A comprehensive portfolio designed to deliver the results you need


Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is an exciting and powerful emerging field that promises to improve health care outcomes like never before. PGx provides meaningful data that can help prevent adverse drug reactions, deliver beneficial treatments faster, and lower medical costs. When you partner with us, you gain access to a wide range of PGx solutions and the vast expertise we’ve acquired from a decade of driving advancements in PGx.

Not sure where to begin? We can help you identify your testing requirements and make it easy for you to pick the right technology based on whether you need genotyping, copy number variation (CNV), and/or human leukocyte antigen (HLA) analysis.

Have content questions? We have carefully curated fixed content or flexible custom options, which will also guide your technology selection. We’re also here to help establish your workflow so that whether you’re testing for one target or 4,000, your lab is set up for success from the beginning. Rest assured that we continue to invest in developing innovative technologies that draw from our global network of specialists to make PGx accessible and affordable.
