We offer one of the most comprehensive pharmacogenomics test panels available

Quest Diagnostics offers one of the most comprehensive pharmacogenomics test panels available to help you gain insight into a patient’s potential response to medications and optimize their treatment considerations and outcomes. This includes information for over 40 genes, but does not provide information about specific drugs or drug classes. This full panel is particularly advantageous for patients on multiple medications who may otherwise require multiple panels—all at a low cost and coming from a company you trust to meet all of your lab needs.

The Pharmacogenomics Panel from Quest provides pharmacogenetic information for over 40 genes.  

Physicians receive test results in a comprehensive and easy to understand report. Results can be utilized as a reference for your patients throughout their lifetime.

Why Pharmacogenomics

Pharmacogenetics/pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the study of how inherited genetic differences impact the way drugs or medications affect a person. These genetic differences can impact the way a drug is absorbed or metabolized and thereby influence drug response. Pharmacogenomic tests may provide information about a person’s genetic makeup to help doctors decide which medications and doses might work best for him or her. Pharmacogenomic testing can also help reduce the time and costs associated with a trial-and-error approach to treatment.1

The power of pharmacogenomics

The Pharmacogenomics Panel from Quest provides pharmacogenetic information for over 40 genes, which can be used by the physician to assess:

  • Risk of adverse drug reaction
  • Efficacy (i.e., will it work?)

Consider ordering a Pharmacogenomics Panel:

  • Prior to starting a specific drug therapy with common significant adverse effects
  • If a person has started taking a drug and is experiencing side effects
  • If a clinician is having trouble establishing and/or maintaining a stable dose of a drug
  • For patients on multiple medications
