
- and foods
You will receive a patient-friendly report that will look at how your unique genetic makeup impacts your medications. You will also receive a wallet card so that you can share the results with all your healthcare providers.
Tests include a consultation with one of our pharmacists to help you understand the results and ask any questions you may have.
