Testing Strategy


Your healthcare provider will have to order a PGx test for the patient if appropriate. Once received the collection kit, the healthcare provider will collect your DNA sample via buccal (cheek) swab, extracted gDNA sources, or whole blood samples before sending to IGX laboratory. The lab will perform DNA extraction and NGS library prep for amplicon sequencing. The data will be analyzed and the report will be generated in-house using IGX database. The report will then be provided to the healthcare provider and they will review the test results during a post-PGx consultation and develop a personalized treatment strategy.
