A variety of PGx solutions for your individual needs

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

In 2019, over 260 drugs discuss pharmacogenetics on their FDA labels (1), with well over 20,0000 publications referencing this important area of science.

Thermo Fisher Scientific has been developing pharmacogenomic solutions across multiple genetic platforms since 2014. If you need help selecting the right solution for your laboratory needs, use the selection guide below or have a technical representative contact you.
