Pharmacogenomics

A variety of PGx solutions for your individual needs

Pharmacogenomic research helps us to understand why individuals respond differently to medicines. This field of science and genomics allows us to develop effective, safe medications and doses tailored to an individual’s genetic makeup. It also has the potential to predict an individual’s response to a drug, allowing us to select medications over others.

In 2018, over 100 drugs discuss pharmacogenetics on their FDA labels, with well over 20,0000 publications referencing this important area of science.

Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a variety of pharmacogenetic solutions depending on your laboratory needs.
