Pharmacogenomics Testing Services Austin TX
Texas Genetic Testing offers clinics and hospitals in Austin with drug-gene testing, otherwise known as pharmacogenomics (PGX) or pharmacogenetics. Drug-gene testing allows physicians to more completely understand their patients by making relevant and accurate information available. This in turn helps physicians in Austin to provide patients with precise medication for them to get healthy and well. Pharmacogenomics testing also significantly decreases the chances of adverse drug reactions.
Why Drug-Gene Testing?
The same treatment doesn’t work for every person. And this is how genes play a role. A person’s genes help to determine which treatments, medications, and dosages will be acceptable for someone’s body. Studying how someone’s genes affect interactions with drugs has become quite accepted and common. This personalized style of medicine saves expenses from side effects and allows patients to get specialized medical care based on their genes.
When pharmacogenomics testing is performed, experimentation regarding medication and dosage is no longer necessary. This helps the treatment process move faster, is more cost-effective, and greatly reduces the potential for adverse drug events.
Pharmacogenomics Services Austin
At Texas Genetic Testing, we understand that receiving test results in a prompt manner is of the utmost importance. Sometimes testing results can take weeks to receive, which leaves experimentation with medication and dosages as the only choice in the meantime. But our pharmacogenomics testing results come back within 32 to 48 hours – one of the fastest in the nation – so that physicians in Austin can have the information they need to correctly prescribe treatments for patients.
Many private physicians in Austin do not have pharmacogenomics testing services onsite at their clinic. Usually they depend on outside labs to process and analyze the tests. Texas Genetic Testing has partnerships with pharmacogenomics testing labs around Texas. We will provide medical practices in Austin with detailed, efficient, and accurate lab results so that physicians can treat their patients appropriately. Common clients of ours include:
- OB GYNs
- Pain Management Specialists
- Internal Medicine
- Family Practice Physicians
- Addiction Specialists
Pharmacogenomics for Life
Because a person’s genes never change, they only need to be tested for a medication one time. However, a pharmacogenomics test will need to be done again should the patient be required to take a different medication. Keeping track of these results can help a patient for their entire life. Also keep in mind that there are currently no pharmacogenomics tests for every pharmaceutical medication, OTC, or herbal supplement.
